Quality Assurance and control is an ongoing goal and challenge for many companies. Many countless hours and financial resources are dedicated towards efficient structural engineering and equipment operations. However, the efficiency of those behind these controls, namely the employees should also be taken into account. Employees are expected to have full and undivided attention in their work. This ability to maintain focus on specified tasks at work is rarely assessed or trained. Research has shown that human errors associated with poor concentration and attention is one of the key variables associated with error and omission costs in the workplace!
Have you ever been focused on one object/task and completely lose sense of your surroundings or another unexpected object that comes into your same field of vision. I have seen many such cases where clients have sustained injuries because of this. We are interactive beings, and because we are engaged in various tasks throughout the day our ability to maintain attention can get challenged. There are many common distractions that can impede our attention (like dealing with phone calls, worrying about family issues, dealing with multiple tasks at work, etc.). Therefore, when it comes to cognitive performance, especially at work, we need to think about training our attention skills.
So what is the solution?
Honsberger Physio+ has teamed up with the developers of Play Attention, Dynavision and Neurotracker to create cost-effective neurocognitive programs to help individuals enhance their attention skills and to help companies improve overall productivity and efficiency!
Some of these can even be done from the comfort of your own home!
Your path to improvement, starts with the brain!
