Synopsis

Introduction by President Jimmy Carter
The Home Depot cofounder and owner of the NFL's Atlanta Falcons shares a vision and a roadmap for values-based business.

Arthur M. Blank believes that for good companies, purpose and profit can—and should—go hand in hand. And he should know. Together with cofounder Bernie Marcus, Blank built The Home Depot from an idea and a dream to a $50 billion-dollar company, the leading home improvement retailer in the world. And even while opening a new store every 42 hours, they never lost sight of their commitment to care for their people and communities. In fact, in 2001, The Home Depot was voted America’s most socially responsible company. 

Blank left The Home Depot that same year with a burning question: Could the values and culture that made that company great be replicated? Good Company takes readers inside the story of how he did just that—turning around a struggling NFL team, rebooting a near-bankrupt retail chain, building a brand-new stadium, revitalizing a blighted neighborhood, launching a startup soccer club, and more.

 “When good companies put the wellbeing of their customers, their associates, and their communities first, financial success will follow,” Blank writes. “The entrepreneurs and business leaders of today and tomorrow have an extraordinary opportunity: to prove that through upholding values we can create value—for the company, for the customer, and for the community.”
