Companies That Promote Enthusiasm Make More Money
That’s what management expert David Maister found when he studied 29 companies around the world to determine whether employee attitudes correlated with financial success. The statistics proved that the greater a firm’s morale, the more profitable it is. In his book Practice What You Preach: What Managers Must Do to Create a High Achievement Culture, Maister also discovered that successful companies have “superstar managers” who create fun. How? They do such things as…
- Arrange group days out of the office.
- Do things that surprise people.
- Offer free exercise classes, book clubs, language lessons, surprise ice cream sundaes, pinball machines, and so on.
- Fund client entertainment liberally.
- Work hard and play hard with their people. “People like and need a release.”
By regularly providing fun for employees, Maister concludes, you can “retain people and increase billability by 15 percent”!
