A = 950/1,000 × 100 = 95%
B = 900/1,000 × 100 = 90%
C = 960/1,000 × 100 = 96%
D = 850/1,000 × 100 = 85%

the year the company has recruited 65 workers. Of these, 18 workers were recruited in the
vacancies of those leaving, while the rest were engaged for an expansion scheme. What is the
labour turnover rate under separation method ?

Solution:

Average number of workers = (400 + 500)/2 = 450 Separation method = No. of separations
during the period x 100 Average number of workers during the period = 20 + 15 x 100 450 =
7.78%

Problem No 5 .

‘Under the Rowan Premium Bonus system, a less efficient worker can obtain same bonus as a
highly efficient worker.’ Discuss with suitable examples.

Solution
Bonus under Rowan system = (Timeallowed/Timetaken)x time saved xrate per hour
For example let time allowed for a job = 4 hours and Labour rate = Rs. 5 per hour.

Case I : Less efficient worker
If time taken = 3 hours
Then time saved = 4 – 3 = 1 hour
Bonus = (3 hours/ 4 hours)x 1hourx Rs.5=  Rs.3.75

Case II : Highly efficient worker
If time taken = 1 hour
Then time saved = 4 – 1 = 3 hours
Bonus = (1hour/ 4 hours )x 3 hours x Rs.5=  Rs.3.75
So, it can be concluded that under Rowan System, the less efficient worker and highly efficient
worker can get the same bonus.

(iii) If it is due to the negligence or delay of workers of a particular department, it may be
charged to the concerned department.
(iv) If it is due to circumstances beyond control, it may be charged to Costing Profit & Loss
Account.
