As a society, we’re starting to walk away from the idea that people can be treated like a widget, plugged into a process, then managed like a resource. When a company’s only goal is to make money, they ironically set themselves on a path to squander the opportunities to do so. Companies who build their cultures upon the value of relationships save money. They have less turnover. Experience fewer workplace injuries. A smaller number of employees miss work which affect productivity. More employees offer innovative ideas because they feel safe enough to engage their best stuff.
