When a Best Buy store does well, the employees share in the spoils. To motivate employees, the mega-consumer electronics chain’s store managers hand out bonus checks to celebrate profits.
Plus, at some of the stores, employees—who sell computers, TVs, appliances and high-tech gadgets—blow off steam by competing on video games and foosball tables in the break room. Some managers allow employees to stick around after the store closes to watch football games and movies on the giant-screen TVs they sell.
At its Minnesota headquarters, Best Buy employees set their own hours as long as they complete all of their work, through the company’s “Results-Only Work Environment” policy.
Each year, 2,000 Best Buy supervisors travel to Phoenix to try out new games and gadgets before they go on sale during the holiday season.
