Abstract:

A groundbreaking, practical guide for fueling workplace happiness, creativity, and success based on the latest research from the behavioral sciences. Why do companies with bigger lunch tables have higher productivity' What can casinos teach us about creating a happy workplace' How can renovating an office bathroom boost employees' creativity' In The Best Place to Work, award-winning psychologist Ron Friedman, Ph. D. uses the latest research from the fields of psychology, economics, neurobiology, marketing, and evolutionary anthropology to reveal what really makes us successful at work. Integrating powerful stories and cutting edge science, Friedman explains how companies'and every one of the people working in them, from the front lines to the corner office'can leverage proven psychological techniques that naturally lead to smarter thinking, greater innovation, and stronger productivity. Among the many surprising insights, Friedman explains how learning to think like a hostage negotiator can help you diffuse a workplace argument, why hanging a picture of the outdoors near your desk can enhance your thinking, and how exercise balls and treadmill desks deplete your cognitive resources. Along the way, the book introduces the man who created the cubicle, the president who took down the nation's number one criminal, and the violinist whose job interview shocked the world'stories that offer unexpected insights on achieving workplace excellence. Brimming with counterintuitive revelations and actionable recommendations, The Best Place to Work offers employees and executives alike game-changing advice for turning any organization'regardless of its size, budgets, or ambitions'into an extraordinary workplace.
