Cognitive ergonomics is concerned with mental processes as they relate to performance quality. For example, memory, perception, reasoning, and motor response are all mental processes. And these processes often affect interactions among humans and other elements of a system or business.
In short, the mental processes involved with cognitive ergonomics impact the mind's ability to interact with data, complete job tasks, and process information. As a result, employee engagement, workday productivity, and even employee satisfaction can improve when you focus on cognitive ergonomics.
To address cognitive ergonomics, the programs and software that you or your employees interact with should be easy to use. Clear and simple user interfaces, programs, and internal systems are essential. The employee workspace should also be clear, simple, and easy to use.
