ACCURACY


Accuracy

We teach data handling skills that can save your organization money, increase productivity, and improve operational efficiency. Employees who complete the accuracy training we offer typically reduce errors by 59% and increase their processing speed by 7%


Why Is Accuracy Important?

All organizations use data and every employee must be able to deliver reliable and accurate data all of the time. No matter how many fail-safe systems we use (check digits, double keying, 100% verification) people still make mistakes with numbers and data. A simple transposition of two numbers can start a chain of misinformation that can take days, and sometimes months, to fix.

Every error costs money and it can take a lot of time to find and correct errors. When you consider the additional cost of offending, irritating, and possibly losing a customer, the cost of errors is enormous. Let Evoke Development help you drastically reduce the number of errors made, teaching your staff techniques to get it right the first time, every time.

Pharmacy Error – Pregnant Woman Given Abortion – Inducing Drug in Error

Being accurate with data is important not only in our professional lives, but also in our personal lives as this recent news story clearly demonstrates.   After taking the wrong medication, a woman who is six-weeks pregnant is nervously waiting to see if there will be permanent effects to her unborn child. She was erroneously given another patients medication at a Safeway Pharmacy in Colorado. And although Safeway appears to have taken responsibility for the error, it does not fix […]

Does a “Typo” Eliminate Personal Accountability?

I continue to be amazed at the number of errors that consistently show up in Annual Reports and financial statements of public companies. An excellent example of this was highlighted in Todd Wallack’s October 4, 2010, Boston Globe article (In reporting pay, firms can err big: Figures on executives off by up to $500,000).
