Most entrepreneurs and executives would like their employees to feel engaged in the business, to go the extra mile, to think and act like owners. But they aren’t sure how to create such an environment.
That’s where Partners on the Payroll comes in. In this short but powerful book, veteran business coach Bill Fotsch shows how any business can transform its employees into full-scale partners—people who understand the business and work together to improve its performance.
Fotsch, who has worked with more than four hundred companies over the years, begins with a simple argument: our free-enterprise society needs partnership to overcome the divisions that threaten it. He then takes the reader step-by-step through the process of creating a partnership company, illustrating his points with fascinating stories of businesses, both large and small, that have transformed themselves.
Readable and hard-hitting, this is the book for any owner or manager who wants to build not just a better business but a better world.

Fotsch puts forward an interesting response to younger generations' discontent with capitalism. Fix capitalism, as opposed to dismissing it in favor of socialism or another economic system, so that it works for all stakeholders as opposed to those at the top only. Fotsch makes compelling arguments about why this would work, and provides examples of how it has worked with companies he’s consulted with in the past. This work would supplement other works in a collection on ESG-related topics in business.
