…without Burning Them Out!
Dozens of innovative ideas and strategies revealed from cultures doing more than ‘engaging’ employees; they inspire them to consistently deliver ‘on fire’ performance!
Why does the CEO of QuikTrip want his employees to know his annual salary?
Why does The Container Store pay its employees up to twice as much as other retailers pay?
Why does Canada’s #1 airline hold over 200 employee celebrations each year?
Why does the “Best Place to Work” in Minneapolis call each of its 500+ employees a co-President?
on Fire at Work proves that employee engagement isn’t the ultimate goal–it’s merely the starting point. Renowned leadership expert Eric Chester has gone straight to the source—top-tier leaders of the world’s best places to work (i.e., Marriott, Siemens Industrial, BB&T Bank, Wegmans, 7-Eleven, Canada’s WestJet, Ben & Jerry’s, and The Container Store, etc.) to uncover their best practice strategies for getting employees to work harder, perform better, and stay longer.
on Fire at Work is a practical field guide that any organization can implement to build more than an engaged workforce; but rather a workforce that’s on fire!
