Introducing a new, realistic loyalty pact between employer and employee


Managers today in the networked age are facing a dilemma. You can’t afford to offer lifetime employment. But you can’t build a lasting, innovative business when everyone acts like a free agent. Models built for long-term employment no longer work in modern workplaces that are defined by continuous change.

“The Alliance” offers a solution. Stop thinking of employees as family or free agent, and instead think of them as allies in a tour of duty.


  • Rebuild lost trust with straight talk that recognizes realities of the modern economy.
  • Create realistic and mutually beneficial employer/employee relationships
  • Put trust at the heart of your management strategy


Chris Yeh co-authored “The Alliance,” with Reid Hoffman, founder/chairman of LinkedIn. He’ll share insights from this bold and practical guide for managers and executives and preview tools that help you recruit, manage, and retain the kind of employees that help your company thrive in today’s world.
