A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on work, slavery, inequality, workplace, emplyers, employees, and wage slavery

The world of employer and employee, like that of master and slave, debases both.

Edward Abbey (1927 - 1989)

A Quote by Bill George on culture, employees, and business

Employees, the key is what motivates people. And they are not gonna be motivated about maximizing shareholder value. I can tell you that. You can make them all shareholders, and that will help. But they're—only gonna be motivated about a sense of purpose.

A Quote by Joanna Meiseles on employees, business, recruitment, and team

What do the best college sports teams do? Recruit the best players all the time! When a business is short-staffed, that is the worst time to recruit because you are desperate. It is much better to recruit and network all the time, so the pipeline is full when you need it. Just like college sports teams, when you recruit the best you get a reputation for excellence and great players (employees) want to be on your team. Recruiting gets a whole lot easier when you have a reputation for being a great place to work.

A Quote by Liz Murray on employees, respect, fear, confident, incompetent, leadership, and leader

When you go back to your environment and you deal with employees... do you inspire people or do you make them feel fear?  Do you make them feel confident or incompetent?  I think that distinction really marks the leader.

A Quote by Robert Reich on work, employees, downsizing, workplace, and business

I think re-engineering or restructuring or downsizing or rightsizing or whatever you want to call it, it's basically firing, has gone way too far. Employees, as I've talked to them across the country, feel that they are not respected, they are not valued, they are worried about their jobs. They simply feel that the company is no longer loyal to them. Why should they be loyal to the company, they ask me. Why should I go the extra mile? Why should I care?

A Quote by Marc Benioff on business, good business, conscious business, employees, work, balance, and values

I believe a balanced life is essential, and I try to make sure that all of our employees know that and live that way. It’s crucial to me as a manager that I help ensure that our employees are as successful as our customers and partners.

I also think that employees these days expect less of a separation of work and personal life. That doesn’t mean that work tasks should encroach upon our personal time, but it does mean that employees today expect more from the companies for whom they work. Why shouldn’t your workplace reflect your values? Why is "giving back" not a part of our jobs? The answer for us is to integrate philanthropy with work.

When I explain our company values and the foundation to prospective employees, they realize that they have an opportunity to do much more than change the way businesses manage and share information. When you take a workforce of smart, creative, dedicated people and say "take this company time to serve your community, and bring along your coworkers, customers, and partners" great things happen.

A Quote by Thomas J. "Tom" Peters on employees, customers, and business

CEO Hal Rosenbluth chronicled the incredible success of his travel-services firm, Rosenbluth Internationl, in...

The Customer Comes Second.

Love that title!

Who comes first? Don't be silly, says King Hal; it's employees. That is -- and this dear Watson, is elementary -- if you genuinely want to put customers first, you must put employees more first.

A Quote by Marilyn Carlson Nelson on customers, business, employees, and people

I feel constantly the tension of the quarterly cycles, the drive to produce shareowner value at the cost sometimes of customer value and employee value. [But] if you take equal care of the employees, they will take equal care of the customers and then we will get an equal or better opportunity for our shareowners.

A Quote by Warren G. Bennis on dogs, employees, and future

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment.
