Judith’s book is full of fascinating insights into how great companies function and what makes them employers of choice. I felt as if I was being allowed access to ‘behind closed doors’ of a number of organisations and the experience left me thinking I really want to share these ideas with colleagues with a view revisiting ‘how we do things round here’. It’s a book I can really use. Caroline Holmes, Senior HR Business Partner, HBOS.
Judith wrote Becoming an Employer of Choice in 2004 after working on the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For list. in 2002 and then researching a range of the companies. Talking to everyone from the cleaner to the CEO she asked ‘what is it like to work here?’. Using copious stories of the real people she met, Judith takes us through the essential behaviours that lead to being an Employer of Choice organisation.
Highly practical, the book gives you action steps at the end of each chapter and ideas to pinch throughout the text. Committed to the concept of people doing their best work when they feel respected, valued and happy, Judith encourages the reader to take a risk, get together with other people and enjoy work!
