Division of Labor in General

In general, a division of labor is needed among personnel in a certain profit or non-profit organization in doing work activities  to be able to increase efficiency, productivity and just.

The very reason is that no person can do specific work activities at the same time.

However, some work activities requires a multi-tasking people for a certain job in a department of an organization. Let say, in accounting department a personnel can perform multi-tasking activities related to accounting, taxation, audit or finance.

Persons who do multi-tasking job in an organization has a greater possibility of omissions and errors compared those people who do specific task.

A large company is advise to have a division of labor of personnel for a specific work activities in every department. (Ex. Accounting & Finance, Marketing & Sales, Administration and Others).

For me, there is always exception to the general rule as long as there is no deprivation of human rights of the people involved.
