This dumpster was just dropped off at my house so that the gardeners could cut down massive vines in order to reveal a beautiful wall beneath.
You have so much beauty beneath the surface. Let it shine.
The best part? As I was talking to the delivery man, I asked him if he was happy at work. He was quiet for a moment and then a giant smile spread across his face.
“We have started a team competition with walking. I am getting to know people inside my company.” He was happy. Work was fun.
When a company wants to build a great culture, it’s not all about the money. It’s actually the little things that make a difference.
I teach this to corporations and I have a feeling that his company (Marborg) is on its way to ‘getting it.’
I shop at Whole Foods. I love that store. Wherever I go, I search for signs of happiness or unhappiness at work in the eyes of employees.
Why is it that the employees at Whole Foods seem so happy each time I come in, I wondered. Always helpful, never in a hurry. Consistency throughout the shopping process.
And then I saw it.
Signs on the wall.
AND a ping pong table in the employee break room, which was encased in glass so that shoppers could see that the employees were having a good time.
Now that’s a great cultural add! Good job Whole Foods. These are the sorts of things I teach to large corporations so that they keep their employees engaged and onboard.
