I’m proud to say I was forwarded this by HR at my office.  My favorite quote:

I think that the big take-away here is that if we start treating people like people, and not assuming that they’re simply horses - you know, slower, smaller, better-smelling horses; if we get past this kind of ideology of carrots and sticks and look at the science, I think we can actually build organizations and work-lives that make us better off, but I also think they have the promise to make our world just a little bit better.
