Corporate Crap: Lessons Learned from 40 Years in Corporate America takes a humorous look at the business practices that lead employees to look for new employment…like meetings, performance reviews, downsizing, and bosses from hell; dress codes, task forces, brainstorming, and engagement surveys; flip charts, org charts, hard stops, and hard-ons. It seeks to answer the burning question: If companies truly believe employees are their most valuable resource, why do they treat them like crap?
In Corporate Crap, readers will learn:
- How companies are trying to shorten meetings by making everyone stand and other forms of torture.
- How the author burned his first professional bridge in his first-ever exit interview.
- Why 700 million vacation days went unused last year. (What is wrong with you people?)
- Why companies don’t call employees “employees” anymore – and how it can backfire on them.
- Why companies’ obsession with labeling employees as introverts or extroverts is a complete waste of time.
- Why the idea that “no idea is a bad idea” is a bad idea.
- What people really do during conference calls.
Beyond the humor, there is an important message here. Companies invest enormous resources to improve their “corporate cultures,” yet employees are as cynical as ever. Enjoy these lessons learned – lessons from 40 years of Corporate Crap.
