  1. Every six months managers are evaluated by those who work under them and the results are posted for all to see.
  2. No executive dining rooms.

  1. Semler said, “its the place where democracy, socialism, capitalism.. works its best”.

    Semco is an unusual place for those managers whose minds are contained in a box. Many thought that it’s impossible but it works well at Semco. Sadly, many choose the old route and not innovating. My organization is not an exemption.

  2. One company I know of that does it differently is SAS. I’ve read somewhere that the company provides a great working environment.
