He accomplishes this integration through a combination of teamwork and realizing that the spiritual welfare of his employees is important, not only for the employee, but the company as a whole. Mr. Bismark understands that an unhappy stressed out employee will not provide the level of service needed to customers or be very productive. His philosophy of treating everyone with respect and encouraging a sense calm peacefulness is a refreshing change in the usually cutthroat world of business and his employees love him for it.
Mr. Bismark’s time as a monk has clearly left a lasting impression on him and he utilizes the philosophy he learned there to develop ways to resolve performance issues that have developed in business. Can one man change the way business is done and make the work place better for everyone? If that man is Joseph Bismark he just might.
