We came across an excellent articleon Fast Company about worker happiness (and the startling lack thereof).

It starts with the story of an employee who, after two decades of service to a financial insitution, decided he couldn't take it any more:

In A World Of Chaos, A Meaningful Culture Rules

Your brand operates in a messy world. 

One that's well beyond it's control.

Inspired by sudden, amazing and lucrative opportunities.

Distracted, confused and tired out by the hyper-activity that surrounds it.

When you use your brand to…

Can Your Brand Tell A Workplace Story Like This?

We're willing to bet that more C-suite bottoms sit on Herman Miller chairs than any other brand chair.

We'll also go as far as to bet that a majority of those well-seated C-suiters would have a hard time telling an employee workplace story as compelling and meaningful as Herman Miller's.

As they say in their video, Herman Miller is more a…

We've written before about the gaps between what business leaders believe and what their employees think when it comes to the company's values. 

Today we'd like to explore another gap.

This is the gap between what the CEO sees as the company's vision, and what employees are doing to help achieve that vision.

In some cases, the gap exists simply because employees haven't been informed of the vision.

As such, they are left to their own devices, pulling the company…

Why?

Mostly because we can easily measure things now.

But there are limits to the value of metrics.
