Episode Description

The buzz: Money can’t buy you love. As the complexity of workforce challenges deepens, so will the demand for quantitative approaches to address the people-related questions central to your organization’s simplification and success. According to 2014 Oxford Economics and SAP research, employees want higher compensation and more career opportunities. How is your company keeping valued talent engaged while measuring performance against the right metrics and incentivizing them to help achieve your goals? The experts speak. Nathan Sloan, Deloitte: “I was there to push people beyond what's expected of them...an absolute necessity. Otherwise, we're depriving the world of the next Louis Armstrong” (“Whiplash” film). Eric Lesser, IBM: "At the end of the day you bet on people, not on strategies" (Lawrence Bossidy). Kerry Brown, SAP: “Simplicity is complexity resolved” (Constantin Brancusi). Join us for Are Your Metrics and Incentives Rewarding Complexity or Simplification?
