generally divsion of labour can advantage and disadvantage a company. firms may train employees to a certain position so that they are specialised and only work on one aspect of production E.g the engine of a car. This increases the efficiency of a firm possibly leading to higher output. The greater efficiency linked with the higher output generally means an increase in profit due to less money being spent on commodities such as eletricity for example and they are making more due to higher output and increase quality over their competitors. Yet, this makes employees bored of working and may drop the moral in workers. As well as this, if someone has a sick day, the general process of creating a product collapses and the company as a result is behind on its task and won't make as much profit. (don't refer to as money, use profit!) Hope this helps.
