The Company Library

A reading list for all employees

Illustration: Millie Marotta

Certain books can help define a company. On Instagram we asked what books you would include on a recommended reading list for new and existing employees. Books that might encourage us to think differently, adapt to change, lead the charge, work smart and stay motivated. We had a great response, and have put together our own list below. We’d love to hear of other books that you’d recommend.
