I am going to plug a book in this post, a book about modern workplaces and what employees want. And why employers should make sure that employees get what they want. Because what employees want is respect. That is the basis of any good relationship, and it is essential for employee motivation and productivity.
The book is entitled What Employees Want And Why Employers Should Make Sure They Get It. Check it out here: http://tinyurl.com/yd3jtx6p
