The Three Evils of An Old School Workplace
“Work saves us from 3 great evils: boredom, vice, and need.” – Voltaire
But some work is better than others, isn’t it?
Leader, this post is for you.
Does your company’s work save your workers from boredom? Or have you dumbed it down so much that even a monkey would yawn?
Does your company’s work save your employees from vice? Or is the work itself a vice, as your whole organization swindles your customers, deceives your recruits, and outsmarts the communities in which you operate?
Does your company’s work save your workers from need? Or are their jobs actually J.O.B.s – as in, Just Over Broke?
It’s a new age, the Social Age, and all the old school, Industrial Age, Mr. Burns-style practices are being exposed to the light of day. We can’t get away with this kind of thinking and behaving anymore. We never should have, anyway.
