There is no such thing as working for one company for the rest of your career and retiring with a pension. But, what is there to take its place? This book takes a stab at defining the new relationship between a company and its employees.
The foundation of the book is that there is a responsibility on both sides of an employment relationship – and we should treat it with respect. Although we live in a world where neither employers or employees feel obligated to maintain a long term working agreement, it doesn’t mean that they are not both benefiting from it while it lasts.
There are some really good concepts that anyone in business should consider and look for ways to implement within their own organization. For example, the tour of duty concept, which isn’t new by any means, is laid out in a manner that allows you to easily understand how to implement it at your company. As employees are looking for challenges and the ability to make an impact more than raises and bonuses, this concept is easy and cheap to implement and would go a long way toward benefiting both the employee and the company.
This book will help shift your perspective on the way employers should be looking at their relationship with employees. If you have a culture problem, a recruiting problem, or a turnover problem, you will find something in this book that will help you.
