Google is known around the world as one of the absolute best places to work, and that’s largely thanks to its former Senior Vice President of People Operations, Laszlo Bock. During Bock’s decade-long tenure with the search giant, Google’s workforce grew from 6,000 to over 60,000, and has received over 100 awards honoring the company as an employer of choice. In 2010, Bock was even named “Human Resources Executive of the Year” by HR Executive Magazine. As one of the foremost innovators in the field of people operations, Bock has transformed the way many companies think about their corporate and social culture.
In 2015, Bock’s New York Times Bestseller, Work Rules, was hailed by Forbes as “a true masterpiece.”Drawing on behavioral economics and human psychology, Bock provides teaching examples from a range of industries. He also reveals the secrets behind why Google is consistently rated one of the best places to work, sharing counterintuitive principles that are easy to put into action.
In an IVY Ideas Night, Laszlo shared insights from his new book, and talked about the essentials of good leadership.
