Disadvantages of Division of Labour

Disadvantages of Division of Labour

To the business:

  • Greater cost of training workers
  • Quality may suffer if workers become bored by the lack of variety in their jobs
  • Rely on the workers too much as they are irreplaceable

To the worker:

  • Boredom as they do the same job, very repetetive
  • Their quality and skills may suffer
  • May eventually be replaced by machinery
