(hint: employees drool)
We believe employees are always a bad idea, and that people at work should all be Stakeholders instead. Read through the side by side comparisons and see how see how you stack up as a Stakeholder or as an employee.
If you look at the above and say, “I can’t trust my company to compensate me like a stakeholder”, you’re in the wrong company. Leave and find one that rewards performance and results, not growing mold sitting in your chair. You’ll have a lot more fun.
If you’re an employer and you think it would be great to do have Stakeholders but most people aren’t like that, take a look at your own leadership style and/or your belief system. Most people actually want to make a contribution to the world around them and be adults. Are you letting them be, or are you assuming they can’t be adults? If you believe people are most likely to be employees, you’ll treat them that way and they will respond that way.
The Industrial Age is over. Stakeholders rule. Employees drool.
