Los Angeles, July 16, 2014 – International best-selling author of Optimal Thinking, Rosalene Glickman, Ph.D. and former Fortune 50 President, Richard Guha have a new solution to maximiz revenue and value growth and reduce income inequality: giving every employee $100,000 upon the completion of a top-to-bottom optimization.
Using their proprietary formula, they collaborate with the staff to develop the most compelling, specific financial goals, such as doubling profit or value, and then reward all employees equally. According to Glickman and Guha, “By giving every employee an equal reward of say, $100,000, actual and perceived income inequality are mitigated and more than covered by the growth achieved.”
For example, a 500 employee company that generates $125 million in sales and $12.5 million in profit would grow revenue and margin over five years through optimization. After paying the employees $50 million, a net incremental profit of $13 million is achieved on a 3x company valuation.
While many companies address income inequality by forcible flattening, the problem is most easily resolved by aligning the best interests of companies and employees. When employees bring the best version of themselves to work each day with consistent Optimal Thinking, they take the best actions to achieve what is most important. This people optimization approach empowers the company to maximize growth. The company then reciprocates with meaningful rewards, financial and otherwise.
Many growth programs utilize employee feedback but too often implement acceptable solutions rather than the best solutions. Employee performance issues are addressed in a piecemeal manner with incentives, and the effects are usually fleeting.
While most people want to be their best, they don’t know how. Developed over 27 years with batteries of quantitative tests, Optimal Thinking enables employees to be their best, regardless of the circumstances. Rather than going along with everyday sub-optimal performance derived from sub-optimal thinking, companies sponsor optimization which the employees incorporate in their lives. Individual and company performance are optimized and employee turnover is minimal.
