Great insights into a fascinating company

Insights from inside the people operations at Google. How to attract, hire, motivate, retain or even disseminate great people from one of the world's most innovative companies. Lots of valuable insights for any managers, creators, and team members. How must your people-oriented policies relate to and reinforce your mission and vision as a company or institution? Lots of practical and sensible advice, wisdom, humour and intelligence distilled over the years.

Wish many of the "leaders"and managers I've met during my career had thought (and acted....) in tune with even a fraction of these insights...

Inspired me to ditch my high paid job in Design and pursue a job in People Operations

Beautifully sums up how Google operate from a People Operations perspective distilling some complex data into the fundamental idea that people are essentially good, and we should treat people accordingly.

Great book will make you think about HR/people

If you could sum up Work Rules! in three words, what would they be?

"thought prevoking", challenging and interesting

What did you like best about this story?

The fact that a range of real life scenarios are used to back up the concepts and that whilst the "sell" is that "this is what Google does" the examples are from smaller businesses too.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

NA

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No typical business book you read take in apply and come back to it

Sounds too much like PR for Google

Although I liked the enthusiasm of Laszlo, I felt that this was too much of an advert for Google & why you should work at or like Google.

I would not recommend it for entrepreneurs, but more for people wanting to improve their work environment within the corporate sphere.
