Business success depends on employee innovation, drive, skill, endurance, and dedication. Engaged employees, studies show, provide tangible advantages to the organization and its bottom line: greater customer satisfaction, reduced turnover, higher productivity, improved profitability, better safety results, and higher stock prices. In contrast, the Gallup Organization has discovered that disengaged workers cost U.S. business between $250 billion and $350 billion each year. How do you engage employees and, in turn, create the high-performance organization? With a different emphasis in each volume, that's what this set is all about. Volume 1: The New Employer-Employee Relationship Volume 2: The Engaged Workplace: Organizational Strategies Volume 3: Case Studies and Conversations From the latest theories on motivation to innovations in HR to methods to increased employee retention, it provides the essential insights and tools managers, leaders, and HR people need to find new ways to succeed--while keeping employees happy, productive, and loyal. Employees know that cradle-to-grave--or even week-to-week--employment security is a thing of the past, and that they are at the helm of their own career ship. Discerning consumers in the employment marketplace, they therefore seek employment opportunities that speak not only to their wallets and life circumstances, but also to their desire to find work that provides purpose and passion. How can employers meet these needs and create a team of engaged employees? That's a large question, and one that spans a spectrum of issues that includes career development, human resource management, and the alignment between individual and organizational goals.In these three volumes, leaders and managers will find answers. They feature articles, interviews, and reports from academics, psychologists, managers in the practical corporate world, and experts in career management. Despite what Donald Trump might say, work is personal, and the ways in which individuals navigate the organizational environment--and businesses organize to seek, attract, and retain the best employees--is of primary concern. That goes double in these turbulent times, when job security is at stake, cynicism rampant, and loyalty at risk. This set: *Covers both theories and practices driving the development of the modern employment relationship--from both employee and organizational perspectives. *Touches on the timely issues of career management, balance of personal and professional goals, and, for organizations, finding and retaining the best employees and creating workplace cultures that inspire them to do their best work. *Provides principles and practices that can be used by companies of all sizes, in all sectors, and in all parts of the world. *Features an all-star cast of contributors from corporate leadership, academia, practice, and consulting; special elements include interviews with business leaders and many best practice examples. Building High-Performance People and Organizations connects the dots so employers can maintain a loyal, satisfied, and productive workforce. Volume 1: The New Employer-Employee Relationship This volume looks at trends in demographics and the general business environment leading to and driving the concept of employee engagement. It addresses such issues as changing workforce demographics, essential considerations in using employeesurveys, building a high-performance culture, measuring and managing human capital, engagement and change management, managing virtual work teams, and the impact of globalization and technology on the employer-employee relationship. Volume 2: The Engaged Workplace: Organizational Strategies This volume focuses on real-world organizational strategies to find, develop, and retain the best employees, with an emphasis on innovative practices in both the U.S. and internationally. Topics covered include hiring and staffing strategies, the essential elements of work/life balance,
