<p><b>Praise for WORK <i>here</i> NOW</b> <p>“The pandemic upended the world of work and revealed that we could work effectively in entirely new ways. But how can organizations harness these new ways of working to properly shape the workplace of the future? Lucky for them, <i>Work Here Now</i> is a practical toolkit for how to transform the everyday colleague experience—and soar to new business heights in the process.” <p><b>—Martine Ferland,</b> President and CEO, Mercer <p>“Melissa Swift boldly interrogates how and why we work—and how we can improve organizational performance. With a clear voice and a persuasive call to action, Swift explains how we must rethink key elements of the People model and offers actionable strategies to fix the gaps. Recognizing that talent acquisition is the backbone of the talent cycle, she stresses that the need for true curiosity about the role and the candidates, will make our teams work better. We must resist the temptation to ‘clone’ job descriptions for new roles and tap into the business’s greater strategy to innovate. A necessary read for any leader rethinking how we’ll work together in a post-COVID world.” <p><b>—Steve Potter,</b> CEO and Managing Partner, Odgers Berndtson LLC <p>“Work has changed seismically over the last few years, and Melissa Swift provides a compelling account of the changes organizations might make to adapt and thrive as the workplace continues to be turned upside-down. Whether you’re seeking to make bold shifts across your organization to attract and retain the talent you crave, or small-but-mighty alterations to make your team happier and more productive, Swift supplies paths to action backed by humanity and data alike.” <p><b>—Alex Triantis, </b>Dean, Johns Hopkins Carey Business School <p>“Melissa Swift knows what she’s talking about, and she talks about it well. I’m delighted that she’s been able to maintain her clear, down-to-earth voice even as she switched from talking to writing. This book has important ideas and interesting examples. Plus, it’s just fun to read. I recommend it highly for people at all levels who care about making work work for workers.” <p><b>—George Westerman,</b> Senior Lecturer, MIT Sloan School of Management and Founder, Global Opportunity Initiative <p>“Today’s most meaningful innovations are consistently produced by high performing teams who can successfully reduce their amount of problematic work, to create adequate space for focus, flow, and creativity. COVID has provided us with a once-in-a-generation opportunity to redefine the future of work. And getting it right is, in some cases, literally a matter of life and death. <i>Work Here Now</i> provides us a useful taxonomy for classifying problematic work, and pairs it with strategies you can employ right away to reduce or eliminate that work entirely—all written by Melissa Swift in an accessible and fun way that is anything but ‘work’ to read.” <p><b>—Michael Walker,</b> Senior Director and Global Lead, Red Hat Open Innovation Labs
