The seven-day weekend : changing the way work works by Ricardo Semler( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ricardo Semler's favorite question is "Why?" Why do people routinely bring work home on the weekends but never go to the movies on a Monday afternoon? Why do we need to sit at the same desk every day? Why do we have to fill out time sheets or need an HR department to file them? Why are we interviewed by our bosses but never get to interview someone who wants to be our boss?" "For the last twenty years Semler has been doing a lot more than asking questions - he's actually been running a company by breaking every tenet in the traditional rule book. Semler encourages his employees to play hooky. He tells them not to bother with growth plans. Employees choose their own salaries, set their own hours and have no job titles." "Reflecting Ricardo Semler's passion, wry sense of humor, and hardheaded business acumen, The Seven-Day Weekend challenges all of our assumptions about how a successful business should be run."--Jacket
