VANCOUVER, Wash., June 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Happiest Company To Work For! is an unprecedented book that defines exactly how to be very unique, very successful, and make lots of money by focusing on keeping all employees happy. Employees work very hard at Mirai Industry with the longest paid vacation, shortest working hours, everyone is fulltime, no overtime, and no sales quotas. Every five years all 850 employees go on an overseas trip – this year it was Italy.
There is no HR department – the staff chooses new hires that they need.
There is no "HoRenSo:"
Ho = Report - no need to get permission from your boss to do new things
Ren = Communicate - no need to talk to other people to decide new things
So = Consult – no need to consult with others – you are your own expert
Mirai is so different from the average American company that requires people doing new things to get approval from their boss. At Mirai they want you to be self-reliant. They want you make the needed decisions to get your job done correctly. They do want you to differentiate all of the products made from the competition – Mirai with only 850 people was in the top 20 companies in Japan for obtaining new patents. Imagine getting $6.00 for every mistake you make, but don't make the same mistake again. Imagine no Carrot and Stick management style. Imagine never being scolded and being treated with respect.
This is a fascinating story about a company that never lost any money in 50 years, and people are truly happy – just ask them and see why turnover is so low.
"I loved the humanization of the way they do business and their investment in human beings and not just in the bottom line. I think that their model in and of itself is a winner regardless of how it's implemented. They believe in their people." – Paul Akers, author of best seller "2 Second Lean."
