2,800 of 4,400 Employees Are Stylists

Back to the article from yesterday (click here).

This is one of the staffing differences I see between catalog clients & online brands ... online brands tend to trust people & give 'em more autonomy ... especially younger employees. Catalog brands (not all) tend to employ a top-down structure. I asked a 30ish employee at a "digital" company what her goals and objectives are ... she told me she doesn't have goals or objectives and her boss does not assign her work ... it's her job to grow the business as she sees fit.

It's not only the business models that are fundamentally different ... it's the style of work that is fundamentally different, too.
