ARE WORKERS HUMAN? by Gordon Rattray Taylor


Email this review


Yes, workers are human and here is a keen analysis of the thoughts and emotions of people at work. It is full of good common sense counsel on how to deal with workers to get the best out of them. It is not so much a book on efficiency, but the way to achieve satisfaction for the worker as well as the employer. Although most of the examples are from experiences in English factories, since the author is an Englishman, many are from the United States and he has caught the feeling and attitudes of workers in a democratic state whether it be socialist or capitalist. He discusses leadership, the individual, the group, morale, strikes, the place of the worker in society, the psychological forces linking employee and employer, management. A practical, profitable demonstration of personnel problems for those concerned.
