Bill Catlette is a human resources consultant with almost 3 decades of experience helping to build highly successful organizations. He is the co-author of Contented Cows Give Better Milk: The Plain Truth About Employee Relations and Your Bottom Line.
Whether in heavy manufacturing, distribution, retail, services, high-tech, or professional sports, it is no accident that the organizations consistently identified as winners in their chosen field happen to be some of the best places to work. This occurs as a vital, premeditated element of business strategy. As the basis for Contented Cows Give Better Milk, Bill Catlette and his partner, Richard Hadden, analyzed the ten-year financial performance of six organizations with reputations as great places to work, and compared it to the performance of six of their competitors. The results were astounding, and bear out a premise that would doubtless be echoed by generations of dairy farmers..."Contented Cows Give Better Milk!"
When speaking about Contented Cows, Bill Catlette explodes many of the myths about employee relations, including those based on the notion that "more is better," and offers practical advice for transforming any workforce, be it in a Fortune 500 or a start-up, into a lethal competitive weapon.
