Kitting out a company office with pool & ping pong tables, the latest
consoles, plasma screens, and fridges full of beers is very
easy. Creating the illusion of a happy open workplace isn’t
difficult. It costs about $3K, and an hour online.
Building a team where everyone is capable of managing their own time
is tricky. Getting to the point where managers trust their team enough
not to grimace and go asking for updates every time a game of pool
starts is very difficult. And you can’t order it online.
