I love learning about unique business practices. I keep a file of the ones I find most interesting. The most famous is Google's policy of encouraging employees to spend 20% of their work time on side projects. But here are a couple others I've come across recently:
Zappo's offers new employees a $2,000 bonus to quit after they've completed a four-month training period. CEO Tony Hsieh says, "It's best to know early on if an employee doesn't buy into the vision or the culture."
A new agency called Big Agency Defectors (BAD) has a 20:20:20 plan. For all new clients, they will develop three creative routes for $20k. For another $20k, they'll blow out any one of those routes into a full campaign. And they'll charge a 20% markup of production on any ads produced.
Anyone have any other cool ideas to share?
Anyone have any specifically from Swiss or Euro businesses?
Life in the U.S. after Switzerland. Sad.
