Overview

"This is like TiVo for your work." -BusinessWeek

In a results-only workplace, employees can do whatever they want whenever they want, as long as the work gets done. No more pointless meetings, racing to get in at 9:00, or begging for permission to watch your kid play soccer. You make the decisions about what you do and where you do it.

It sounds like a fantasy, but Cali Ressler and Jody Thompson are leading a movement to make it a reality, even implementing it successfully at best buy. They show how a Results-Only Work Environment not only makes employees happier, but also delivers better results.

Filled with passion and common sense, their book will change the way you think about your job, your company, and your quality of life.

Editorial Reviews

Minneapolis StarTribune
“It is a fundamental shift away from ‘face time’ or ‘chair time’ to just one consideration: Did the employee get the job done?”
BusinessWeek
“This is like TiVo for your work.”
Time
“The freedom, employees say, is changing their lives. They don’t know if they work fewer hours—they’ve stopped counting—but they are more productive.”
