I’ve independently speculated that jobs should be about results and not just about passing time sitting at a desk or in a factory. Again, (seemingly) random surfing has turned up another gem. My idea is not unique; in fact it’s a thing – Results-Oriented Work Environment (ROWE).
Created by a couple of former HR staffers, Jody Thompson and Cali Ressler, ROWE is a very real concept in use by actual companies (like Best Buy). They even have a book (pictured) and a Wikipedia entry.
How about that? I’m rooting for them and for ROWE.
