A company is considering changing its policy concerning daily working hours. Currently, this company requires all employees to arrive at work at 8 a.m. The proposed policy would permit each employee to decide when to arrive—from as early as 6 a.m. to as late as 11 a.m.

The adoption of this policy would be most likely to decrease employees’ productivity if the employees’ job functions required them to

(A) work without interruption from other employees
(B) consult at least once a day with employees from other companies
(C) submit their work for a supervisor’s eventual approval
(D) interact frequently with each other throughout the entire workday
(E) undertake projects that take several days to complete

D .
if the job requires that employees interact throughout the entire workday, then coming in at various times would impact the quality of interaction

D is the best choice. If interaction with each other throughout the entire workday is nescessary, then different working hours would disrupt productivity.

It is a straight D. If workers come at different times, frequent interaction among them becomes difficult.

Definetly D.

If A arrives at 8 and works very closely with B, who arrives at 11...A is going to unproductive from 8-11.

D. If the workers adopted a flextime system, then a.m. interaction would be seriously limited resulting in decreased productivity.

Clear D for me

A is out because employees are not as likely to be interrupted if they work staggered work hours
B is also out because there would be some point in the day which they could reach employees from other companies at least once
C is out because they could submit work anytime
E is out because the project would still take days to complete whether they started at 6 or 9 in the morning.

Why can't we choose B ? We do not know the timings of other companies. So this can be a choice right ?

Re: A company is considering changing its policy concerning [#permalink] New post 26 Jun 2013, 12:32
@grakesh - Option B is incorrect because the company (suppose A)mentioned in premise restricts the timings of company A only and not on the employees of other companies. So, any worker of company A, who need to interact with employees of other companies, can do so in the timings suitable for the employees of other companies.
Hope it helps
