With the recent news of employee engagement on a slight decline in North America, it is a good time to look at who as doing company culture right. The website www.humanresourcesmba.net put together this infographic meets case study outlining the finer points of corporate culture from leaders Pixar, Patagonia, and Google.
At Pixar President Ed Catmill says in this in this video interview ”there is very high tolerance for eccentricity, very creative, and to the point where some are strange“.
Google covers things from birth to death in this quora discussion on the best Google perk. Employee Paul Cowan says, “if a Googler dies, all their stock vests immediately, and on top of the (not atypical, I think?) life insurance payout, their surviving spouse continues to get half of the Googler’s salary for the next 10 years. And there’s an additional $1,000/month benefit for any of the Googler’s children”.
Finally, in an Inc interview with Patagonia founder, Yvon Chouinard says “Blurring the lines between work and play worked for us, because it was part of the core reasons we came to work every day“.
