Nothing is quite so annoying as a person who says, ” do as I say, not as I do.”  In this article we look at Silicon Valley companies that are opposed to strong borders to protect a country’s culture but are ruthless when it comes to the protection of their individual company culture.

Ask a startup CEO what the most important thing at his company is, and you’re likely to hear something about the “company culture” — a unique blend of values and workplace norms that give startups their unique vibe.

It’s something that tech companies are very proud of, particularly in Silicon Valley

….Valley startups understand the importance of culture to an organisation’s success. Indeed, tech companies take company cultures so far that they turn into borderline cults.

Some would argue that a company’s culture is even more important than the skills and experience of senior hires. Indeed, it’s now accepted practice for potential employees to be rejected because hiring managers don’t think they’d be a “good fit” in the company’s atmosphere.

Which of course makes sense. Different companies work differently and no one culture is the perfect fit for every startup.

…Every startup CEO knows this and takes pride in his company’s distinctiveness. Many believe that it is precisely their company culture that affords them a competitive edge.

CEOs often hire a small percentage of “bad fits” on purpose, in order to avoid groupthink in long-established teams — say, 2.5 to 5 per cent. But any more than that starts tearing the company apart, causing it to lose its edge and flavour.

If you agree with me that’s nice, but what I really want to achieve is to make you question the status quo, look between the lines and do your own research. Do not be a passive observer in this game we call life.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

Police Commissioner Mike Bush has admitted the police force has been influenced by unconscious bias in their relations with Maori.

But he says police have recognised the problem and have made positive steps to address it.

“I think like any good organisation, you have to recognise that there can be some unconscious bias in your organisation. We’ve recently started some training with the executive, which will filter through the rest of the organisation, because the first thing you have to do is acknowledge that it exists.” Read more »

An adventure of a lifetime!

One of our readers shared this with me, and I thought it was time for another bit of truth-through-humour that the lefties and terrorists don’t like.

A. Go to  Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq  or Iran illegally. Never mind immigration quotas, visas, international law, or any of that nonsense. Demand a free house, benefits and food.

B. Once there, demand that the local government provide free medical care for you and your entire family.

C. Demand that all nurses and doctors be fluent in English, and that all food be cooked according to your specifications in the hospital.

D. Demand free local government forms, bulletins, etc. Be printed in English.

E. Procreate abundantly.

F. Deflect any criticism of this allegedly irresponsible reproductive – Behaviour with, ‘It is a cultural thing; you wouldn’t understand.’ Read more »
