From the Inside Flap
The old way of treating people at work has failed. Only 30% of employees are engaged in their jobs and, in this fast-paced world, that's just not enough.
The world's most successful companies have been quietly doing things differently for nearly two decades. Over that time, they've generated stock market returns of twice the norm and they've had half the employee turnover of their peers. Their staff innovate more, deliver better customer service and beat the competition. These companies outperform and disrupt their markets.
They break the rules of traditional HR. They rebel against the status quo. Build it has found the rebels and the rulebreakers, and shares their best secrets for engaging their people.
"Every company in the world is trying to disrupt itself before it is disrupted by newcomers. Everyone knows why, but most struggle with how. Here is a book bursting with great examples, concrete actions, real success. It'll give you ideas, debates, great arguments and, most of all, hope." MARGARET HEFFERNAN, CEO AND AUTHOR OF WILLFUL BLINDNESS
"Your all-things-necessary guide to employee engagement. You'll learn what engagement really means, why it's so essential, and how to instill it in your workforce. Packed with some terrific case studies, Build it will help you transform your workplace." DANIEL H.PINK, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF DRIVE AND WHEN
"Practical, thoughtful, logical advice and examples for building a high-performance culture. This is a terrific playbook by and for fellow rebels all over the world!" PATTY MCCORD, FORMER CHIEF TALENT OFFICER AT NETFLIX AND AUTHOR OF POWERFUL

Have recommended Build It to my team and think it’s worth a read for anyone interested in Employee Engagement!
Glenn Elliot and Debra Corey build a great picture of how companies of different sizes and in different sectors tackle the increasingly important issue of employee engagement in an easily digestible and understandable format. Really insightful!

So far, I’m about halfway through, and the book does not disappoint. It’s different to many of the other business titles that I’ve read for a couple of reasons:
1) It’s a great mix of both theory and practical examples from people and organisations who have been there, done it and got the scars to prove it.
2) It’s written by two people who have built an extremely successful business by taking the advice they’ve shared in the book. This is tried and tested and it works.
I love the variety of case studies throughout and how there is something for everyone from the ‘quite rebellious’ to ‘off the scale rebel’.
Each chapter does a great job outlining the key things to strive for if you are to make a change in your organisation around a particular layer of The Engagement Bridge, however, I think my favourite thing in each chapter is the section called ‘Making a start’. Change is scary for many of us and this section of the book helps to break that change down into bitesize chunks. It reminds you that you don’t have to do a complete 360 overnight, you just have to start somewhere.
What really brings it to life are the anecdotal examples throughout. If you run a business or manage teams and want to explore best practice in employee engagement you should read this book!
The Rebel Playbook provides the best (and most candid) overview of how businesses need to operate and what they need to do if they are going to truly engage with their people, keep them longer and get the most out of them. It is an easy to read book and something highly recommended if you want to make a difference to your employees and your business.
