The Workplace Revolution

Restoring Trust in Business and Bringing Meaning to Our Work

By Matthew Gilbert
From the Enron debacle to the Martha Stewart scandal, trust in business practices and in corporate leaders has been seriously jeopardized, hitting an all-time low. According to Matthew Gilbert in his latest book, The Workplace Revolution, the problem stems from a relentless work ethic, the tireless pursuit of profit, and the conflict between business values and human values. Today more than ever, people are waking up to the fact that they are not getting back what they give to their employers. While they are dedicating an inordinate amount of themselves to their work, their jobs offer little to meet their needs for community, self-expression, and service, and many have simply abandoned the possibility that self-serving, profit-driven companies can offer more than a paycheck. Gilbert assures us that the problem is not hopeless. In The Workplace Revolution, he provides both personal strategies and corporate methodologies for improving overall health in the workplace and restoring trust and goodwill between business leaders and their employees. With statistics and commentary from a wide range of sources and examples of companies such as Hewlett-Packard that are already balancing economic and human concerns, he demonstrates to worker and CEO alike that they can turn the experience of work into a spiritual, ideal-based, life-enhancing adventure for all concerned and still meet corporate goals. Revolutionary concepts for today's corporations and the health of their employees.
