Rise engineers build a lot of amazing things, but as of yet, they’ve failed to turn out a time-traveling Delorean. There’s no sign of it on the product road map either, despite repeated requests.
That’s problematic, given how much we write about the future workplace at Rise. Fortunately, there’s another way to preview the coming decades and get prepared: good old-fashioned research.
We’ve spent the last few months eyeball-deep in the latest findings from top academics, wading through stats and abstracts to find out how HR is changing. Then we interviewed some of the foremost thought leaders in the field, like Jacob Morgan, Rocky Ozaki, and Sara Sutton Fell. After all of that, we feel confident saying that to glimpse the future of HR, you don’t need a plutonium-powered sports car.
This full-length book, the first ever from Rise, is as good as any time machine.

- Aligning people and culture strategies with business goals

Take the tour
150 plus pages take you on a sightseeing tour of the future workplace—one where the employee experience is king and every office has an herb garden. Here, nine-to-five no longer exists and referral programs are about more than reward and recognition.
But it’s also a place where introverts are forgotten, productivity falls, and creativity suffers. The future workplace holds a lot of promise … but also presents a myriad of issues. Ones that, to be frank, didn’t exist in offices of old.
Enter a new age of HR. We know you got into this field because you’re passionate about company culture, the work of team and tribe-building. But for much too long, your time has been monopolized by administrivia: the red tape and whistle-blowing that people think make up the majority of HR’s work.
Now’s your moment to show them how wrong they are.
Every HR manager we know is passionate about the people they work with and the company culture they hope to create. And finally, businesses are beginning to realize how mission critical that function is, to allocate time and resources to culture-building and the people who make it possible.
Because of that, even the problems posed by the future workplace are exciting for the modern people and culture pro. Now, you can flex your skills, explore those passions, and get back to what made you interested in HR to begin with: people.
Still, you don’t have to do it alone … and that’s where this book comes in.

And no, the answer isn’t just to buy the Rise People & Culture Platform. (Although, let’s be honest, we think that will help.) This book isn’t about self-promotion—it’s part of powering the workplace revolution, a cause close to our hearts.
And one that we’re guessing is close to yours as well.
