Joy At Work: A Revolutionary Aproach To Fun On The Job - hardcover

ISBN: 0976268604

[SR: 59434], Gebundene Ausgabe, [EAN: 9780976268604], PVG, PVG, Book, [PU: PVG], PVG, Dennis Bakke was co-founder and eventually CEO of AES, a large energy company which grew to over $8 billion in annual revenue and over 40,000 employees. Bakke's Joy at Work is in part, a CEO memoir, as it chronicles AES's growth, complete with anecdotes about boardroom confrontations, employee relations, and new openings of production facilities. Joy at Work goes beyond the standard business tale, though: Bakke believes in moral values as ends in themselves, as opposed to means towards the end of greater financial return, and he's not afraid to say it. A number of authors in recent years have made the case that companies which embody humanistic values, and which nurture uplifting cultures, come to house happier, more productive employees. "Values" should be embraced, the argument goes, because they lead to better business results. Bakke shuns such thinking. He wants "values" for values' sake--because he believes they are an integral part of the human experience, and one that daily work should incorporate. He argues that financial return is only one good alongside others. As Bakke writes at one point in Joy at Work: "Why should enriching shareholders be more important than producing quality products and selling them to customers at fair prices?" Readers who start off sympathetic to Bakke's worldview will likely enjoy Bakke's book. "Joy at Work" is situated perfectly within values-led business literature, alongside books like Howard Schultz’s Pour Your Heart Into It, the Body Shop's Anita Roddick (Take It Personally) and Ben & Jerry's Double Dip, by the ice-cream guys. Joy at Work provokes questions and warrants a read, if, for no reason other than its impressive string of blurbs from friends of the author: Everyone from President Bill Clinton to Seattle Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren vouches for Bakke and his gospel. --Peter Han, 58302011, Management, 58298011, Management & Führung, 58173011, Business, Karriere & Geld, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 58184011, Motivation, 58298011, Management & Führung, 58173011, Business, Karriere & Geld, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 54808011, Christliches Leben, 54817011, Beziehungen, 54816011, Frauenfragen, 54812011, Führung, 54810011, Glaube, 54809011, Jüngerschaft, 54814011, Lebenshilfe, 54821011, Verehrung & Gottesdienst, 54813011, Verwaltung, 54815011, Wirtschaft, 54807011, Christentum, 54682011, Religion & Esoterik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher
