Netflix writes the new rules of work


Former Netflix Chief Talent Officer Patty McCord had a big hand in creating the refreshing and successful corporate culture at Netflix. She joined Salon to unpack her new book, “Powerful: Building a Culture of Freedom and Responsibility,” which highlights her guiding principles for building a high-performing workplace culture. Refining lessons from her 14 years at Netflix, McCord offers a fresh perspective on why it’s time to rewrite the tired rules of work.

“If you're coming into the workforce and you think you're gonna join a firm that's gonna take care of you for the next 40 years and continuously promote you and increase your value, you are wrong,” McCord told Salon. According to McCord, this type of employer-employee relationship is in the past. Watch the video above to learn how she is inspiring a more efficient workplace culture and reconfiguring human resources departments. “We don't need moms. We don't need rule keepers. We don't need somebody to give us permission. And we don't need somebody to police us,” she said.
