This book tackles one of the big problems employers face today: finding and keeping the best employees, especially at a time when young workers typically quit after only three years on the job. Rethink Work stands out from other books in this category because the author is one of those young people: 24-year-old Eric Termuende, a rising star on the international speakers circuit.
" Eric Termuende does a deep-dive into the modern workplace, highlighting the importance of hiring right and creating awesome culture to retain top talent." - Brian Scudamore FOUNDER AND CEO OF O2E BRANDS, INCLUDING 1-800-GOT-JUNK
"Eric Termuende takes a wide departure from the standard writings on workplace culture and organizational effectiveness by putting the focus where it belongs: on people! Eric sees the potential for organizations to refine their culture, embracing the uniqueness and passion each person brings to their work. This refreshing and inspiring book is a must-read for any business leader who wants to leapfrog their competition during a period of rapid technological change." - Jim Dewald DEAN, HASKAYNE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS, UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY
This is one of the most important books a leader in today's work world can read. Termuende provides an overview of the many challenges modern work environments face, including the recruitment and retention of talent. The roadmap Termuende provides articulates how to take these challenges and in turn transform company culture into one where both employers and employees focus on "why" they do what they do and on a mutual values match. Termuende also explores more dynamic ways to recruit, write job descriptions and overall "how" to tell your company's story. One of the biggest takeaways however is the importance of focusing on your employees as individuals and not their generation." - Gareth McVicar MANAGER, LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS, UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY
