“Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.”
― Aldous Huxley
Imagine working for a company that wants to make work exciting, fun and challenging while offering top quality service and yet not all companies care about their people, those both inside and outside the business. There are organizations that value their staff and the result is that the employees desire to do their best for their customers and for the company.
Recently I’ve come across a number of people who are being bullied within their company, micro-managed and intimated by threat or coercive pressures by poor management practices. The bully doesn’t belong as a leader or manager in any company and yet they find a way to maintain a position of power in their organization. Results matter and how they are achieved matter as well.
There are some companies that boost results and have better ways to manage people and better ways to get results as well.
Take a look at these values, what do you think? Is it a top company? Does this company value its employees and customers?
- Deliver WOW Through Service
- Embrace and Drive Change
- Create Fun and A Little Weirdness
- Be Adventurous, Creative, and Open-Minded
- Pursue Growth and Learning
- Build Open and Honest Relationships With Communication
- Build a Positive Team and Family Spirit
- Do More With Less
- Be Passionate and Determined
- Be Humble
What company do you think has these values as part of their business structure?
The company that has these values is Zappos. Is this an organization you’d like to work for?
What kind of organization do you want to be a part of? What kind of culture would you fit best into?
