Joost and Pim are on a mission to make work more fun. They quit their frustrating, corporate jobs and set out to travel the world to visit the world’s most inspiring organizations. While checking off their Bucket List they share everything they learn. more+
Recently, a CEO told us something along the lines of this: "I am trying to set a bit of a frame for a remuneration conversation—for myself and other leaders. One way of talking about it is the ‘appropriate´ ratio of lowest to highest paid, from the front lines to CEO. I also recall you saying that if you ask employees what they think, the usual response is in the order of 6 to 8 times. Is my memory accurate? Are you aware of any empirical basis for this? Or have I made it up?!"
The vast majority of employers have been fiercely against the idea of remote work for ages. Before the pandemic hit, most companies lacked the trust and flexibility (and imagination, apparently) to believe it would benefit themselves and their employees.
Imagine a company that is future-proof and ready for the world after the COVID-19 pandemic. Imagine a company that is dynamic, risk-taking, adventurous, rapidly moving, entrepreneurial, sharing profits, flexible, and growing fast. This all sounds like a startup, right? Not necessarily. It can also be the characteristics of a subsidiary of a larger company. At least, that is what the case of Haier Germany shows us.
Our aim has always been to build a global movement to make work more fun. And quite frankly, without the ongoing commitment from lots of people working together to change workplaces for the better, we would get nowhere. With that said, we've laid the important groundwork for the movement to flourish over the next few years—and now you can get ready to join, too.
Most companies still rely exclusively on top-down evaluations, where managers assess the performance of their subordinates—which also typically influences the decision on issues like pay raises. However, a growing number of companies are changing things up by inviting employees to assess their managers. Sadly, most of these approaches are kinda shitty and ineffective.
Email is pretty great. And it’s been in use for far longer than the glorious world wide web we know today. Unfortunately, the way we typically use email sucks big time. And out of all the lousy email practices we encounter in our lives, the primary source is definitely the workplace.
