How do organizations move beyond merely acknowledging that "human capital" is their greatest asset to actually implementing practices that create significant benefits for both employees and organizations? In this book, Ed Lawler argues that in order to "treat people right" organizations must do more than simply provide good working conditions and good pay. Faced with changing markets, fickle customers, free–agent employees, and a volatile stock market, they need to build a "virtuous spiral" in which good performance at all levels of an organization pays off for both the organization and the individual. He identifies what individuals and organizations can do to build a mutually beneficial relationship that fits today′s business environment. In the chaotic business world of the twenty–first century, the relationship between individuals and organizations can make the difference in the survival of an organization. Treat People Right! provides a blueprint for creating greater rewards and better employee performance that will in turn propel an organization to higher and higher levels of performance.
