Work Rules! Insights from Inside Google That Will Transform How You Live and Lead
Human beings work more than they do anything else in life. This fact is a great reason to pursue an enjoyable occupation; the kind of work that brings a feeling of accomplishment, pride and if you are really fortunate, a sense of freedom and joy. So why do so many employees see their jobs as just a paycheck or a means to an end? Why do good workers stay in dehumanizing jobs with dysfunctional management and toxic cultures? A handful of the world’s companies have cracked the code on workplace culture. Not surprisingly, Google is one of them. The world’s companies continue to study Google’s culture and ask, “Why are Google employees so happy?” “How does Google create a fun environment for its people?” “What can I do in my own organization to replicate Google’s success?” Laszlo Bock, Google’s innovative Senior Vice President of People Operations, offers his best answers to these puzzling questions in his book Work Rules! Bock shares valuable insights and experiences from 15 years as a leader of Google’s strategy to attract, develop and retain the world’s top talent. He credits Google’s distinctive management philosophies and its unique approaches to people, culture, talent and leadership as the reason why Google is recognized as the most sought-after place to work on the planet. Bock draws on what he believes to be true and the latest research in behavioral economics and human psychology and asserts that any team can be built around the same principles Google has used to become a dynamic workplace filled with happy, creative and productive employees. Work Rules! is a simple playbook for leaders and organizations to strike a balance between creative freedom and structure that generates success in the quality of life as well as market share. And it is easier than you think. Bock himself even admits it’s not rocket science.
