In Great Company
Triage Consulting Group Unlocks the Secrets of Great Places to Work
In Great Company: Triage Consulting Group Unlocks the Secrets of Great Places to Work, by Patti Lee-Hoffmann, co-founder of Triage, recently released. The book profiles 11 companies engaged in businesses hardest hit by the Great Recession, yet are thriving. From advertising to organic food and from construction to outdoor furniture, no two companies are in the same industry, yet they all share common traits. From hundreds of face to face interviews of company founders to line employees, Lee-Hoffmann shares story after story of these traits in action.
“Businesses often share the mistaken belief that being a great place to work costs more than it’s worth – that it’s a net drain to the bottom line. In the experience of the 11 great companies in this book, nothing could be further from the truth”, says Lee-Hoffmann.
In Great Company profiles these great companies: Graniterock, Farella Braun + Martel, Bridge Worldwide, Juniper Networks, Veritable Vegetable, Jackson’s Hardware, Triage Consulting Group, EILEEN FISHER, Landscape Forms, Lincoln Industries, and Badger Mining Corporation.
