The Law Of Diminishing Returns is one of the most famous in economic production theory. I believe we are there regarding our workplace. it states..." law of diminishing returns states that in all production processes, adding more of one factor of production,while holding all others constant, will at some point yield lower per unit returns." years ago we were told that it was better for the co to have 2 employees work 60 hrs a week rather than 3 people working 40 hrs a week. they also said that the cost of injuries, extra sick days, and more accidents , resulting in these extra hrs was all factored in by the bean counters. we are there at my hub. most package and feeder drivers are working close to the max now for the last several yrs. but how do you factor in the "intangibles?" like lower moral , job dissatisfaction, unhappiness, and other negative attitudes that customers pick up on. not only that by overall lower production rates. this has to be costing the co moolah. This can't be productive in the long run. whatever happened to "getting the big picture?" thoughts?
