Right on & succinct. You Can Have Super Dedicated and Engaged Employees Just by Doing These 7 Simple Things 22 May


If employee engagement or culture is on the top of your company’s agenda then this award winning book will become a vital tool. It is the collective work of forty-five corporate leaders inspired to move the needle on dismal state of workplace engagement. Here are a few facts we discovered:

  • 70% of employees would rather be anyplace else but work
  • You are better off paying 20% of your employees to stay home because of their toxic effect
  • The lifespan of an S&P 500 company has dropped from 60 years in 1960 to under 15 years in 2014 and falling
  • In a global survey of 1600 CEO’s keeping up with change and the need for innovation is their number one concern
  • The study described what we called the ladder to innovation.  It depends on collaboration and collaboration is contingent on engagement.

These five facts define the dilemma every organization and leader faces. The research led to examining more than fifty of some of the most engaging companies on the planet and discovering what they do differently to protect, refine or transform their cultures.

The book is written in a fast paced investigative journalistic style to take you behind the scenes and reveal the secrets for creating a highly engaging workplace through stories and characters we met.  It is also the 2015 winner of the CoreNet Industry Excellence Award. When you finish this book it will be underlined and tabbed for future reference. We hear stories every week of people handing copies of the book to their peers and leaders eager to move the needle toward and engaging workplace.

Change Your Space will transform the way you think about workspace. An insipid workspace is worse than a lost opportunity; it is a lodestone in a world where companies must innovate to survive. This book offers actionable insights and real world examples to demonstrate how and why your workspace is critical for forming, shaping, and retaining the sort of team and culture required for success. I found it so compelling that I’m planning to incorporate the book into my “Building Innovation Teams and Cultures” MBA course at Kellogg.
