Employee Quotes A-Z by Author Employee Quotes A-Z by Author

Throughout all the years and in everything we do, we have focused most of all on the development of human capacity, beginning with our own professional staff, and leveraging their expertise to enrich the Arab community. We have embraced the concept of the ‘knowledge worker’ and have sought to empower our people and the Arab world’s people to dream, to imagine, and to create.
Talal Abu-Ghazaleh - Focus - Employee - Knowledge
- Arab - Power - Dreams - Imagination

We call ourselves a “capacity building” organization; self-motivated and self-initiated capacity building. For example, in 30 years, I don’t think I have signed a check for the company.
Talal Abu-Ghazaleh - Employee - Motivational - Management - Companies - Leadership


You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your f**kin' retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street.
George Carlin - Big Business - Stupid - Society - Control - Greed - Dumb - Employee - Jobs - Retirement - Wage - Wall Street

The resentment that criticism engenders can demoralize employees, family members and friends, and still not correct the situation that has been condemned.
Dale Carnegie - Criticism - Employee - Family


The corporation is the “master”, the employee is the “servant”. Because the corporation owns the means of production without which the employee could not make a living, the employee needs the corporation more than vice versa.

Peter Drucker
- Business - Capitalism - Work

Executives owe it to the organization and to their fellow workers not to tolerate nonperforming individuals in important jobs.
Peter Drucker - Leadership - Responsibility - Work - Management


If your thinking is sloppy, your business will be sloppy. If you are disorganized, your business will be disorganized. If you are greedy, your empoyees will be greedy, giving you less and less of themselves and always asking for more.
Michael Gerber - Business - Thinking -
Employee - Greed

The concept of social inclusion in essence means replacing a welfarist approach to helping the underprivileged with one of investing in them and their communities to bring them into the mainstream market economy. It’s a modern and fresh approach that views everyone as a potential wealth creator and invests in their human capital. My reason for adopting such an approach is simple: at a time when Australia needs more skilled people and has an ageing population, we simply can’t afford to have one in ten or more of our people out of the workforce due to unemployment, low skills or the effects of chronic poverty. S
ocial inclusion is an economic imperative.
Julia Gillard - Social - Australia - Economy - Wealth - Skills - Poverty - Help - Employment


In the early days, I didn’t have the money to pay decent salaries, so I didn’t get good people. I got nice people, but I didn’t get good employees.
Louise Hay - Money - Wage - Employee - Good

The company was quite hierarchical. I often think it was like a pyramid with Robert (husband Robert Holmes à Court) at the top and lots of us paying homage to him. I try to turn the pyramid upside down so that I'm at the bottom and bubbling away and encouraging people and energising them so that they are all empowered so that they can do what they need to do, now that's the dream.
Janet Holmes a Court - Encouragement - Leadership - Employees


The faster we grew, the more stores we had open, the more money we made. Employees move quickly up the ranks of a company that's growing fast. Shareholders made a lot of money. If you invested $25,000 from January 1987 to January 1994, you'd have more than a million dollars. I get a lot of personal satisfaction from that.
Wayne Huizenga - Growth - Employee - Money
- Stocks - Companies

I'm going to miss Blockbuster. I'm gonna miss being CEO and all that stuff. We had an atmosphere where everybody was happy. When people make money, they're happy.
Wayne Huizenga - Employee - Money
- Management - Happy

The people who are doing the work are the moving force behind the Macintosh. My job is to create a space for them, to clear out the rest of the organization and keep it at bay.
Steve Jobs - Work - Management

I want my legacy to be greater freedom, greater prosperity and a better way of life for my family, our employees and all Americans. And I wish the same for every nation on earth.
Charles Koch - America - Life - Earth
- Freedom - Family - Employee

We have the best leaders and the most depth of leadership we’ve ever had. If I get hit by a truck, maybe it would get me out of the way and it would go better.
Charles Koch - Management - Leadership - Employee

We strive to hire and retain only those who embrace our MBM® Guiding Principles, which encompass integrity, compliance, value creation, Principled Entrepreneurship, customer focus, knowledge, change, humility, respect and fulfillment.
Charles Koch - Management - Leadership - Employee - Integrity - Customers - Respect

