There is an interesting article in Inc. magazine about Jason Fried and his company, 37Signals, and the kind of culture Jason has created to attract top notch people.
The article is entitled The Way I Work: Jason Fried of 37Signals, and I think you’ll find it rather interesting.
A great company that focuses on results not activities. People can come and go as they please as long as the work gets done., and they don’t have to punch the time clock when they come and go.
People are trusted to give their best and brightest, and they’re not harassed when they take a nap at their desks.
I think this company is the role model of the perfect professional knowledge firm.
