The newest book from The Workforce Institute, Being Present: A Practical Guide for Transforming the Employee Experience of Your Frontline Workforce, is a rich collection of guiding ideas, advice, and best practices focused on improving people’s lives at work, specifically the lives of frontline workers.

Challenging yesterday’s mindset while strategically looking at the future of work, this book offers eye-opening insights on the positive outcomes for employers who invest in their workers’ experience. Written by some of today’s most respected leaders and practitioners in human resources, workplace technology, and the future of work, the authors share new ways to create and build frontline workplace capability, productivity, performance, empowerment, and trust.
