From the pioneers of the management strategy that's transforming businesses worldwide, Making Work Human shows how to implement a culture of performance and gratitude in the workplace—and seize a competitive edge, increase profitability, and drive business momentum.

Leaders of Workhuman, the world's fastest-growing social recognition and continuous performance management platform, Eric Mosley and Derek Irvine use game-changing data analytics to prove that when a workplace becomes more "human"—when it's fueled by a culture of gratitude—measurable business results follow. In Making Work Human, they show you how to: apply analytics and artificial intelligence in ways that make work more human, not less; expand equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives and strategies to include a wider range of backgrounds, life experiences, and capabilities as a step to end systemic social and racial injustice; and use recognition as an actionable strategy to create a more socially connected, inclusive culture—especially critical during a global pandemic when employees are working remotely.

By building a sense of belonging, purpose, meaning, happiness, and energy in every employee, you'll create a profound connection between your organization and its goals. And Making Work Human provides everything you need to get there.
