Sample text

This may seem like a foreign concept in an era where corporations use computer programs to sift through résumés for words that fit specific job descriptions. But consider this: technology can find the hard skills, like an MBA or a background in engineering, but it can’t find the soft skills—qualities such as innovation, someone who thinks service and integrity are im­ portant, and people who like other people. These are the people who make an organization sing. It’s these employees who will embrace the idea of transparency because they will make decisions from a founda­ tion of values, and work by the standards you have set for the cor­ porate culture.

Not only did we gain a great program that still works today, we empowered the em­ ployee who came up with the idea to implement it.

When I first joined Dial, I said that it would be in the best interest of shareowners if Dial were part of a larger company. When employees heard what I said, I wasn’t the most popular guy on the block. Who wants to hear the new guy in charge say that the company has a for sale sign on it?
