“Bob and Raj beautifully illustrate the important intersection of business and the true essence of the human spirit. One company, one employee at a time, Barry-Wehmiller is changing the world—and the world of business. If this model can be successful in manufacturing, it can be successful anywhere!”
Kip Tindell, chairman and CEO, The Container Store
“Is it possible to run a successful business without treating people like numbers? Can a corporate culture of mistrust and insecurity be transformed into one of caring and fulfillment? Everybody Matters answers these questions with an enthusiastic ‘Yes!’…”
Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human and Drive
Starting in 1997, Bob Chapman and Barry-Wehmiller have pioneered a dramatically different approach to leadership that creates off-the-charts morale, loyalty, creativity, and business performance. The company utterly rejects the idea that employees are simply functions to be moved around, “managed” with carrots and sticks or discarded at will. Instead, Barry-Wehmiller manifests the reality that every single person matters, just like in a family. That’s not a cliché on a mission statement; it’s the bedrock of the company’s success.
Everybody Matters, a Wall Street Journal bestseller, chronicles Chapman’s journey to find his true calling, going behind the scenes as his team tackles real-world challenges with care, empathy, and inspiration. It also provides clear steps to transform your own workplace, whether you lead two people or two hundred thousand.
All Barry-Wehmiller proceeds from Everybody Matters are donated to Our Community LISTENS, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing BW’s powerful listening and communication skills training to communities throughout the United States.
