    The productivity of employees.

    "Most of the companies pressurise their employees to be more productive when their productivity goes down. This makes employees frustrated and productivity goes further down instead of going up."

    Please check.

    Re: The productivity of employees.

    That looks OK to me but I would say "most companies"?

    Re: The productivity of employees.

    Again, you have used far more words than necessary.

    When productivity falls, many companies pressure their employees to work harder. This frustrates the employees and usually results in the opposite effect.

    They pressure them. Pressurizing people would be something different.

    Absolutely! Missed that and simply copied the original.

    Brits pressurize people. An American would need a pressure vessel and a big air pump to do that, and would probably resist if someone tried to pressure​ them into committing such a bizarre act.

    Re: The productivity of employees.

    We do use it in BrE to mean "pressure" but it's not really the right word! You certainly hear people saying things like "Did you feel pressurised into doing it?"

    Re: The productivity of employees.

    Most of the companies = the majority of a fixed set of companies, as in a survey
    Many companies = a lot of companies in general

    Do we need to say "do you feel pressure doing that?"

    That would not mean the same thing. You could say Did you feel pressured into doing it?
