Publisher's Summary

On Fire at Work flies in the face of other books on workplace culture by showing that employee engagement isn't the ultimate goal - it's merely the starting point. Renowned leadership expert Eric Chester has gone straight to the source - top-tier leaders of the world's best places to work to uncover their best-practice strategies for getting employees to work harder, perform better, and stay longer. On Fire at Work features examples and original stories from exclusive personal interviews with over 25 founders/CEOs/presidents of companies like Marriott, Siemens, BB&T Bank, Wegmans, 7-Eleven, Hormel, Canadian WestJet, Ben & Jerry's, and The Container Store, along with smaller companies like Firehouse Subs, the Nerdery, and Build-A-Bear. The guiding principle is that any organization in any industry - from Fortune 500 firms to mom-and-pop shops - can learn how to bring out the very best in their employees.

The book's content-rich research and conversational case study-based narrative make it a timely, actionable go-to reference on employee performance and productivity for C-level execs, corporate and government managers, HR professionals, and small business owners.

On Fire at Work is a practical field guide that any organization can implement to build, not an engaged workforce, but a workforce that's on fire!

Chester hits the nail on the head

If you could sum up On Fire at Work in three words, what would they be?

I saw Eric Chester recently at a conference and he reviewed this book with us. It was so informative, innovative, and practical. I would strongly recomend to any business owner or manager. He really shares dynamic, out of the box approaches to what make our employees want to work hard for us.
