by Joe Sherwood on February 1, 2015

Best Place to WorkAs a leader, how can you create a great place to work that not only attracts great people but also promotes smarter thinking, greater innovation, and stronger performance? As you probably already know, there’s a popular annual survey about great places to work that boils everything down to trust. But is there more to it than that?

In the brand-new book The Best Place to Work, award-winning psychologist Ron Friedman, Ph.D. uses the latest research from the fields of motivation, creativity, behavioral economics, neuroscience, and management to reveal what really makes us successful at work. Combining powerful stories with cutting-edge research, Dr. Friedman shows leaders at every level how they can use scientifically-proven techniques to work smarter and turn any organization—regardless of its size, budgets, or ambitions—into an extraordinary workplace.

An expert on human motivation, Friedman has served on the faculty of the University of Rochester, Nazareth College, and Hobart and William Smith Colleges, and consulted for some of the world’s most successful organizations. Popular accounts of his research have appeared on NPR and in major newspapers, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Vancouver Post, The Globe and Mail, and The Guardian, as well as magazines such as Men’s Health, Shape, and Allure.
