Today is Employee Appreciation Day, but this week’s Awesome Office episode is not about that. (Well, not really....) Our focus this week isn’t how to appreciate your employees once a year - or even once in a while.

How to Manage the Whole Person, w/ SnackNation President and COO Ryan Schneider

1/24/2018

By now you’re probably familiar with the concept of "work-life integration," which is rapidly replacing the outdated notion of "work-life balance." Work-life integration simply acknowledges the reality that work is a major part of our lives. Most of us spend 8, 9, 10 or more hours at the office every day, so to pretend that there’s a distinction between “work” and “life” just isn’t on the level. But acknowledging this reality is just the first step. For people-focused leaders, the next...

12/13/2017

According to a 2014 survey of 20,000 U.S. employees, only 36% of workers find meaning in their work. In other words, nearly two thirds of employees don’t find their jobs meaningful at all. If that statistic alarms you (it should), or if you find yourself amongst the 64%, there’s hope on the horizon. Because there’s a solution, and it’s called job hacking.

You could say that FabFitFun is one of the more successful subscription box companies out there - and you wouldn’t be wrong - but I’m guessing that co-founder and co-CEO Daniel Broukhim might not totally agree. That’s because he and his team see FabFitFun as less of a “box company” and more of an “un-boxing” company. What’s the difference? Well not only is FabFitFun all about the joy of discovery that comes with unboxing their monthly (or quarterly) boxes filled with full size lifestyle...

Have you ever wondered where the word 'company' comes from? Most of us use it interchangeably with 'business,' but it's not quite the same thing. It's actually a lot simpler than that. The etymology tells us that company is a military term that simply means a body of people. Company = people. Literally. It's not a coincidence. Your product, brand, customer care, all that valuable IP - that's all created and managed by people. That makes people your most valuable asset. So if people are...
