Researchers are now saying that efforts to simplify work tasks actually have negative results for both companies and their employees. Do you agree? Why or why not? Can you explain this question for me

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Yes I agree this may lead to low job satisfaction and ultimately,lower productivity,Work design has a large impact on the workers attitudes and behaviour  and decreased productivity and increases turnover and might offset many of the cost saving in an organisation

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Building from this, a lifeguard is fired from their job because they left their patrol area to save a drowning man. When the employer eventually offered the lifeguard their job back (after the story hit the media), the lifeguard declined. What do you think of this scenario, and what are your possible concerns about how the lessons of organizational design apply to this story?
