About the Author
Jeffery Pfeffer is the Thomas D. Dee II Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University, where he has taught since 1979. He is the author or co-author of thirteen books, and he has held visiting professorships at the Harvard Business School, London Business School, IESE Business School in Spain, and other institutions.
"This profound book on personal well-being and organizational work environments should change how work is done and literally save lives. Using Pfeffer's insights, employees can take responsibility for their physical and mental health and leaders can create abundant organizations that win."--Dave Ulrich, Rensis Likert Professor, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan
"In this urgent and essential book, Pfeffer lays bare the hidden costs of the gig economy, employment instability, and many modern management practices. If you've got a job, you must read this book."--Laszlo Bock, CEO and Co-Founder of Humu & author of Work Rules!
"With precision and insight, Pfeffer lays bare the true cost of toxic workplaces, providing a timely wakeup call for any leader who thought a good workplace was simply a 'nice to have'. As Pfeffer shows, it is a fundamental right in our fast changing society. Dying for a Paycheck is an essential book from one of our greatest organizational scholars."--Professor Lynda Gratton, author of the The 100-Year Life: living and working in an age of longevity
"This is simply the most important business book I have read in a decade. As Pfeffer's sharp analysis points out, the relationship between people and organizations is flat-out broken. Offering a range of solutions, Dying for a Paycheck will start a revolution."--Tom Rath, author of STRENGTHSFINDER 2.0.
"Pfeffer examines the heretofore uncharted relationship between dysfunctional workplace practices and employee health. Dying for a Paycheck is a compelling and important read for all of us seeking to produce a healthy and engaged organization."--Gary Loveman, former CEO, Caesars Entertainment and former president of Consumer and Health Services, Aetna
