Great Leadership Driven Cultures and a Great Workplace Are a Choice? ……… Here are two actual opposite outcomes. “Choose Wisely!”
Here are two dramatic examples, representing two actual companies, tracing how two opposite leadership driven cultures went about solving the same issue. For simplicity sake both had $10 Million in sales/revenue, a 10% profit margin and 200 employees (20 management and 180 line and hourly employees). They both had a projected 1 – 3% decline ($100,000 – $300,000) in income for the coming year. At the time both company’s starting wages were near the state and/or federal minimum and already experiencing recruitment and retention problems. The details were modified to protect identities, but actually occurred during the same period of time, after the end of the Great Recession, 2013 – 2015.
