Excellent guide - the future is Purple.,
This review is from: Purple Your People: The Secrets to Inspired, Happy, More Profitable People (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)I had no experience with motivating staff, or personnel issues and bought this purely to get the latest information on staff care. I found it really interesting, and while much is common sense, there are some pearls of wisdom in there. I have been horrified over the years when working for companies who don't care about staff retention or staff happiness - yet proudly trumpet - "our people are our business". One manager happily announced that 75 people had left his department in the year he had been working there (half his workforce).. with recruitment and retraining costs topping £5,000 per person that was a huge below the line cost - and he didn't get fired!
This book should be essential reading for anyone supervising staff - and any company owners wondering why their staff turnover is so high. And in these recession conscious times hopefully people will learn that keeping staff happy and productive is the best and most cost effective thing you can do for the health of your business.

Mimi, thank you for your review and I'm pleased you found the book useful. Your example of the manager losing half his workforce, at massive expense, and no-one blinking an eye is unfortunately not a rare occurrence. In fact this was one of the reasons we founded learnpurple - retaining and engaging your people is a much most cost effective way to run your business. If you haven't already registered your book through the Purple your People website, please do - you may find some of the downloadable content useful. Thank you again.
