Employee Engagement: Simplification at Work

Radiocasts | April 22, 2015 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: Engagement.

Baylor University and SAP researchers report that employee engagement is alarmingly low worldwide, with just 13% of employees feeling actively engaged. Wondering if complexity in organizations could be a root cause, they explored whether simplification, engagement, and trust together contribute to better-functioning companies.

The experts speak.

Dr. Ann Mirabito, Baylor: “Everything should be as simple as possible, but not simpler.” (Albert Einstein)

Lauren Moser, Baylor: “Hell isn’t merely paved with good intentions; it’s walled and roofed with them. Yes, and furnished too.” (Aldous Huxley)

Josh Arnold, Baylor: “God help those with open hands, may they never feel burden again. I’ll stand up for those that can’t. I’ll close the distance.” (A Day to Remember lyrics, “Sometime You’re The Hammer, Sometimes You’re The Nail”)

Deb Stambaugh, SAP: “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.” (Robert Frost)
