employees, their customers, their communities, and the environment
made more money than 'the bad guys.' Now open your eyes and read
this fascinating book. Amazingly, Bassi, Frauenheim, McMurrer, and

"Good Company sounds an urgent warning: the old ways of
treating customers, employees, and communities are no longer good
enough. Companies that deliver happiness to all their stakeholders
are the ones that will ultimately thrive."
--Tony Hsieh, CEO, Zappos.com, Inc., and New York Times bestselling author of Delivering Happiness "Fascinating and insightful! Good Company persuasively makes the case that those employers that build cultures that value and develop their people will be more successful than their competitors. The authors go much deeper than the traditional HR focus on employee engagement, unveiling a compelling Good Company Index that grades Fortune 100 companies based on whether they're doing the right things for employees, customers, and the environment."
