SVP, People Operations at Google and author of WORK RULES, Laszlo Bock Said
“After the publication of the book, I was humbled by the outpouring of support and interest from people all around the world. Waiters, lawyers, taxi drivers, executives, and small business owners alike wrote to tell me that they found the book helpful, and were now trying out practices from the book, such as structured interviewing and peer recognition, in their organizations. But many of them also told me that they wanted more – more of the nitty gritty, the details, the programs and practices, so they could make change in their workplaces, too”.
“The re:Work website is our response to the community of people who want to make work better around the world. And we don’t want to just talk about Google, because we don’t have all the answers. There are a lot of organizations out there using data to make work better, so re:Work offers a collection of practices, research, and ideas from a variety of organizations and leaders”.
