Ok. We’ve all heard of the numerous magazines that have lists of “the best”. The best places to work, the best place for working mothers, the best place to (fill in the blank). While being on a list is often very desirable for the company, I get frustrated with the reasoning, or lack of, behind it.
I once had someone tell me at a former company that we needed a plan to get on one of these lists. My response was….you shouldn’t DO something to get on a list. If the company is doing what is in the best interest of the employees; what is progressive in terms of flexibility, benefits, compensation strategy, training and development, and special programs, the company will have happy employees.
Happy Employees = Being “The Best”.
What do you think?