We needed to be uncompromising with our workforce, to expect 100 percent of our employees to comply 100 percent of the time with complex and ever-changing government mandates. Striving to comply with every law does not mean agreeing with every law. But, even when faced with laws we think are counter-productive, we must first comply. Only then, from a credible position, can we enter into a dialogue with regulatory agencies to demonstrate alternatives that are more beneficial. If these efforts fail, we can then join with others in using education and/or political efforts to change the law.
Charles Koch - Laws - Employee - Government - Change

We try to evaluate how much value an employee is creating here and reward them accordingly.
Charles Koch - Employee - Wage


When you consider that a steelworker who’s making $40,000 a year has virtually the same tax burden as someone who’s making $400,000 a year, you see that there are inequities. This administration has used the tax code to accelerate wealth to the top. Most of the tax breaks have gone to people in the top bracket.
Dennis Kucinich - Republican - Jobs - Workers - Tax - Rich - Working Class - Unfair

I always took my role as a leader, and certainly chairman and CEO of a major company very seriously as to our employees and trying to create opportunities for them and create opportunities where they could even, as I said many times, could realize their God-given potential and maybe realize more potential than even they realize they had.
Kenneth Lay - God - Companies
- Employee - Opportunity

In financing growing companies, we always looked for human value that didn’t appear on the balance sheet.. the quality of management, especially its entrepreneurial drive.
Michael Milken - Investing -
Companies - Employee - Management - Entrepreneurs

The profit motive is not only fundamental to our ability to reward shareholders and pay employees; it's fundamental to excellent journalism. Far from corrupting the craft, profits enhance it. Expansion drives diversity and diversity protects and strengthens our craft.
Lachlan Murdoch - Growth - Journalism - Media

The buck stops with me, but I can tick off dozens of very good senior executives that are responsible for hundreds or thousands of people who work for me.

Richard Pratt - Commitment - People - Encouragement - Employee

The art critics on some of Britain's newspapers could as easily have been assigned gardening or travel, and been cheerfully employed for life.
Charles Saatchi - Criticism - Employee


Our mission statement about treating people with respect and dignity is not just words but a creed we live by every day. You can't expect your employees to exceed the expectations of your customers if you don't exceed the employees' expectations of management.
Howard Schultz - Respect - Employee - Customers - Management - Encouragement

I grew up in a working class family where there was no health insurance. I saw first hand the fracturing of the American dream and the bitterness that comes when there is no hope and a lot of despair. So I wanted to build the company, in a sense, that my father never got a chance to work for.
Howard Schultz - Employee - Family - America - Inspirational - Poverty - Companies - Hope


Effective leaders share two intertwined attributes: an unbridled level of confidence about where their organizations are headed, and the ability to bring people along.
Howard Schultz - Leadership - Confidence - Employee

We want passion for our business.. workers who can interpret and execute our mission, who want to build a career, not just take a temporary job.
Howard Schultz - Employee - Passion - Business - Career - Jobs

Hiring people is an art, not a science, and resumes can't tell you whether someone will fit into a company's culture. When you realize you've made a mistake, you need to cut your losses and move on.
Howard Schultz - Employee - Management - Jobs - Decisions - Art - Companies - Culture - Mistakes

It's ironic that retailers and restaurants live or die on customer service, yet their employees have some of the lowest pay and worst benefits of any industry. That's one reason so many retail experiences are mediocre for the public.
Howard Schultz - Earnings - Employee - Customers - Retailing


I've been blessed to find people who are smarter than I am, and they help me to execute the vision I have.
Russell Simmons - Goals - Employee

When you hire me, you hire a nut who is going to work 24 hours a day for you and never, ever burn his audience.
Howard Stern - Employee - Work

Donald Trump - Business - Employee - Commitment

I pay low wages. I can take advantage of that. We're going to be successful, but the basis is a very low-wage, low-benefit model of employment.
Sam Walton - Wage - Greed - Success - Employee

I have never left the company. I keep a tiny residual salary to this day because that's where my loyalty should be forever. I want to be an "employee" on the company data base. I won't engineer, I'd rather be basically retired, due to my family. (talking about his relationship with Apple Inc)
Steve Wozniak - Employee - Commitment - Retirement


Interest rates are going to go up because employment is going to go up. If employment goes up, then our apartments get filled. And if employment goes up, our office buildings get filled. The reality is that increased economic activity combined with increased interest rates is basically bullish for real estate.
Sam Zell - Real Estate - Economy - Employee - Bullish
