Seven-day Weekend by Ricardo Semler Seven-day Weekend, Paperback (February 2004)

A new way of working has emerged at Semco: hammocks where people rest during the day, Retire-a-Little Plans, the end of the head office, and more. The results: inordinate success for 20 years, and an organization that covers an enormous range of business activity. This book tells the fascinating and unlikely story of how this can be achieved.

Author Biography - Ricardo Semler

Ricardo Semler took over his father's company, Semco (founded in 1954), at the age of 19. Not only did he turn the company round, he made it an outstanding success. On the brink of bankruptcy in 1980, Semco achieved revenues of $34 million in 1993 - and $160 million in 2000. Semler threw out the rule book: for example, workers make their own decisions; every corporate decision is put to the vote; people turn up to the meetings they want to be at. It sounds insane: but it works.
