Values Shift
The New Work Ethic & What it Means for Business
by John Izzo and Pam Withers

Praise for this title is rampant– Published in 2000 this book was ahead of its time! Values Shift is in its 10th printing and making serious statements of the status of our North American Corporate Culture. Post Enron, WorldCom and of course, Martha Stuart, North Americans are taking a good hard look at the purpose of why they work for their companies.

A new work ethic is emerging—a new set of values about work and its place in our lives. These new values will re-shape how we operate and what companies must do to attract and keep good people. While work has changed dramatically over the last two decades, a new practical business book from Fairwinds Press argues that our values around work have also changed in ways that will impact businesses for decades to come.

In this groundbreaking book called Values Shift: The New Work Ethic & What it Means for Business, authors John B. Izzo and Pam Withers identify how our values about work are changing and how this new work ethic is impacting companies as they try to attract and keep talent. These values, according to Izzo, will require employers to focus on creating workplaces that respond to a shifting set of wants and desires. “How we see work and what we want from it is shifting radically and smart companies will pay attention to these changes,” says Izzo.
The new work ethic is defined by six major expectations at work that cut across three generations—Baby Boomers, Generation X-ers and the Net Generation. Izzo is an international consultant and speaker on managing change and leadership development, who, through his work and research, has discovered that while all three generations have some unique perspectives, they have a lot more in common than we realize in terms of the six emerging expectations of the workplace:

  • Balance and synergy

  • Work as a noble cause

  • Personal growth and development

  • Partnership

  • Community at work

  • Trust
