The Container Store was recently mentioned in this excellent post on the Human Capital Blog by Michael Lee Stallard and we just had to share it! The blog is all about the competitive advantage of love in the workplace. Since our company was founded in 1978 we’ve believed in putting employees first and creating win-wins for all the stakeholders in our company, and that love – yes, love!, plays an important part in business. We truly believe that you can make business decisions based on love and still be wildly successful.
Stallard shares research in his post that further proves how love in the workplace positively affects employees – from protecting them from stress and burnout to allowing teams to work better together – which all results in a better-performing company as a whole.
