What good are Company perks if we ignore them?

What good are Company perks if we ignore them?

Employee benefits are meant to bring joy and happiness to employees and their family and friends.

We humans have a habit of postponing today’s joy because we are so busy. We promise ourselves we’ll cash in on those joyful moments when the timing is right.

As they say, “No time like the present”.

There was also an orchestrated Magic Moment at Disney University’s “Company D” store. It included a Disney Cast happy birthday wish and concluded with Donna selecting her choice of a Cast exclusive Disney trading pin, compliments of Mickey Mouse (as far as she knows).

And perhaps the icing on the cake was seeing Mickey Mouse three times at DU. It was unexpected (and delightful) even for the “tour guide”.

While we could have snapped photos of Mickey there, we chose not to out of a deep respect for Disney’s Corporate Culture.

Insight: Not all perks are genuine. Some are meant to manipulate. Today was 100% genuine. Thank you Walt Disney.

It’s been a great run for 30 years

There is no luck, only hard work.

The opportunity to hop on a Disney Cruise Line bus and escort 50 business travelers backstage happened yesterday, will happen again today, and one final time tomorrow.

  • Epcot Cast Services Building
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios Theme Park
  • Disney’s Magic Kingdom Theme Park

It’s been a great run.

Is the best efficiency to create a busy enough schedule to insulate

Bosses are responsible for managing many things.

Including people.

People are complex. Each one different.

Time consuming?

Potentially.

Probably.

Is the best efficiency to create a busy enough schedule to insulate the leader from the really hard work of making their team feel like rock stars?

One Question A Day?

Do annual employee performance reviews use criteria only the leader knows?

Mid Life Celebration book excerpt with typo
Once past the typo (1st line) the rest of this has uncanny correlation here

 

Do annual employee performance reviews use criteria only the leader knows?

Or is it crystal clear – with no surprises and no tension – because everything is transparent and authentic?
