Benchmark: One Big Happy Family

Advertisement

We asked 1997 Inc. 500 conference attendees about their priorities and people management skills. The vast majority felt they treated employees fairly. So who's getting the short end of the stick? Seems as if it's the families of entrepreneurs. Forty-eight percent of the CEOs surveyed admitted to putting their companies ahead of their families.
