Day 9

In addition to treating people the right way and providing at least the norm benefits, the small giants have three more things that set them apart from other employers: 1. A singular higher purpose that run throughout everything the company does. 2. Bonuses and perks that go above and beyond what the employees expect. These companies provide sabbaticals, surprise bonuses, or company retriers – some even provide all this at once. They do anything they can to make the employees feel cared for. 3. A sense of collegiality. They don’t expect their employees to develop this out of nowhere. Instead, they actively work on making sure stress is reduced and people enjoy their work. Then the employees can focus on working together instead of sabotaging each other for the next raise.
