How committed are you to the employees in your business? How far will you go for them?
I was reading this story yesterday, and it refers to magazines as small businesses. Its lessons, I think, may apply to any small business: Will you stand by the work of your people, even if they are being questioned by the outside world?
When you're small enough that everything you or anyone in your company does represents the brand, how far will everyone go to protect everyone else? In a nutshell, as a quote from the piece states: "You are responsible for your employees. They in return are responsible for you."
