I don’t think it has to be this way, and I’m willing to bet you don’t either.
At Google, we’ve learned a ton about what makes for an enjoyable and productive workplace. We’re not alone – lots of other companies, ranging from Bangladeshi garment factories to Brooklyn delis, as well as academic researchers, have learned the same simple truth: there are straightforward things we can do to make work better.
My new book, Work Rules!, is an attempt to bring this together and offer you practical tools to improve work, no matter what you do.
If that resonates with you, I invite you to grab a book and join me on this journey toward better work for all. Copies are now available at www.workrules.net #workrules #google #work #hr
WORK RULES! named as Inc. "best business book" of 2015, and great quote:
"Larry and Sergey had ambitions beyond developing a great search engine. They started out knowing how they wanted people to be treated. Quixotic as it sounds, they both wanted to create a company where work was meaningful, employees felt free to pursue their passions, and people and their families were cared for. Many of the most meaningful, beloved, and effective people practices at Google sprouted from seeds planted by Larry and Sergey. Our weekly all-employee meetings started when 'all' of us amounted to just a handful of people, and continue to this day even though we're now the size of a respectable city."

And, I think Lorne's brother-in-law (and my friend), , is clearly overdue for a rhytidectomy after his many dog-years at Google (chronicled in his recent book, "How Google Works"). ;)
Dr. Rosenfield has already proven to push the learning curve with technology by performing the first plastic surgery procedure with Glass - an eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) performed in combination with a facelift procedure. He is not only helping patients but helping Google improve the technology by shedding light on the challenges for future refinement, including the limited resolution of the video camera, technical difficulties in streaming from an operating room and the need for the surgeon to keep the head in a fixed position.
A collaboration between , Google and the research community made the cover of magazine with the results from the largest ever autism genome study, MSSNG. Along with this publication, this collaboration is making the anonymized data freely available on for global research.
Led by Google Engineering Director , Autism Speaks Chief Science Officer and SickKids Hospital and University of Toronto Professor Stephen Scherer, MSSNG hopes to speed understanding of autism by enabling ‘open science’ for researchers around the world through collaborative access to data and web-based analytic tools.
