Results-Only Work Environment

Results-Only Work Environment is the NEW flexibility.  Through the training process created and owned by CultureRx, managers learn how to manage in the 21st century, and teams understand they will be evaluated on performance, not presence. In a ROWE, people focus on results and only results – increasing  the  organization’s performance while cultivating the right environment for people to manage all the demands in their lives...including work.

“ROWE is the only way to survive the extreme pressures of Corporate America today. Burn-out would otherwise be just around the corner for many of us. With cut backs and growing expectations, we need the flexibility of accomplishing our work when and how we need to.”  - Employee comment, Best Buy Co., Inc.

"ROWE and the flexibility it brings has gone a long way in a short time to increasing productivity and accountability on our team. I feel like now we all know the results show more than anything how committed and skilled you are in your job."  - Employee comment, Gap, Inc.
