For decades, alarms have sounded about declining engagement. Yet companies continue to struggle with toxic cultures, and the low productivity and unhappiness that go with them. Why is “culture” so difficult to improve? What makes so many good employees check out? Neuroscientist Paul Zak shows that innate brain functions hold the answers. It all boils down to trust. When someone shows you trust, a feel-good jolt of oxytocin surges through your brain and triggers you to reciprocate. This simple mechanism creates a perpetual trust-building cycle—the key to changing stubborn workplace patterns. Drawing on his original research, Zak teases out science-backed insights for building high-trust organizations. Trust Factor opens a window on how brain chemicals affect behavior, why trust gets squashed, and ways to consciously stimulate it by celebrating effort, sharing information, promoting ownership, and more. The OfactorTM survey, data, and examples support the action plans. Engagement programs and monetary rewards are Band-Aids on broken bones. To get to the root of the problem, you’ve got to go deeper. Packed with examples from The Container Store, Zappos, and Herman Miller, Trust Factor harnesses our neurochemistry to effectively cultivate work places where trust, joy, and commitment compound naturally.

Organizations have traditionally made a clear distinction between their policies on diversity and inclusion and their policies on talent management; while they may both be a part of the HRdepartment, they have different objectives and goals to meet. Talent management is driven by a business need to ensure that the right people with the right skills are in the right place in the company, making it key to operational success.In "Inclusive Talent Management," authors Stephen Frost and Danny Kalman argue that companies need to align talent management with diversity and inclusion if they want to gain competitive advantage. Chapters explain how to integrate inclusive talent management in recruiting, promoting, and retaining employees and also provide practical steps, examples, and models for incorporating diversity and inclusion activities into talent management strategies."

A framework for HR managers and business leaders to identify and extract crucial information to lead their enterprise, business unit, or department to success, this book demonstrates how various measures—with a particular emphasis on surveys—can be reinvented to serve today’s strategic and operational needs. This reference lays out why real-time actionable information is critical to every organization today and why employees are one of the best sources of that information. With examples of how the best firms have learned to harness the most important facts and to let go of extraneous data that bogs down and distracts decision-makers, this record’s ultimate goal is to expand thinking around how to use the richness of the available information for the strategic benefit of the organization. In short, this is a book about managing organizational value—how to define it, how to measure it, and how to grow it.
