Are You Accomplishing Everything You COULD?
Honore Construction is a Baton Rouge, LA-based custom homebuilder and an Inc 500 company. They place such importance on integrity, reliability and balance in every aspect of life that they've implemented internal systems to reinforce them with their team members.
Their policy on work-life balance is a great example. Every employee at Honore is required to clock in between 8:00 - 8:30 am and out by 5:00 - 5:30 pm. If they come in earlier or stay any later, they are taken OUT of the bonus pool. Because everyone knows they have to leave by 5:30 pm, wasted time has dropped to a minimum; productivity is high; quality is outstanding; attitudes are great, and turnover is low.
Everyone is singularly focused on productivity. There's no time for leisurely doing their job; no lengthy lunches; no more countless breaks throughout the day.
Think about how much you accomplish the day before you go on vacation. Now imagine EVERY day is like that! What you could accomplish in one day at your company if you took this approach?
Make it a productive day!
