|Time Waits for No One - by Keshida Layone (http://www.keshidalayone.com/)|
Using results only work environment or Rowe for short, employees are paid for their actual work done instead of the number of hours that they are at their work location. I remember in my first job out of high school waiting alongside the rest of my department next to the punch clock 15 minutes before it was 5 o'clock. The last 15 to 30 minutes of that day was completely unproductive about the company and for its employees since everyone was just waiting around for the clock to say 5 p.m. so we can all go home. Thinking back now it was such a silly waste of time.
Instead of work being based on time, a much more efficient strategy is work based on tasks and goals that need to be accomplished.
I found this great Youtube interview of one of the creators of the ROWE, Jody Thompson:
Do you know of someone who works in a ROWE?
Would a ROWE be a good idea for your company?
