“You don’t have to trust all your employees, just the ones you want to keep. The same is true for flossing teeth.” — Cynthia C. Froggatt, author of Work Naked
“I sincerely believe that employers who find the answers to the questions (surrounding work/life) are going to be the leading employers in the future. These leaders will attract and retain the very best people. This is the competitive advantage.” — Lew Platt, CEO, Hewlitt-Packard
“In the work/life equation, attitude is far more important than any particular policy or equation.” — Paul Allaire, Chairman and CEO, Xerox
Where do you get your best ideas? In the shower? Driving in the car? Sleeping on it? While exercising – e.g., walking, swimming, running? This is proven. Yet traditional work environments do not contain these options.
Remodel your work life with nap rooms, exercise on the job, use of commute time. Declare two days a week as no-meeting days. Travel with an idea capture tool. Utilize walking or running meetings – people are more creative on their feet. Create work space all around in your life (unless you have trouble turning work off). Your best ideas will come while playing.
Look at results, not the old cues likedress codes and being “on time.” Responsible workers will make sure that they have enough interaction with colleagues and managers to be successful.
