Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If we have high occupancy and low service level, then we have excess staff.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    If we have high occupancy and low service level, it does not necessarily mean that we have excess staff. It is possible that the staff is not able to meet the service demands due to other factors such as lack of training, inefficient processes, or inadequate resources. Therefore, the statement is not always true and the answer is false.

    If service level is high and occupancy is low, then we have excess staff.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If the service level is high, it means that the staff is able to handle customer demands efficiently and effectively. If the occupancy is low, it means that there are fewer customers or clients to serve. Therefore, if both conditions are met - high service level and low occupancy - it suggests that there are more staff members available than necessary to meet the current demand. This indicates an excess of staff.
