Workers are more satisfied when they have many different types of tasks to do during the workday than when they do similar tasks all day long. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer
One of the biggest challenges that every business is facing is worker's happiness. There are many different ways to improve the working environment and one of them is diversifying workers' duties. I completely agree with this idea and in the following paragraphs, I will explain my reasons in its favor. First and foremost is that doing repetitive tasks is so boring. When someone is exactly doing the same activity every day, he/she would not have any motivation at all. This means that there will be no incentive to try harder and work more efficient because there is no need for it. For example, when I was working in a drug store three years ago, my task was putting drugs on their shelves. At first, this seemed an exciting job, but as time passed, it was not a big deal anymore. I started to feel disappointed and was considering it a pointless activity. After days of struggling with myself, I preferred to resign from that work because I felt unhappy. Another important factor is that doing things that are just alike would increase the human error rate. That is to say, in these situations when the workers incorrectly assume that he/she is always doing his/her duty right, the probability of mistakes would rise. This also happened to me in my pharmacy career. I remember one day that I put a cardiovascular drug in the wrong place, on the antibiotics shelf! This reason was that its name was similar to an antibiotic, so I made a mistake. However, I think that this happened due to the fact that I trusted myself more than I had to. All in all, offering different jobs to the labor force will augment their motivation, and also prevent mistakes from happening. This is why I wholeheartedly believe that workers have to experience different jobs. Nevertheless, there should be an equilibrium.
