The purpose of this book is to introduce a concept that, if management execute it capably and sensibly: (1) will cost very little, except time, (2) is virtually guaranteed to improve significantly every single aspect of a business's performance quickly, (3) has a very low risk of failure, and (4) at the same time, is simple and logical. Employee engagement can be the safest, quickest and cheapest way of transforming an organisation, delivering step-changes in efficiency, quality, employee morale and profitability in businesses ranging from local authorities through to the smallest manufacturers. Growing Your Own Heroes is your key to greater organisational prosperity.
