Transforming Workplace Cultures: Insights from Great Place to Work® Institute’s First 25 Years
To celebrate the Great Place to Work®movement entering a new decade, the Institute in 2010 published a collection of articles relating to high-trust work environments that were published over the preceding quarter of a century. The global nature of the book makes it unique, with 20 authors offering perspectives from five different continents.
In this book you will find inspiring stories and practical tips from enthusiastic adherents of great workplaces from Portugal to Australia, from the US to Argentina, and from Mexico to India. Brazil’s José Tolovi Jr. tells about how great workplaces handle crises. Italy’s Gilbert Dondé talks about the impact of workplace culture on creativity and innovation, and Australia’s Trish Dagg and Chris Taylor explain how that country’s best firms keep employee loyalty even during tough times.
Looking back at the start of the journey, Robert Levering, co-founder of the Great Place to Work Institute, said: "What we discovered amazed us. Our travels took us to companies that were not merely better than others. We found some truly great places to work – remarkable organizations where the people we interviewed raved about their workplace environments and talked glowingly about the relationships between management and employees. We felt like explorers who had stumbled on new territory. No one had written about these places before, nor had anyone made any attempt to investigate what made them tick."
