Thanks and you have a good point. Jeff Pfeffer's 1998 book Human Equation makes a strong, evidence-based, case for treating employees as valuable and appreciating assets as you put it. And the evidence in support of his case has become stronger since. I'll put it on my list.



Couldn't ask for more than that. Be interesting to see if Economist/ WSJ/NYT pick it up as it clearly deserves to be. Congratulations.

Frankly though I'm waiting for the follow-on work on management system design and operation designed to treat employees as valuable and appreciating assets. As opposed to fungible commodities.
