Tencent Financial News According to CNBC reports, it is well known that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates are competitors in the business field. Despite this, the two have a lot in common.

In an interview, SpaceX and Tesla's head, Elon Musk, said: "Jobs and Gates are very aggressive, and they are very talented." However, in Musk's view, really let this The two heroes of the business elites who create extremely successful companies are their ability to attract top talent and earn employee loyalty.

Musk explained: "The ability to attract and motivate talents is a crucial factor for a company's success, because a company is a group of people who come together to create products or services.

Although this concept may seem simple, finding and hiring top talent is still a daunting task, which is why more and more companies are trying to recruit talents outside of standard pay. Over time, in order to attract talents, companies are becoming more and more versatile, and it is becoming more and more common to allow pets to go to work and lunches that can satisfy all tastes, especially in the absence of talent. industry.

For example, Microsoft built three tree houses at Redmond's headquarters in Red County, Seattle, Washington, for employees to meet and have meals and breaks. In addition, employees here enjoy the benefits of an organic spa, pet insurance, and a free commuter shuttle. Apple's employees at the Cupertino headquarters in California can enjoy discounts on our products and conduct on-site health checks at the company.

Such benefits may seem too extravagant, but the results speak for themselves. Apple and Microsoft are always the workplaces that job seekers dream of.

However, in order to retain top talent, it is not enough for companies to provide free benefits. Business experts point out that employees who feel they are contributing to the company's shared vision are more productive and aggressive than their colleagues.

For example, during the initial period of Microsoft, all employees held stock options. This incentive encourages employees to become innovative thinkers. In 2003, with the successful listing of Microsoft, many "Microsoft Millionaires" were born. (Since then, Microsoft has withdrawn this incentive.)

At Apple, Jobs allows employees to participate in the decision-making process. The late founder has created different teams to work on projects with breakthrough potential. When they report on the team's findings, Jobs will listen carefully to all their ideas and then choose the best ideas.

Although Jobs can sometimes be a demanding manager, his management strategy is based on creating the most innovative products that motivate his employees and win their support.

According to reports, Musk used his own unique strategy to motivate his employees to make themselves feel part of a larger team at SpaceX. The billionaire entrepreneur asked executives to “selflessly” lead their employees forward.

In an interview, Musk said: "We want our leaders to find ways to motivate the team, reduce noise at work and help remove obstacles. If you are a manager or executive at SpaceX, we hope you know you The team you lead is not working for you. Instead, you are serving your team and helping them get the job done as well as possible."
