Flexible work – less heart problems | January 17, 2008

Flexible work - less heart problems

As a person who has experienced heart problems at a young age because of unnecessary schedule pressure, I care about timetables and flexibility, here’s a great post from Best Buy’s Cali & Jody.

Nothing’s worth my health. And Results-Only Work Environment (ROWE) that has revolutionized Best Buy.

With ROWE:

  • There is no need for schedules
  • Nobody focuses on “how many hours did you work?”
  • Nobody feels overworked, stressed out or guilty
  • Work is not a place you go, it’s something you do
  • People at all levels stop wasting the company’s time and money
  • Teamwork, morale, and engagement soar
  • There’s no judgment on how people spend their time

ROWE is all about results. No results, no job. It’s that simple.

The old corporate industrial is dying, yet still taking health of many 😦 When will people say NO to this kind of work environment and switch to flexibility?

Here’s a little ROWE quiz for you:

  2. Then you think like millions of other people. Tired of “pretend-to-work” environments. The new era of openness is here. Congrats, you’re in 😀
