What are You Doing?

May 29, 2012 Leave a comment

An investor once visited an IT company and was accompanied to the Quality Assurance department. He approached the QA Analysts and tried to do some small talk.

Investor: What are you guys doing?

Employee #1: Well, I’m executing these bunch of test scenarios repeatedly.

Employee #2: Well, I’m trying to earn a living.

Employee #3: Well, I make sure users will have a valuable experience with this cool stuff we are developing.

Although the three employees are doing the same task, only one of them sees the bigger picture of their work and truly understands the value of their job. #Perspective

How about you, what are you really doing?

What Drives You?

What drives you?

I’m consolidating great ideas I bump along the way that would somehow motivate us in our work place. I’ll be needing your help on this one, please feel free to add more on the list.

1. “Do whatever you want” Day

Inspired from Atlassian’s “Fedex” Day. This is a time(24 hours) given to their developers to work on whatever they want as long as it is related to their products. This activity fosters creativity and fun.

2. Late Mo, Earning Ko

I heard this during one of my RX morning routines. This is company perks where employees tardiness deductions will be collected and distributed as reward to employees who have no tardiness. Cool huh!
