Ricardo Semler and Semco

In Brazil, on the factory floor and in the office, workers at the SEMCO manufacturing and services conglomerate pretty much call their own shots. Some might call it Anarchic Socialism, maybe others, cutting-edge capitalism – whatever, it’s certainly paying financial dividends. Indeed, it’s so successful that it’s unorthodox “worker participation” approach is being extended to other fields as well. Well you might ask is there anything this bold Brazilian experiment could teach us here in Australia? Imagine if you will, students sacking their teachers!
