New People Partnership


Bruce Pasternack and Albert Viscio, authors of The Centerless Corporation



New Company-Employee Relationship for the New Knowledge Economy

New People Partnership is the full implementation of the new realities that exist between the corporation and its employees. The business environment in today's economy changes fast, so does the dynamics of relationships between employer and employee. Companies can no longer guarantee lifetime job security. Advanced skills are increasingly required by firms, yet these skills are what make employees more mobile in the marketplace. Thus, the employee partnership emerged as a new form in-company relationships and employee empowerment.

Establish a New Environment

At all levels, your company needs people who can deliver at the frontier of performance. They must understand where your company is going and be able to influence this path. They must share in your company's fortunes and be motivated to push for greater achievements.

"New People Partnership" will help you attract this vital resource. Recognizing that lifetime employment is no longer feasible, this "partnership" involves a mutual commitment to establishing the environment for learning, self-leadership, and for ongoing employability. In essence, the New People Partnership is a fresh perspective that dictates that the company owns the work rather than the employee's career.

 Dell Inc.

"The best way I know to establish and maintain a healthy, competitive culture is to partner with your people through shared objectives and a common strategy," writes  Michael Dell, the Founder of Dell Inc. in his book Direct from Dell. "Connecting with the outside world keeps you aware. Connecting with your people your most valuable asset is the way to keep your business and your people healthy and strong."

"Once a reporter asked me which of our competitors represented the biggest threat to Dell. I said the greatest threat to Dell wouldn't come from a competitor. It would come from our people. It hasn't been easy, trying to maintain the entrepreneurial spirit that has characterized Dell as our company has grown bigger (in terms of headcount) and more complicated (by way of infrastructure). Nor has it been easy to maintain the energy of a focused team, as we expanded around the world. But my goal has always been to make sure that everyone at Dell feels they are a part of something great something special perhaps something even greater than themselves."... More
