Valve's handbook for new employees is remarkable

0

Did you get a chance to see the leaked handbook for new employees at Valve? You should read this thing, cover to cover. I'll wait. There are enough silly figures and in-jokes that even if you aren't normally the type of person to care about how companies are run, you'll still want to give the guide a look.

While the thought of complete autonomy in the workplace might initially sound incredible, I can see how to some, constantly needing to decide which direction to take yourself in could be overwhelming, or even frightening. This document delves into how Valve is able to make its flat structure work.

Truly fascinating stuff. And with a profitability per employee that beats Google, the results speak for themselves. While not all of the ideas presented in the handbook are necessarily translatable to every type of business, there's some valuable insight to be found here. Go out, would-be entrepreneurs, and make the world suck slightly less.
