The reality… some have to be on-site, and some have more flexibility.
An organization that is in the process of transforming their culture (one division at a time) recently ran a Thought Leadership POD and they realized that for their distribution division to keep running profitably they needed to retain their drivers, warehouse and plant support staff to show up on-site. While their office workers were able to work remotely or have more flexibility regarding working on-site.
Many great ideas were tossed out, some are being implemented and some are still being researched.
The employees developed the plan… During a “real” team building event it became evident that many of the employees this division needs to make business happen were the ones that had to come in; warehouse, drivers, support personnel. They developed a plan to re-invest some of the white collar quarterly bonuses to these workers to help cover the increased gas costs.
The teams realized it would be best for everyone…This came about when, as part of the team building event they ran the numbers on the positive impact of reduced turnover, sick days, and stress would have on productivity.
It was there idea…They concluded that the increased productivity, decreased costs would increase everyone’s bonuses. THAT’S IS A TEAM BUILDING EVENT.
