The Way I Work: Jason Fried of 37 Signals” from Inc.com

This article from Inc.com is about Jason Fried, founder of software company 37 signals.  It is how he works and runs his company.  This is a great read and hopefully a realization that the 40-hour workweek potentially decreases productivity, creativity and employee happiness.  Included below are a few of my favorite parts of the article:

“Employees come to the office if and when they feel like it, or else they work from home. I don’t believe in the 40-hour workweek, so we cut all that BS about being somewhere for a certain number of hours. I have no idea how many hours my employees work — I just know they get the work done”

“I hate it when businesses treat their employees like children. They block Facebook or YouTube because they want their employees to work eight hours a day. But instead of getting more productivity, you’re getting frustration. What’s the point? As long as the work gets done, I don’t care what people do all day.”
