WATCH: Author Ron Friedman on Good Day New York

New York News

Social Psychologist and the author of The Best Place to Work Dr. Ron Friedman appeared on FOX’s “Good Day New York” to discuss modern workplace culture and companies that are breaking the mold. Dr. Friedman spoke with business reporter Alison Morris on how companies are truly giving their employees an environment to thrive in. According to Dr. Friedman’s research, our environment has a profound impact on the way that we think. When we're given an environment that helps us do our work, we're a lot more impactful in the work that we do. A few of the companies spotlighted include Silverline, which promotes happy hours on the job and ping-pong and shuffleboard tables in the office, Etsy, where new hires receive $100 gift cards towards decorating their workspace, and Starwood Hotels, which just launched Starlab, an innovative and collaborative new work space.

Thank you for your excellent work promoting our book, Vital Factors - The Secret To Transforming Your Business and Your Life. As you are aware, Vital Factors was our first book and we were novices at the fundamentals of promoting a business book. Our decision to work with your firm was based upon your extensive experience promoting business books and we are not disappointed. I sincerely appreciated your consistent coaching and advice as we executed the book campaign. This spirit of teamwork and collaboration made a difference. We learned a great deal about promoting a book and we can also apply many of these principles to future PR efforts. Your weekly updates kept our eye on the ball as we moved the campaign forward. I will continue to recommend you and your firm to business associates who want to gain national exposure for their books.
