About this book


The Cultural Work of Corporations argues that corporate culture - the values, customs, and conventions of a business organization - has altered how workers conduct themselves both inside and outside the workplace. Brown demonstrates that corporate culture, an idea celebrated by business magazines and books, human resources departments, executives, and management theorists, is really a means of extending and strengthening work's presence in all aspects of workers' lives, even aspects generally categorized as private. Innovative in its execution, this book draws together a range of literature and information, including popular advice books, organizational theory, fiction, corporate mission statements, business histories, and economic histories.
