If you don’t create a culture at your company, a culture will create itself. And it won’t be good.

These strategies sound so simple, yet, they are so difficult to execute consistently.  From the article:

 

“What Mr. Gilbert and Mr. Emerson have done is create a set of expectations as well as a sense of community and mission.


Employees at Quicken Loans have it hammered into them: care about the customer, sweat every detail, improvise when you need to, always deliver.”


And many, like “We’ll figure it out,” make sense only with elucidation: “Not everything comes with a set of instructions. The innovators of the world are often exploring uncharted territory.”

Six Things You Don't Owe Your Boss

Six Things You Don't Owe Your Boss | Mind Your Business! | Scoop.it

The typical workday is long enough as it is, and technology is making it even longer. When you do finally get home from a full day at the office, your mobile phone rings off the hook, and emails drop into your inbox from people who expect immediate responses.

 

While most people claim to disconnect as soon as they get home, recent research says otherwise. A study conducted by the American Psychological Association found that more than 50% of us check work email before and after work hours, throughout the weekend, and even when we’re sick. Even worse, 44% of us check work email while on vacation.

 

A Northern Illinois University study that came out this summer shows just how bad this level of connection really is. The study found that the expectation that people need to respond to emails during off-work hours produces a prolonged stress response, which the researchers named telepressure.

Adele Taylor's curator insight, February 3, 3:41 PM

I am definitely guilty of checking my emails before and after work, but I have taken to disconnecting them when I am on holiday otherwise I know I will look.   Anyone else guilty of the same?

Also, there are some interesting points about where the balance lies between work and family, particularly points 4 and 5.
