Product description


A powerful, and provocative, blend of case studies, research, and practical implications for making business more personal and personal more humane. - David Burkus, author of Friend of a Friend and Under New Management

The importance of human quality is critical to organizational success. Vlatka's Humane Capital will make a difference for business leaders and organizations. - Subir Chowdhury, best-selling author, CEO of ASI Consulting Group, Thinkers50 management thought leader

Humane Capital is an outstanding read from a management scholar who has worked extensively with leaders and businesses.

Vlatka Hlupic's new book is full of interesting insights and observations. The book will be interesting for all who want to be a successful manager in today's rapidly changing world. - --Oleg Elshin, Nobel Prize nominee, President, CEO at Terra Seismic

Vlatka's contribution pushes an open door in the direction of how the Fourth Industrial Revolution envisions the role of organizations in the 21st century: Maximizing Human Well-Being. The underlying understanding that building organizations around human centered systems is of cardinal importance, is what makes of this book a wonderful journey, entrenched in some of the most emerging organizational theories as well as applications on the nature of firms today. A must read. - Professor Mark Esposito, Professor of Business and Economics, Harvard University's Division of Continuing Education, an Institutes Council co-leader at the Microeconomics of Competitiveness program at Harvard Business School

How do you humanize an organization where employees are passionate to work? How do you build a high-performance culture that combines profits and principles? Using dozens of engaging case studies, Vlatka addresses these critical questions in this excellent book. - Professor Sunil Gupta, the Edward W. Carter Professor of Business Administration and Chair of the General Management Program at Harvard Business School

This is a timely book - engagement levels remain stubbornly low - a crushing waste of human potential. This passionate book seeks to address this problem and to create work places which are life affirming. The argument is enriched with lively case studies and interview material. It deserves to be widely read. - Professor Gareth Jones, Visiting Professor IE Business School, Madrid, Fellow at London Business School

Rich with case studies and stories, Vlatka deftly details the critical importance of a humane and purpose-driven workplace. - --Dan Pontefract, Author of Open to Think, The Purpose Effect and Flat Army, and Chief Envisioner of TELUS.

Vlatka gives guidance with inspiring examples on how and why we need to transform and shift our traditional business by embracing a holistic perspective. - Alfred Tolle, Former Director at Google, CEO of Wisdom Together e.V. a non-profit association registered in Germany

Vlatka had studied an incredible list of 'humane' companies and distilled the practices that more fully engage employees. These are incredible cases and even better insights that can be adapted to any organization. This book reinforces the importance of taking care of people who will take care of customers and others. Very well done! - --Dave Ulrich, Professor of business at the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, co-founder of The RBL Group, Wall Street Journal Business Best-selling author (The Why of Work), Lifetime Achievement Award recipient from HR Magazine, in Thinke
