Book Summary
In Bring Work to Life by Bringing Life to Work, work environment sociologist Tracy Brower draws on her years of experience with hundreds of companies to explore the integration of work and life, and how this integration can benefit company profits and efficiency. Brower notes that company leaders must learn to implement work-life supports correctly in order to create a work environment that supports the whole person. When workers are fulfilled and happy at work, they remain with the company, are more productive, and are less likely to be absent. This translates into positive results for companies, which in turn has a positive effect on society as a whole.
