Hitting the beach this summer and looking for some good reading? Why not try “The Wisdom of Bees: What the Hive Can Teach Business About Leadership, Efficiency, and Growth” by social psychologist Michael O’Malley (he’s also the editor of the Yale University Press and a longtime bee-keeper.) It may sound a little weird, but you’ll feel differently after reading an interview with the author from Workforce.com.

O’Malley proposes that bees can teach us many best practices, especially when it comes to:

Retention rates and turnover

Stress and productivity


Managing a multi-generational workforce
