Linkedin reveals more than means the eye.
Looking at the competitor’s profile on Linkedin I saw a trend which I never considered before.
Out of the twenty employees listed on their page the vast majority had only been with the company less than 2 years.
While on further research I confirmed that at least 70% of the 100 employees had been with the company I will call “OUTgoods” less than two years. This came as a big surprise given the position of “OUTgoods” in the industry.
They are a small company in a competitive market but have held up against larger companies with more resources. But how is that possible?
After speaking to some people the secret of their success in being competitive and failure at being people is the same. OUTgoods philosophy is high intensity work environment and quick turn around.
While this can result in great success and stressful situations. These stressful situations when done in a small company can have long lasting consequences. With no place to hide burning relationships it seems only has the natural conclusion of people leaving after two years.
How long can a company maintain this?
