P32: More Powerful than a Google search
By Gloria Hong
Question: What are some examples of companies that excel in living their beliefs/philosophy across the entire organization (e.g. Disney, Nordstrom)?
- Purpose & Mission: So inspiring…they go beyond clothing industry/profits to helping the world become a better, more sustainable place. They partnered with eBbay to encourage sales of used Patagonia products (talk about high quality – I still have 15 year old Patagonia products that wash ‘n wear like new!)
- Customer Service: They hire people who love and live the outdoors, they stand by their products and encourage lifetime use of their products
- HR: Best of all, they encourage employees to travel their own adventures. Sabbaticals are the norm and they’re rewarded for it!
