THE BRAIN-FRIENDLY WORKPLACE: Why Talented People Quit and How to Get Them to Stay | Friederike Fabritius, Roman, Littlefield Publishers, (2022), 248p.
In "The Brain-Friendly Workplace: Why Talented People Quit and How to Get Them to Stay," Friederike Fabritius, a neuroscientist, explores the factors that drive talented employees to leave their organizations and presents practical solutions to create work environments that foster talent retention and employee satisfaction.
Her findings are grouped into Safety and Trust, Reward and Motivation, Emotional Intelligence, Social Connectivity, and Focus and Attention.
Underlying the commonsense recommendations, Fabritius emphasizes the understanding that the unique individual neuro signature will help managers. Every branch of science, including neuroscience, reinforces that everyone is inherently diverse and represents uniqueness. A company’s enhanced ability to adapt and accommodate those differences can fuel greater productivity and outcomes, argues the author.
As management or science goes, this book is not rocket science. It’s written for a general audience and reinforces the common sense practices in circulation today.
