It's time to rebuild the employer-employee relationshipJordan Ridge LLC was developed based in a desire to do great work and build awesome companies. The idea was to loyally support a company as long as needed and then move on when the need was satisfied and returns diminished (the point when an employee just fills a desk and has to look for things to do). That idea has now been expressed by Reid Hoffman, CEO and Founder of LinkedIn better than I ever have.

Reid Hoffman has co-written a book called, The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age. In part, this book describes the disconnect in today’s employer-employee relationship and the relationship framework that is needed to rebuild that relationship. I have posted some highlights here from Mr. Hoffman’s SlideShare executive summary.

At Jordan Ridge LLC we look forward to working with great (or soon to be great) companies in honest, beneficial alliance. See you soon!

Start thinking of employees as ALLIES on a TOUR OF DUTY



Employment should be a MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL ALLIANCE rather than a TRANSACTIONAL RELATIONSHIP



Employer and employee develop a relationship based on how they can ADD VALUE TO EACH OTHER



A tour of duty has a SPECIFIC MISSION with a REALISTIC TIME HORIZON



The tour of duty approach relieves the pressure on you and your employees alike because IT BUILDS TRUST INCREMENTALLY



Employer and employee can “risk” committing to each other over the LONG TERM to pursue bigger payoffs
