Google is an organization known for providing employees with benefits and perks that most of us could only imagine. Work Rules written by Laszlo Bock, Google’s former head of People Operations, shares how Google has created a revolutionary work environment and transformed the employee experience. Bock shares both the successes and failures experienced at Google and provides a framework for any organization to easily follow and implement what has worked for Google.
Here are the work rules discussed in the book:
The lessons shared in this book center on one main theme which is to focus on the employee and the employee’s experience. Often times as leaders we focus on organizational strategies and forget that employees are the driving force behind successful strategies. Organizations don’t have to completely change the way they operate but instead focus on one area because sometimes the smallest change can have the biggest impact.
