The title of this blog post may sound familiar to you. “Let’s Make Work Better” is actually the slogan of the new website that provides tools and resources to help people copy Google’s style.
We should expect more from work. People spend more hours working than anything else. But for too many, work isn’t fulfilling, inspiring, or anything more than a means to an end. – The Google re:Work team
The re:Work website is our response to the community of people who want to make work better around the world. And we don’t want to just talk about Google, because we don’t have all the answers. There are a lot of organizations out there using data to make work better, so re:Work offers a collection of practices, research, and ideas from a variety of organizations and leaders. – Laszlo Bock, SVP, People Operations at Google and author of WORK RULES!
Google created this website as a curated platform of practices, research, and ideas from Google and others; it’s designed to help you use data and science to make work better, no matter where you call work.
- Browse by subjects to delve into a particular topic such as hiring or managing
- Explore guides for actionable tools and ideas
- Check out the blog to hear from business leaders and academics
- Read the case studies for an inside look at how organizations are making work better
We’ll never be able to cover everything, but we’re starting with some of the most proven practices and we’ll add new content over time. We’re not the first to innovate in this space, and we certainly don’t have all the answers. But by sharing what we’ve learned, we hope other organizations will be inspired to do the same.
We can’t make work better alone. Changing work starts with you. We hope you’ll try some of these tools and ideas, and when you do, we want to hear what works and what doesn’t. We’re also looking for proven people practices that other organizations have used (based on science and evaluated with data, of course!) and would love suggestions on where to find more of them. Please tell the world how you’re using data to #makeworkbetter. Now let’s get to work!
