TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The authors of THE DECODED COMPANY: Know Your Talent Better Than You Know Your Customers (Portfolio/Penguin) are proud to announce that their New York Times bestseller has won a 2015 Gold Axiom Business Book Award.
Tied for top honors with Walter Isaacson’s The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution (Simon & Schuster) in the Business Technology category, The Decoded Company is the first book about using big data in the workplace. It reveals how a growing number of industry-leading companies like Google, Starbucks, and Whole Foods are decoding employee work data in the same way that Facebook, Netflix, Spotify and other apps decode customer data to personalize, simplify and enhance the user experience.
“We are grateful to Axiom for recognizing The Decoded Company as one of the best business books in the world and feel incredibly honored to stand shoulder to shoulder with Walter Isaacson,” said co-author and Klick Inc. CEO Leerom Segal.
Co-author Jay Goldman added, “We want to thank all of the readers and companies who have reached out to us to let us know that The Decoded Company has resonated with them and prompted them to explore data-driven, talent-centric management approaches that will make their employees more engaged, happy, and productive.”
Based on the overwhelming interest in The Decoded Company and Klick’s enterprise operating system Genome (also profiled in the book), the company is launching Sensei Labs to reinvent the technology of management, culture and engagement and help companies evolve and execute faster.
