Issue 65 - 02 | Freedom, Inc. Free Your Employees and Let Them Lead Your Business to Higher Productivity, Profits and Growth
By Brian M. Carney & Isaac Getz Published Dec. 10, 2009 2:51 a.m.

“From Genesis ‘in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread’ to Marx’s ]the proletariat has nothing to lose but its chains,’ work has always been seen as a constraint and the workplace as a ship’s galley. But this is beginning to change, and it comes, we have discovered, not from workers but from their bosses. This is the most important corporate movement of the last two decades, a movement that has been quietly transforming the fortunes of dozens of businesses and the lives of thousands of employees by using a source of benefits neglected by most—complete freedom and responsibility for employees to take actions they, not their bosses, decide are best.”
