Out of the flurry of comments in the wake of the damming publication about Amazon’s perceived management style, in The New York Times article last week, emerges in interesting insight.
Glenn Elliott, founder and CEO of employee engagement technology firm makes the observation of the two emerging styles of business management strategies in our ‘uber-competitive’ global technology and diverse world. There are those that capitalise on the power of inclusion, by engaging the wealth of diverse workforces, and those that simply consume and discard human capital.
Or put another way, those that have the potential to be sustainable and those that do not!
The question is which style of business is yours and who would you sooner work for?

Elliot regularly uses Amazon as an example in his customer presentations and says that there are two types of companies that will thrive in the new ‘uber-competitive’ world: Those that engage their people and those that eliminate their people. Amazon is his prime example of the latter.
