Being honest about your biggest problems with candidates will excite those who are the right fit for you

Daniel Pink

Best-selling author, including of A Whole New Mind, Drive, and To Sell is Human

Build in time for employees to have complete autonomy over what they work on - a genius hour each week. Think 5%, not 20% of time.

What motivates people at work? Looking back and the end of the day and saying - I got a lot done. I made progress.

Employees like weekly one-on-ones - up to a point. Every 4 weeks shake it up a little - ask about different things like career plans and obstacles they face.

For happiness don't chase happiness, chase meaning!

Johnny Campbell

CEO, Social Talent

The results of real research on organisational design? Not a single company that adopted a commitment model failed. Employers were committed and invested over the long-term to employees and visa versa.

Anne Kelleher

Human Resource Director, Intel

Encourage people to be their full self at work.
