內容簡介

一部對於當代職場與工作全面的血淚調查
「人為財死」──為了那份所謂工作與薪水,我們究竟付出了多少?
 
  曾有調查指出,61%的職場工作人曾有因壓力而生病不適的經驗,而其中有7%的人甚至曾因此住院。在美國,每年因職場壓力而產生的公司開銷高達3千億美金,並可能直接間接地促成12萬人的死亡。在中國,每年則可能有高達一百萬人因為超量工作而死亡。這些數據或許難以被準確估量,但當「過勞」已是當代各國共通的社會現象,本書志在揭露這些現象的嚴重性,並提供對應的改善辦法。
 
  過長的工時、面對工作與家庭的兩方責任夾擊、經濟的壓力與不安全感,都是職場人面對的常見困境──降低工作的投入程度、提高人員流動率、傷害職員的身心健康──同時也減損了企業的表現。作者強調人才、人力的延續性的重要性,就如今日我們重視環境永續一般不可或缺,但如今的企業管理方法不僅沒有珍視員工為核心資產,也不可能提升產能,只會帶來一個全面皆輸的局面。
 
  任職於史丹佛商學院的作者Jeffrey Pfeffer,運用自身在組織行為領域的專業,透過豐富材料,引領讀者探索當代職場的各方面──從資遣、健康保險、家庭與工作關係、工時、工作自主性,與人們為什麼會持續留在對自己有害的職場中。為「工作」,這當代生活無可避免的一環,提供寫實而驚悚的描繪。不過他也提供員工、雇主以及政府對應的實用改變指引,從此展開一場革命,一同改善職場健康,正視「人」的永續發展。是處於當代的所有人,都能從之有所收穫,並起身改變的一本及時之作。
 
  「本書無疑是這十年來我讀過最重要的一本商業書。正如Pfeffer鋒利地分析指出,人與企業組織的關係已經徹底崩壞。他提供了各種解方,本書將開啟一場革命。」─Tom Rath,暢銷書《STRENGTHSFINDER 2.0》作者

  In one survey, 61 percent of employees said that workplace stress had made them sick and 7 percent said they had actually been hospitalized. Job stress costs US employers more than $300 billion annually and may cause 120,000 excess deaths each year. In China, 1 million people a year may be dying from overwork.  People are literally dying for a paycheck. And it needs to stop.
 
  In this timely, provocative book, Jeffrey Pfeffer contends that many modern management commonalities such as long work hours, work-family conflict, and economic insecurity are toxic to employees—hurting engagement, increasing turnover, and destroying people’s physical and emotional health—and also inimical to company performance.  He argues that human sustainability should be as important as environmental stewardship.
 
  You don’t have to do a physically dangerous job to confront a health-destroying, possibly life-threatening, workplace. Just ask the manager in a senior finance role whose immense workload, once handled by several employees, required frequent all-nighters—leading to alcohol and drug addiction. Or the dedicated news media producer whose commitment to getting the story resulted in a sixty-pound weight gain thanks to having no down time to eat properly or exercise. Or the marketing professional prescribed antidepressants a week after joining her employer.
 
  In Dying for a Paycheck, Jeffrey Pfeffer marshals a vast trove of evidence and numerous examples from all over the world to expose the infuriating truth about modern work life: even as organizations allow management practices that literally sicken and kill their employees, those policies do not enhance productivity or the bottom line, thereby creating a lose-lose situation.
 
  Exploring a range of important topics including layoffs, health insurance, work-family conflict, work hours, job autonomy, and why people remain in toxic environments, Pfeffer offers guidance and practical solutions all of us—employees, employers, and the government—can use to enhance workplace wellbeing. We must wake up to the dangers and enormous costs of today’s workplace, Pfeffer argues. Dying for a Paycheck is a clarion call for a social movement focused on human sustainability. Pfeffer makes clear that the environment we work in is just as important as the one we live in, and with this urgent book, he opens our eyes and shows how we can make our workplaces healthier and better.
 
Review
 
  “In this urgent and essential book, Pfeffer lays bare the hidden costs of the gig economy, employment instability, and many modern management practices. If you’ve got a job, you must read this book.” (Laszlo Bock, CEO and Co-Founder of Humu & author of Work Rules!)
 
  “This is simply the most important business book I have read in a decade. As Pfeffer’s sharp analysis points out, the relationship between people and organizations is flat-out broken. Offering a range of solutions, Dying for a Paycheck will start a revolution.” (Tom Rath, author of STRENGTHSFINDER 2.0.)
 
  “This profound book on personal well-being and organizational work environments should change how work is done and literally save lives.  Using Pfeffer’s insights, employees can take responsibility for their physical and mental health and leaders can create abundant organizations that win.” (Dave Ulrich, Rensis Likert Professor, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan)
 
  “With precision and insight, Pfeffer lays bare the true cost of toxic workplaces, providing a timely wakeup call for any leader who thought a good workplace was simply a ‘nice to have’. As Pfeffer shows, it is a fundamental right in our fast changing society. Dying for a Paycheck is an essential book from one of our greatest organizational scholars.” (Professor Lynda Gratton, author of the The 100-Year Life: living and working in an age of longevity)
 
  “Pfeffer examines the heretofore uncharted relationship between dysfunctional workplace practices and employee health.  Dying for a Paycheck is a compelling and important read for all of us seeking to produce a healthy and engaged organization.” (Gary Loveman, former CEO, Caesars Entertainment and former president of Consumer and Health Services, Aetna)
