Editorial Reviews


"The Elemental Workplace is rooted in Neil's professional experience. Despite this being in large, global corporates, I was pleased to read early in the book that the Elemental Workplace can be achieved at low cost, is far from difficult to achieve, and is attainable. I'm looking forward to using the Elemental Framework and Elemental Standard tools." ―Dr. Anne Marie Rattray, Founder at the Smart Work Company Ltd

"In this meta world where it seems acceptable to remix and repurpose 'knowledge' at will, the wisdom of the past is often forgotten, and the same workplace challenges, bad decisions and mediocre solutions play out like Groundhog Day. With the heart of a leader, the mind of a scholar and the pen of a wordsmith, Neil Usher finally offers something different: a memorable, deceptively simple vision of an Elemental Workplace that draws from his professional learnings. The result? Inspiration and hope for us all, because workplace really does matter." ―Ian Ellison, Workplace Matters podcast host and co-founder of 3edges

"An enlightening read from someone who doesn't just talk about the workplace but has delivered some of the best. Thought-provoking, insightful, jargon-free and entertaining. One for anyone working in the field to keep within arm's reach." ―Mark Simpson, Principal, Chair of Design, Head of Workplace, BDP

"The Elemental Workplace is first and foremost well thought out. It makes sense. It is a plan to tackle a particular problem. I like that approach. Secondly, it is well written. I could even say beautifully written, but the word beautiful is not connected to work in my working class American mind. The Elemental Workplace is funny in the appropriate places, but it is practical in every single paragraph. It is very well organized and constructed, and the ideas are presented in a logical flow that keeps the reader learning, engaged, and moving forward. The book is here. The plan is present. I just hope that workers, managers, and owners throughout the world read it and put it into practice." ―Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite

"Overall, I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to any and all business owners and managers to create a better working space for their employees." ―Reviewed by Kristi Elizabeth for San Francisco Book Review

"The Elemental Workplace is an in-depth look into the several factors both obvious and not-so-obvious that make a workplace successful and sustainable. Why work at a place that is boring and poorly equipped when you can work at a place that makes you happy and ready to work?" ―Manhattan Book Review
