How to Run your Office like a Vegas Casino

“Culture” is a huge word in business these days, stolen of course from the world of yoghurt

Here are 7 Lessons taken from Vegas Casinos (visited on a recent Vegas speaking gig) you can apply to increase productivity…in descending order of effectiveness:

  1. Serve free alcohol all day – it will make people a lot “happier” and they will bring truth in the room faster (people tell the truth when drunk).
  2. Make your screen savers more exciting – with flashing lights, moving animals and lots of ker-ching noises (it will encourage people to check their emails).
  3. Have bouncers standing around to eject negative people.
  4. Remove all windows so people can’t get cold, don’t waste time staring out and most importantly will not know if they are working into the dark, especially when coupled with…
  5. Remove all clocks – an additional benefit is that meetings will last as long as they need to last, making them a lot shorter.
  6. Pump in oxygen – keeping people fresh, alert and breathing.
  7. Whenever anyone wins – a customer, achieves something big or even small, have them yell, jump around and hug everyone in their vicinity.

Let me know which ones you go for

With my love and best wishes – all on Black

    Hi David

    I work in Macau, the Chinese Vegas, so this resonates.

    If you are in Macau, I would add an 8th: making (and losing) money is a serious business. Enjoying yourself is not an option, it detracts from the serious nature of the work.

  3. Thanks David, Number 5 for sure, I have just had a weekend of data and time deprevation! I have not used a phone or computer all weekend at an amazing happy summer camp in Sussex. Check it out the 2015 camp will be in creation soon. No time really does keep you in the moment, a key to getting things done. Write I’m off to create…
