Abstract:

How can corporations get the most out of their employees? Charles O'Reilly challenges the prevailing wisdom that companies must chase and acquire top talent in order to remain successful. He argues that companies need to abandon the obsession with hiring highpriced stars, and instead motivate ordinary people to build a great company and achieve extraordinary results. According to Dr. O'Reilly, companies should start with a set of values and a culture where psychological ownership takes precedence over financial incentives. Employees need to feel listened to, they need to feel that they can make a difference, and they need to feel appreciated. Easier said than done? O'Reilly shares success stories from Southwest Airlines, Men's Wearhouse, the SAS Institute, and others. He also identifies companies that have tried, but failed to change their cultures, and points out the moment of failure. Can organizations change themselves?
