Dr. Beverly Kaye is recognized internationally as a professional dedicated to helping individuals, managers and organizations understand the practical “how-to” principles of employee development, engagement, and retention. Her books and learning materials have stood the test of time. Her groundbreaking career development, engagement, and mentoring programs have been implemented by such leading corporations as American Express, DaimlerChrysler, Hartford Life, Macy's, Marriott International, Microsoft, Sprint, Starbucks, and Xerox.
Bev has spent years researching corporate strategies for developing, engaging, and retaining knowledge workers. Her book, Love 'Em or Lose 'Em: Getting Good People to Stay, (Berrett-Koehler, 3d Ed. 2005) co-authored with Sharon Jordan-Evans, has sold nearly a half-million copies in 20 languages and has reached Wall Street Journal and Amazon bestseller status. Learning Journeys (Davies-Black, 2001), edited by Dr. Kaye, is a collection of essays from top management experts. Love It, Don't Leave It: 26 Ways to Get What You Want at Work (Berrett-Koehler, 2003), also a WSJ bestseller, is designed to put job satisfaction in the hands of the employee. In the early '80s, Dr. Kaye first published her now-classic book, Up is NOT the Only Way (revised, Davies-Black, 1997), which foresaw the effects of leaner and flatter organizations on individual careers.
Before earning a doctorate at UCLA, Bev did graduate work in organization development at MIT Sloan School of Management and earned a Master's Degree from George Washington University.
