Through a great post in Worthwhile, I found an excerpt from a book called The Seven-Day Weekend, written by the CEO of a Brazilian company who takes a radical approach to his not-very-radical business:
- "It's our lack of formal structure, our willingness to let workers follow their interests and their instincts when choosing jobs or projects."
- "It's our insistence that workers seek personal challenges and satisfaction before trying to meet the company's goals."
- "It's our commitment to encouraging employees to ramble through their day or week so that they will meander into new ideas and new business opportunities."
- "It's our philosophy of embracing democracy and open communication, and inciting questions and dissent in the workplace."
