Cloze Test Questions asked in SBI PO Prelims May 6 1st Slot

Ergonomics is perhaps one to the most widely abused, misunderstood, and underutilized words and concepts in today’s business lexicon. It is also seen as having difficult-to- measure benefits, and it is generally not regarded as a tool to increase profitability.

Applied comprehensively in a business, which it seldom is, ergonomics can be as important a business concept as strategic planning and quality control. It has a real and direct impact on productivity, performance, throughput, delivery of services, and most of all, the bottom line. It can affect an entire business by enhancing the most important business component–the ability of workers to do their work.

Ergonomics helps workers function better by humanizing their workstation and tools, stopping their pain, and improving their ability for task performance. Its prescriptions can be applied to both white and blue collar workstation environments. It reduces lost time, time loss, and absenteeism, and saves hard dollars that can be measured through standard management systems. Ergonomic applications allow workers to perform better, improve productivity, maximize quality, and maintain customer service, all real-world business principles and thus measurable by real dollars.

It is also now becoming well known that ergonomics applications can reduce workers’ compensation and medical costs. That’s easy to measure. But other than that, how do you measure the result of ergonomic applications, actual productivity, especially in the white collar area? Sure, ergonomic chairs make people feel better, but how do you measure that effectiveness on the financial statement.
