I recently interviewed author Ron Friedman PhD the author of a new book entitled “The Best Place to Work, The Art and Science of Creating an Extraordinary Workplace”. As many of you might be aware the levels of engagement in the US workforce is abysmal with levels of disengagement at about 71%. So just why do we have such an amazingly high rate of disengagement from employees?
The answer to this question and many more can be found in Ron” new book ” The Best Place to Work“. Ron spent years studying the best places to work, he interviewed people and heard stories. He researched motivation, creativity, management, behavioral economics, neuroscience and combined this into his new book. In my interview with Ron he provides insights into what is required to create the “Best Place to Work.” It is not an easy formula for their are so many factors that affect how people perform and engage at work. Autonomy, Purpose, Meaning, Fun, Play are just a few of the many elements of the workplace formula that Ron and I discuss in our interview.
I know that you will find my interview with author Ron Friedman to be enlightening and give you new perspective on what companies are doing and can do to develop environments in the workplace that foster more productivity, creativity and innovation.
