The Haves and Have Nots introduces a unique framework for understanding how employees' efforts depend on their identification with the organization, how employee/employer ties are built and broken, and how enterprises can achieve powerful competitive advantage by overcoming their tendencies to create "haves" and "have nots." Drawing on extensive case studies, it identifies the real psychological reasons why executives demand unfair special privilege, shows how this undermines the organization, and offers proven, practical solutions.
