Work and Rewards: Redefining Our Work-Life Reality

Synopsis

This innovative book examines the nature of work and reward, and the place each has in today's society. The author examines why so many people feel "trapped" in the workplace today, and develops a framework that can be used to improve life both in and out of the workplace. The author states that the current definition of work today is sacrifice' and the reward is frequently money. He argues that employees also need access to such things as truth, good, beauty, and power. Concentration on the work ethic will give way to the development ethic which minimizes sacrifice and maximizes development through the use of technology and the structuring of our value system.
