I’ve blogged about this before, but I find myself revisiting it, to remind myself of the values that matter. Netflix got well known for their vacation policy (or lack thereof), but it’s just a small part of their responsibility culture. The whole presentation is here. It’s 128 slides but it’s a quick read.
If you are in a hurry, read the 9 key values at the start. But by then you’ll probably keep going. My favorite phrase of the whole deck:
Great Workplace is Stunning Colleagues
I love the word “stunning”.
Another great slide is:
Why are we so insistent on high performance?
In procedural work, the best are 2x better than the average.
In creative/inventive work, the best are 10x better than the average, so huge premium on creating effective teams of the best
Seriously, just read the whole thing. You won’t regret it.
