A high degree of personal freedom and autonomy 3. Regular collaboration and opportunities for input 4. Ample vacation time (4 weeks per year) 5. Extended travel-working possibilities (up 1 month long) 6. Generous compensation with regular performance bonuses and salary reviews
  11. 11. corporatefinanceinstitute.com Access to company information (context) In order to make smart decisions people need to know the full context Most companies hide information from their employees and we think this leads to bad decisions All employees can access: • Strategic planning sessions • Team offsites • Monthly operational and financial updates • Budget model • Annual financial statements Note: Everyone with access signs a confidentially pledge
  12. 12. corporatefinanceinstitute.com Personal freedom and autonomy People perform their best work when they have autonomy over what they do Companies often micromanage their employees which leads to them being disconnected and dispassionate How we manage work: • Team members set their own goals for performance measurement • Trying new things is encouraged • Learning from mistakes leads to growth • Disagreements are settled by a consensus
  13. 13. corporatefinanceinstitute.com Collaboration and input The most valuable asset we have is our employees, and their ideas drive our business forward Excluding employees form strategic planning processes is a mistake Collaboration and input happen via: • Weekly full-team meetings • A safe environment for sharing ideas and feedback • Employee-wide strategic planning sessions • Sharing experiences across job functions/departments
  14. 14. corporatefinanceinstitute.com Ample vacation time We would rather have a defined policy that leads to equal and fair time off, rather than an unlimited policy that is unequally or unfairly used Time away is critical for delivering long term sustainable results CFI’s policy: • 4 weeks off per year for all employees (analyst to CEO) • Using all vacation time is encouraged • A plan must be submitted to outline how the team will manage while the person is away

  17. 17. corporatefinanceinstitute.com Goal setting and feedback Frequent goal setting, regular feedback, and timely bonuses are critical for employee engagement and motivation.
  18. 18. corporatefinanceinstitute.com Goal setting and feedback We have a regular schedule for goal setting and feedback This includes: • Semi-annual goal setting by employees • Semi-annual performance evaluations (including bonus and salary adjustments) • 3-month (mid-point) check-ins • Monthly informal conversations
