CM300: College Composition II Prof: January Pearson Kaplan University December 4, 2014 By, Heather Leigh Bradley Annotated Bibliography Thesis Statement: The most successful companies are those that are operated by leaders who invest in and grow their employees. Bruce, A., & Pepitone, J. S. (1999). Motivating Employees. New York: McGraw-Hill. “Motivating Employees” is a book about how employee motivation is driven by companies that invest and grow their employees. One of the most important traits of highly effective and successful companies is that employees are happy and have fun at work. Leadership is not assaulting your employees, but to lead your employees you need to motivate by using caring, inspiring, empowering, teaching, growing, investing and your employees will follow and want to contribute. Assaulting as in forcing, criticizing, and bossing your employees around will not only wear them down and unmotivated them but it will exhaust the boss as well. This book is a great resource for my paper because it supports that leaders grow their employees and make them happy. It lists the key traits to successful companies are employee happiness and what tactics these successful companies do to offer employee happiness. Having happy employees means they are productive, motivated, and care about their job. Employee happiness helps grow the success of these companies because it takes a team to get the work done and make a company successful.
