In Happywork, Chris Reimer introduces an ambitious, professional consultant named Sam, who specializes in company turnarounds. Sam succeeds by "compartmentalizing people, streamlining processes, and creating systems of control." He wastes no energy worrying about human emotions--he gets results. Drawn into an urgent assignment at Vunorri, Inc., a manufacturing company facing foreclosure, Sam's confident spirit is suddenly shaken. A career quiz from an unlikely source, impossible employees, and scandalous dealings at Vunorri cast doubt on Sam's qualifications and test his ability to perform. Against the suspense-building backdrop of a 30-day bank deadline, Reimer reveals a truth many people ignore--unhappiness at work hurts employees and employers. The colorful characters and practical advice comprise a thoughtprovoking piece of revolutionary motivation for corporate America. Delivered with wit and packed with profound sentiment, Happywork offers you truth--the way we work is broken, our priorities are out of order, and now is the time for colossal change. Apply these simple methods immediately, and experience a better work environment and life today.
