“We’ve inverted the values of governance,” say President Jacques Guénette. “Normally what you hear in the
marketplace is that the corporation must create value for the shareholders. That provides license to do almost
anything, including crazy business plans that call for uncontrollable growth.”
“We’ve turned that around completely, and said, let’s put together an organization that creates value for the
employees. Let’s make sure that our employees are happy,” says Mr. Guénette. “The first consequence of this
is that they stick around, gain experience and get very good at what they do. And that allows us to
manufacture excellent products, and to deliver very good services. The result is that we create a lot of value
for our clients in that process. And once you’ve done that, there should be value for the shareholders.
“We’ve found,” he says understatedly, “that this works much better than the other model.”
