I found this article on the web tonight and thought it would share it.  James J. Schiro, C.E.O. of Zurich Financial Services is using the Internet to communicate with employees, and cut costs.

I love Zappos.com (online shoe company) because they are a company that treats their employees well and thinks outside the box.  Not to mention they have fanatical customer service (Google it).  Their CEO/COO have a blog where they explain that they learned everything they know about business from poker.  I think this one is a must read.  OK this has to be my last post for a while, I gotta get to work on other things.
