The employer-employee relationship is broken. Managers face a seemingly impossible dilemma: You can’t afford to offer lifetime employment. But you canít build a lasting, innovative business when everyone acts like a free agent.
The solution: Stop thinking of employees as family or free agents, and start thinking of them as allies on a tour of duty.
The Alliance teaches managers how to recruit, manage, and retain the entrepreneurial employees your business needs to succeed in the networked age.
“The must-read book of the summer… The Alliance shows how the workplace has changed in recent decades, and how these changes have broken down in the trust in the relationship between employers and employees, to everyone’s detriment. And then it shows a way forward so that all benefit.”
