A database of company culture initiatives to learn from and be inspired by.

Employee Book Club

A book club is a group of individuals who voluntarily read the same book and then meet up to discuss it. This initiative is an easy and inexpensive way to share learnings and develop employees at work.

Book clubs can meet up to discuss the book in its entirety, or they can meet up to discuss chapters at a time.

To enhance the impact of the book club, select one person per book to write up discussion notes to share with the organization, or align the selected books with the goals, challenges, or needs of the organization. Moreover, to gain executive or leadership buy-in, ask members of the leadership team for book suggestions and start with them.


  • Inexpensively develop employees by learning through reading, and practicing leadership by facilitating group discussions.
  • Connect employees that might otherwise not meet, and build camaraderie.
  • Develop a culture of learning and growing.
