For organizations to achieve the full measure of success, senior executives must understand and effectively manage human factors in the workplace. Human factors appear in individuals as well as in larger systems and as such, they affect nearly every organizational output, from safety performance to productivity and company culture. Addressing them in a holistic way is a necessary precondition to peak performance.
