Work here now: Think like a human and build a powerhouse workplace
For decades, work has gotten more intense and more confusing – yielding both unhappy workers and less productive organizations. And if we’ve learned one thing from the Great Resignation, it’s that how we work has to change – for the sake of organizations and employees alike.
Introducing Work Here Now: Think Like a Human and Build a Powerhouse Workplace, a new book by Mercer’s North America Transformation Leader, Melissa Swift that offers a concrete proposal for reinventing the work world.
The book provides a practical, humanistic roadmap to a transformed world of work that marries economics and empathy, including 90 strategies that organizations and teams can employ to create a workplace where people are the fuel, not the brakes.
Work Here Now delivers an eye-opening roadmap to better work that generates wins for companies and employees alike.
Reading Work Here Now, you will learn:
- How work has slowly broken down over the last few decades – and concrete strategies to fix it
- Where our own thinking about how to get work done best is actually short-circuiting us – and how we should look at some basics differently
- How we accidentally create unwieldy workforces – and the inclusive thinking required to keep work going sustainably for the future
- What a reasonable future of work might look like – and the trends you should be engaging with to get there
Deploying an array of thought-provoking data and a bit of cheeky humor, Work Here Now explores fundamental questions about how we pick the talent we need, manage their performance and ultimately set them on the path to a happier, more productive workplace.
