from Bedouin to billionaire

I just thought the tale told of Mohed Altrad, World Entrepreneur of the Year, was an interesting one. Marching to his own drummer has proved a success that he measures according to the happiness of his employees.

"You can ask why I am doing this," he says. "It has never been for money. I am trying to develop a humanistic venture to make the people who work for me happy."
"If they are happy, they are more efficient, better performers, they have a better life." That—he says—is what companies ought to aim for. "If I am happy, I work well."

  1. I bet he gets called commie or socialist for fudging the defining goal of capitalism against the dominant trend. But i think i'll call him a hero.
