The Opt-out Revolt
Why People Are Leaving Organizations to Create Kaleidoscope CareersBook - 2006
Workers are searching for a life that is richer, more balanced, authentic, and challenging. And when they find that their needs can't be met in the traditional workplace, they are walking away. This book discusses this growing phenomenon: how this universal need drives career and life decisions for women and men alike; the critical role gender plays in the patterns of today's careerists; what choices women are making and why; how men's priorities differ from women's and how they affect their career paths; and what the best organizations are doing to stem the flow of talent heading out the door. With research data from the authors' five-year study, this look at today's workplace profiles hundreds of modern-day trailblazers who have created careers defined by personal needs, life values, and a new 21st-century definition of success, inside and out of traditional corporate boundaries.--From publisher description.
