Zeynep Ton is the author of the Good Jobs Strategy - which holds the honour of being the book I refer to the most when it comes to talking about work. In that book she set about making the case for firms to create good jobs for their employees, not just for the moral reason but because it was a route to faster growth.

effectively studying supply chains and legitimate. that she'd observed that the most profitable organizations that she was


witnessing seemed to be the ones that put employee experience and creating good jobs right at the heart of their strategy.


The book proved to be incredibly influential.


She had a whole load of different retail stores contacting her and in fact she set up the


good jobs institute as a means of trying to scale it, of trying to bring this approach to impact 10 million jobs.


Her new book, The Case for Good Jobs,


goes a stage further.
