This CORD publication, Understanding the Filipino Worker and Organization, which is now on its second edition, excites me the most. A look at the Table of Contents, will immadiately explain why.The book's topics such as recruitment, worker motivation, productive work behaviors and attitudes, etc. answer basic questions I've been struggling with. The book also has a Special Topics section that discusses 21st challenges every Filipino company with global aspirations must know. For instance, Filipino hire millenials whose values and aspirations are very different from those of baby boomers who are usually the leaders. Leaders must confront the challenge of managing and increasingly multi-generational ang multi-cultural workforce.
