For many of you whom have taken my classes over years may recall one of the stories that I bring up about supporting our mobile users. I use an example of the Results Only Work Environment created at Best Buy as an example of the environments that many of us will be supporting over the years. Yesterday I had the opportunity for MCTExpert to receive training on how to build a ROWE company from the people that created ROWE at CultureRX.
The idea behind ROWE is that instead of basing an employee’s productivity on time or how long they are in the office, you base it on the actual work they performed. You trust your employee to work when they want, where they want, as long as the work gets done. I encourage any company out there who wants to filter out the non-contributors and keep the talent to give the people at CultureRX a call. Our trainer was Christy and she was outstanding. She really was able to drive home the different between the 1950’s time monitoring method and the 21 century technology benefits of actually doing work. I’ll be using the knowledge gained not only to build a better company, but to deliver better information in my course presentations.
