THE SYSTEMIC PROBLEM ODCONNOISSEUR’SORATE Prof. RayTitus

The call to ‘system’ is a fair one. After all systems bring with it order and efficiency. Organizations world-wide have been reporting on gains from designing and implementing systems, facilitated by technology. But amidst all the brouhaha it is pertinent that the question be asked, ‘what can systems do to people?’ For there is as much possibility that systems reduce costs, as there is the prospect of it diminishing ‘human’, within it.

Is it therefore any surprise that the latest Australian Institute of Management employee engagement survey reveals forty per cent of the workforce felt unappreciated and 33 per cent were considering leaving their employer? The survey also showed that money didn’t matter as much, what mattered more was job satisfaction; good relationships with co-workers; good relationships with managers; new challenges; feeling valued by the organization; work-life balance; flexible work arrangements; job security and professional development opportunities. >>
