Patagonia is known for its ground-breaking and forward-thinking employee engagement initiatives. Because of this they stand out as industry leaders and examples of what is possible when you put your people before profits.
In this interview with Lauren Serota, who was recently hired to restructure the organization and push employee engagement to the limits, we uncover some of Patagonia’s best kept secrets for bringing out the best in their employees and clients.
Some staggering feats they’ve accomplished to date include:
- Maintaining 4% turnover
- Removing all titles from employees
