REINVENTING MANAGEMENT IN THE FINANCIAL WORLD
Financial services are often seen as the first place in which short-termism, an aggressive focus on returns and shareholder capitalism reign supreme. Along the years this attitude has arguably brought endless series of layoffs and a tendency to prioritize the interests of those owning the company over customers and even more employees.
Dutch firm Viisi is the living proof something else is emerging. For more than 10 years, its 40 employees experimented with next-generation management practices that dramatically rewrite how this market functions through totally transparent, incentivation-free, growth independent salaries, 10% of the shares reserved to employees, no layoffs during the pandemic and teams organized in self-managed circles with elected coordinators.
