On Fire At Work – How Great Companies Ignite Passion in Their People Without Burning Them Out

On Fire At Work
254 Pages
ISBN 13: 978-0-7684-0816-4

On Fire at Work flies in the face of other books on workplace culture by showing 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—to uncover their best-practice strategies for getting employees to work harder, perform better, and stay longer.

Featuring examples and original stories from exclusive personal interviews with over 25 founders/CEOs/presidents of companies like Marriott, Siemens Industrial, BB&T Bank, Wegmans, 7-Eleven, Canadian WestJet, Ben & Jerry’s, and The Container Store, along with small to midsized companies like Firehouse Subs, EKS&H, the Nerdery, and Build-ABear, the guiding principle is that any organization in any industry—from Fortune 500 firms to mom-and-pop shops—can learn how to attract the best available talent and get every employee to bring their very best effort to the job every single day.
