Make work suck less and improve the performance of your people with this practical, hands-on guide

The COVID-19 pandemic and an ever-changing array of new ways of working seem to have all of us asking, “Does work really have to suck this bad?” It looks like a small taste of flexibility and freedom has made many of us rethink the nature of the work we do and how we do it.

In Work Here Now: Think Like a Human and Build a Powerhouse Workplace, Mercer’s North American Transformation Leader Melissa Swift delivers an eye-opening roadmap to better work that generates wins for companies and employees alike. In the book, you’ll explore different ways to improve the growth-impeding, borderline inhumane people management practices we’ve created and endured over time. You’ll also find:

  • 50 strategies to create a powerhouse workplace at organizational level
  • 50 strategies to create a powerhouse workplace at team level
  • A simple framework to help you make people-centered decisions

An incisive and practical take on managing and working with people that―for once―doesn’t rely on hackneyed idealism or management-by-algorithm, Work Here Now is the hands-on performance improvement tool that executives, managers, HR professionals, and other business leaders have been searching for.
