Now available in all bookstores across Ireland and on https://www.amazon.co.uk

Have you always wondered what makes a happy employee? What makes and keeps an employee engaged in their role? Many companies now offer extra perks to their employees from health insurance to free snacks and possibly even a day off for their birthday and personal interests, but is this enough? Is this everything an employee wants from their job?

 ‘Trust Rules: How the World’s Best Managers Create Great Places to Work’, the international best-seller on how to build a workplace culture that achieves remarkable business results, is now available in bookstores across Ireland.

Written by Bob Lee, a leading authority on how workplace culture drives business performance, Trust Rules is a straight talking, no-jargon, business book that outlines 16 simple rules to help managers to build better teams and a remarkable work environment, leading to market-beating business results.

Based on research insights from two million employees in 80+ countries, Trust Rules explains the central role that managers play in driving employee engagement in the world’s best-managed businesses, leading to greater productivity and competitive advantage.

The research shows that the best managers do much the same as every other manager – they just do it more thoughtfully, more sincerely, and more consistently than everyone else. While only small margins separate the world’s best managers from most of their colleagues, the impact can be immense. So, what is the single factor that separates great managers from ordinary managers? Simply, it’s the level of trust that exists between these managers and their employees

‘Trust Rules’ explains the practical steps that these managers take to build a high-trust workplace culture which drives employee engagement, which in turn leads to greater productivity and competitive advantage.

The 16 Trust Rules are intuitive, practical, and surprisingly easy to live by. In fact, most managers already do much of what Bob suggests, and they do it reasonably well. However, while most managers do it well enough to ensure that their businesses survive, they don’t do it well enough to cause them to thrive. Lee’s insight is simple and powerful – small margins drive big results, and the world’s best companies achieve their superior results because of minor differences in how they manage their people.

Trust Rules achieved #1 best-seller status in Amazon.co.uk’s ‘International Business’ category within two weeks of launching and will be translated and published in 12 international markets during 2017 including Brazil, India, and South Africa.

Michael Burchell, Organisation Solutions Expert with McKinsey & Company, says: Trust Rules provides succinct, smart, practical guidance on how to create a high-trust, high-performing workplace. Every manager should read this book and refer to it often.”

 

 

Bob Lee, author of Trust Rules: How the world’s best managers create great places to work, has long been intrigued by one simple theory – how and why the world’s best employers use great workplace cultures to drive competitive advantage for their business. Bob is an internationally recognised conference speaker, media commentator and former Director of Great Places to Work Institute UK and Ireland – the global authority on high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures.

With over 15 years’ experience interviewing the world’s best (and worst) managers and completing an MBA at University College Dublin Smurfit Business School, Bob  set out to understand what the best managers were doing to create such positive working environments for their employees, and in turn, help their organisations perform better. Carefully studying feedback from almost two million employees in 80 countries in a bid to better understand behaviours, attitudes and trends from some of the world’s greatest and worst managers, Bob compiled his research into practical, understandable terms.

From his research bore his first book – Trust Rules: How the world’s best managers create great places to work. The book achieved #1 best-seller status on Amazon.co.uk’s International Business category within two weeks of launching and will be translated and published in 12 international markets during 2017.

The key message of Bob’s work is that the best way to build a high performing business that consistently outperforms its competitors is by building a high trust culture in which people are trusted to do their best work. The key to a better workplace, the unique distinguishing factor, is the level of trust in the workplace – particularly between managers and staff.

Trust Rules: How the world’s best managers create great places to work is a straight talking, no-jargon, business book that will allow all managers to pick up and follow the 16 rules to improving their management style, and in turn their workplace and business performance.
