Abstract

Around 80 percent of workers say that their first step towards improving job performance has nothing to do with the job itself, but is based on how they feel about themselves. This is a lesson that has been taken to heart by Sargento Foods Inc. which, for the last 50 years, has remained loyal to the philosophy of its founder, Leonard Gentine Sr: “Hire good people and treat them like family.”
