Oh, the Joys

26 July 2007

From an economics paper on manager-employee communications on my desk at the moment:

Although managers try a wide variety of communication strategies, … the most successful strategy is quite simple: Explicitly request that all employees choose a high effort level, emphasize the mutual benefits of coordinating at a high effort level, and assure the employees that they are being paid well (although it is not necessary to actually pay them well).

Sometimes, copyediting makes you feel dirty –’cause you’re working for The Man.

(Surprisingly enough, except for stuff like this, I really like this project.)
