"How can companies recruit, retain, train, motivate, and reward great employees--especially in a tight labor market? How can they win new customers and boost sales? The secret is to lighten up and get a little weird! Creativity and productivity can go hand in hand, as this chock-full-of-ideas book amply shows. Like a Christmas stocking crammed with treasures, Get Weird! overflows with irresistible techniques for innovating and problem-solving. It explains how to start thinking ""outside the box,"" then presents 101 adaptable ideas, each in a reader-friendly two pages or fewer. For instance, readers will learn about: * Whaddya Know? (learning through puzzles, quizzes, and games) * Hire-Times (post-interview fun--a night-on-the-town with host employees) * Wall of Fame (display of individual successes) * Rock Me, Baby (give techies and GenXers the rock-concert tickets they crave) * Galloping Gourmets (take-home gourmet dinners for employees and their family).
