Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Several checkout lines were open and empty, but one had a long line. The customers patiently waited to have their groceries bagged by one special smiling clerk. why? Because Johnny always placed a note with his 'thought of the day' in each shopper's bag."

Humanizing the workplace need not be complex. Small gestures like Johnny's can make a world of difference. In this heartwarming book Barbara Glanz tells you exactly how to bring those little touches that mean so much to the place where you work, whether you are employee or boss. Filled with hundreds of happiness--and morale-boosting suggestions, CARE Packages for the Workplace shows you how to bring caring, communication, and respect to the place where you work.

Format: Paperback
This book was not at all what I expected. As a member of middle management I was looking for suggestions on motivating employees on more of an individual basis. Most of the ideas in this book I felt need to be implemented by upper management throughout the entire organization. As supervisor of a small department, I do not have the resources or authority to implement these types of changes. Also, most of the ideas would only work in businesses with high customer contact. For those of us that work only within the organization, most of these ideas are not applicable.

This book is just okay. There are a lot of examples of how to improve morale at work, but the writing isn't that great, and the book isn't very well organized. There are much better books on the topic...try Managing to Have Fun by Matt Weinstein or 1001 Ways to Energize Employees by Bob Nelson.

I used post-it notes to mark each page that had a good idea that I could implement, and I must have marked over 100 items. This is well worth the money. I am now trying to get Barbara to come to our company and kick start our "Work can be Fun" program.

Format: Paperback
Although the author's heart is in the right place, this book is little more than a collection of often disjointed suggestions for "regenerating spirit at work." Sometimes self-serving, and often sickly sweet (see, for example, the two entire pages devoted to the "Red Plate" -- a special saucer imprinted with the words "You are special today," that the author gives out to her favored clients), reading this book is kind of like chewing a cheap stick of gum -- the flavor just doesn't last.

Companies today are in critical need to retain their best and brightest employees. This book gives you hundreds of creative and actionable ideas. If you put them to work with real sincerity you will have just increased the value of human capital in your organization. If you are busy, or just out of ideas...THIS BOOK is your resource. If YOU TAKE ACTION...this book is worth its weight in gold!!

Barbara Glantz has written a life altering book--at least a life at the workplace altering book. It is easy to read and filled with hundreds of big and little things that can change the way you spend 40 hours a week. Very positive, super ideas.

Organizations that don't think they need this resource are fooling themselves. People are in NEED of humor, fun, and feeling good about the work they do and the workplace in which they do it. This book provides a myriad of ideas that are easy to do! Barbara's message appeals to all personalities. She provides a practical, yet potent approach to workplace CARE. Take the opportunity to attend one of Barbara's presentations. Very refreshing!
