Abstract

One important aspect of business output and performance in the metallurgical industry is a specific working environment and related factors that affect it. In the paper, authors discuss the factors that affect the output and performance of individual workers, particularly in terms of psychosocial aspects of the work environment, whereas within the psychology of work they are generally divided into objective and subjective factors. In each of the groups of these factors it is necessary to consider those with short-term or long-term effects on monitored indicators of workers, as well as those that act upon them directly or indirectly. While changes in the output of individual workers can be monitored at frequent intervals and may be influenced through one-time measures, changes associated with the performance are a matter of a lengthier observation and may be ensured through, and in conjunction with long-term and gradual steps.

Keywords: output, performance, work environment, psychosocial aspects of work, metallurgical enterprise
