Power your business culture with strong workplace relationships--and watch productivity and profitability soar

For years, companies have been implementing programs that promote social responsibility and improve employee health, both of which benefit the financial bottom line. Now it's time to focus on positive social interactions and relationships in the workplace. Why? Research shows that authentic, trust-based relationships increase job satisfaction, engagement, productivity, and retention--and even decreased healthcare costs.

In Work Better Together, two experts from Deloitte explain how working remotely, over-relying on digital communication, and always being "on" is fast-increasing feelings of isolation and burnout--and how a work culture driven by quality relationships can reverse these trends. The authors show how to cultivate positive relationships by:

  • Focusing on self-care, such as physical health, quality sleep, and taking time off
  • Tapping into human skills, such as empathy, authenticity, and communication
  • Using technology with intentionality to strengthen relationships, while breaking the negative habits technology fosters
  • Managing workplace relationships, whether you're in the office every day or telecommuting--or something in between
  • Developing a culture of strong relationships that drive quality collaboration throughout the organization
Work Better Together walks you through the process of implementing change and fueling a much-needed corporate movement towards humanity in the workplace. Based on the authors' 40+ combined years of experience, it helps you meet today's employees' most urgent needs, while benefitting your organization in real and measurable ways.
