Work Rules!

Audiobook
From the visionary head of Google's innovative People Operations—a groundbreaking inquiry into the philosophy of work, and a blueprint for attracting the most spectacular talent to your business and ensuring the best and brightest succeed."We spend more time working than doing anything else in life. It's not right that the experience of work should be so demotivating and dehumanizing." So says Laszlo Bock, head of People Operations at the company that transformed how the world interacts with knowledge. This insight is the heart of Work Rules!, a compelling and surprisingly playful manifesto with the potential to change how we work and live.Drawing on the latest research in behavioral economics and with a profound grasp of human psychology, Bock also provides teaching examples from a range of industries—including companies that are household names but hideous places to work, and little-known companies that achieve spectacular results by valuing and listening to their employees. Bock takes us inside one of history's most explosively successful businesses to reveal why Google is consistently rated one of the best places to work in the world, distilling fifteen years of intensive worker R&D into delightfully counterintuitive principles that are easy to put into action, whether you're a team of one or a team of thousands.Cleaving the knot of conventional management, some lessons from Work Rules! include the following: Take away managers' power over employeesLearn from your best employees—and your worstOnly hire people who are smarter than you are, no matter how long it takes to find themPay unfairly—it's more fair!Don't trust your gut; use data to predict and shape the futureDefault to open; be transparent and welcome feedbackIf you're comfortable with the amount of freedom you've given your employees, you haven't gone far enoughWork Rules! shows how to strike a balance between creativity and structure, leading to success you can measure in quality of life as well as market share. Read it to build a better company from within rather than from above. Read it to reawaken your joy in what you do.
