Zappos has been in the news recently because of its decision to give bonuses to employees who elect to leave the online retailer. Their rationale? They only want people who are fully on board with their new employee-driven approach to management. Everyone else is free to go –in fact, they encourage it.
Regardless of what you think of employee-driven management, creating a culture of change can yield huge dividends. One of our clients, a financial services company, promised their employees stock options if they embraced a new results-based compensation scheme. Almost everyone opted in. Those who didn’t soon recognized that they were not a part of the culture and left the company.
