9780991173006: Peoplework: How to run a people-first business in a digital-first world

Peoplework is a better way to run a business, by putting people first, in a digital-first world. Access to the distribution of products and services has been commoditized. Technology is ubiquitous. This new people revolution, combined with the impact of the recent digital revolution, provides more people than ever before access to other people. This new people grid, much like the electricity grid before it, brings a tremendous opportunity.
The ten Peoplework principles, as defined in this book, are the blueprint for this unprecedented opportunity in time. Much of this is thanks to recent innovation and a highly digital, constantly connected world around us. Apple products, Google searches, Facebook friends, Twitter hashtags and the many other ways we connect have glued us all together. A new online society exists. Peoplework consists of ten business principles that are timeless, and that clearly define how any business can now work better together with people than ever before. Companies who run their organizations using the Peoplework principles will now have a competitive advantage comparable to the companies who were at the forefront of the industrial and digital revolutions. Digital tools and technologies will be the catalysts and enablers of prosperity for Peoplework businesses. The goal is to laser focus on people, your customers and your employees. The ability to retain a customer, and their lifetime value to your business, has never been higher than it is during the people revolution. The sooner you become a Peoplework business, the more you will gain. Companies profiled in the book include: TaskRabbit, Airbnb, Etsy, Starbucks, Evernote, Zappos, Square and Tom's Shoes. People profiled in the book include: Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey, Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs.

Review:

"PEOPLEWORK is about getting back to basics in this new digital era. Companies must provide personal, human experiences in order to compete better in today's marketplace. PEOPLEWORK shows how, and why, to put people first." --Tony Hsieh, NY Times bestselling author of "Delivering Happiness" and CEO of Zappos.com, Inc.

"Austin and Chris put people first. So will the most successful businesses during the next decade (and beyond). They (and you) should focus on people, not just platforms and pixels." --Gary Vaynerchuk 3-time, NYTimes Bestselling Author

"Austin is a special breed. In less than four years, his startup company has built a platform which is revolutionizing the way residential real estate transactions are done, using digital technology. The tenets he shared in 'Peoplework' are those he has woven into the company's DNA and a major driver of its success. They're also lessons that apply to nearly every other industry in enabling people to work better, together." --Noel Fenton Trinity Ventures
