Want employee engagement? Energize them!

Putting the 'we' into werk
Work has become a 4-letter word. By putting the 'we' into werk, we shift form a focus on 'me' or the one, to a focus on 'we' and the whole; werking together to create something incredible, where everyone thrives. This is the difference between work and werk.

"More and more of us find ourselves unable to juggle overwhelming demands and maintain a seemingly unsustainable pace," Tony Schwartz recently wrote in The New York Times.

 

Tony Schwartz recently touched a nerve by suggesting that we could achieve more at work by working a little less. If slowing down generally isn't the answer, is there a better way for companies to create a workflow suited to humans, with all their limitations?
