Best Buy has rolled out a Results Oriented Work Environment or ROWE program.

The intiative seeks to demolish decades-old dogma that equates physical presence at the office with productivity. The new goal is to judge performance on output instead of hours.

And the pay off since the program was implemented has been dramatic.

According to some reports, productivity in Best Buy is up an average 35 per cent in departments that have switched to ROWE.

Employee satisfaction – which is a barometer for retention – is way up too, according to the Gallup Organization, which audits corporate cultures.
