WorkInspired: How to Build an Organization Where Everyone Loves to Work 1 9781260136173 Axiom Business Book Award Silver Medalist in Leadership • Soundview Best Business Book A “Highest Rated CEO” who has transformed his organization into a billion-dollar company and a “Top Place to Work” shows leaders how truly prioritizing employees isn’t just good for employees―it’s good for business. Imagine a company where everyone loves to work, where employees feel not just “satisfied” but truly cared for, respected, and energized. Think of the impact this would have on recruitment, retention, customer satisfaction, innovation, and overall performance. Aron Ain, the award-winning CEO of Kronos, a global provider of workforce management and human capital management cloud solutions, believes that anything is possible when people are inspired. By embracing employee development and engagement as a growth strategy, Ain transformed his company’s culture and built a billion-dollar business. This book takes leaders and managers inside Kronos’s highly admired WorkInspired culture, showing them the surprisingly simple rules they can follow to replicate that success. This inspiring guide reveals the best practices that have earned Kronos distinctions on coveted lists, such as Glassdoor’s 100 Best Places to Work, Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For, Forbes’s America’s Best Employers, and the Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work. These best practices include: • overcommunicating and truth-telling • trusting your people (again and again) and keeping them safe • holding managers accountable for being great at what they do • allowing employees flexible schedules and open vacation time • challenging your people to put the company out of business with innovative products • welcoming back boomerang employees • empowering the next generation workforce Many executives talk about how “their people are their greatest asset.” Ain challenges leaders to “walk the talk” and put people first, whether they oversee a team of five or an organization of 500,000. When they do, employees won’t be the only ones who thank them. Customers and shareholders will, too. This is what it means to WorkInspired.
