Employees productivity will only be reduced as if there is no frequent interaction with each other throughout the entire day. So D is the right answer from ny point of view. Option c tells us that the employees need supervisors " eventual" approval so this might not be the right answer

A company is considering changing its policy concerning daily working hours. Currently, this company requires all employees to arrive at work at 8am. The proposed policy would permit each employee to decide when to arrive - from as early as 6am to as late as 10am.

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 with each other throughout the entire workday
e) undertake projects that take several days to complete.

If the workers are supposed to interact with each other then the productivity of employees overall will be decreased becuase the employees will spend time waiting for the rest of the employees to arrive and start working.

I got the right answer D but I was confused between B and D. For what reason we should eliminated B?

I eliminated option B because the passage is not concerned about the employees of other companies? Is this thinking right?

Hi
Let me try

Think You and I work in that company.
our company has this flexible timing.

You and I need to consult at least once a day with employees from other companies.
So whenever you/I come , ATLEAST ONCE A DAY you can interact and this issue of flexi timings wont hamper your productivity.


But in D
interact frequently with each other throughout the entire workday
if You and I interact often with each other and with other colleagues, then there will be delays in interaction if we are allowed to come as per our convenience...and so it will hamper company's performance.

So D is ans

Hope this helps
