New Book Claims: To Retain Talent in the Great Rethink, Companies Need to Make Work Truly Enjoyable

Faced with the global health crisis and other challenges that came afterward, employees are rethinking their expectations radically. They prioritize the quality and meaningfulness of their lives over sacrificing themselves for their companies. The situation of the employers has changed permanently as well. Leaders ask about how to manage remote workers, communicate effectively, maintain their culture and attract employees to meet each other in the office.

As an answer to these questions, theLivingCore has released a book called The Enjoyable Company: Making Work Work in a Post-Pandemic World. They claim companies should use the global pandemic disruption and The Great Rethink to future-proof and reshape themselves profoundly. The goal is simple: to make work truly enjoyable. But to do that, we first need to understand what joy really is and what steps leaders can take to make it work for their people. The Enjoyable Company provides this information and guides leaders through principles and exercises to put them into action.

“When your employees truly enjoy their work and feel they are a genuine part of your organization, they bring their full, authentic selves to the workplace. And with them, their full potential, dedicated to the common goals of your organization. Joy is the most fundamental thing we, as people, want to experience. We claim that companies exist to fulfill this purpose. Successful business developments and innovations will follow. And with them, financial success. We made this guide for the owners, leaders, and courageous individuals who want to make this vision a reality.” -The Enjoyable Company, p. 5
