《海底捞你学不会》读后感

《海底捞你学不会》是Charlie推荐给我阅读的一本好书。 像看故事书一样看完了,真是一部辛酸史。里面的员工刷碗的洗烂了手,上菜的脚磨出了泡,值夜班的还要能劝架甚至要有跟胡搅蛮缠的人斗智斗勇的胆……可是他们却对海底捞无比忠诚,为自己能在海底捞工作感到无比自豪,好神奇……作者在书中多次称海底捞的老板张勇为“神”。 张勇“神”的地方在于,给员工授权,充分信任员工,给予他们在别处无法得到的东西。员工对自己的工作产生了自豪感,愿意花更多心思去把工作做出彩。都说“众人拾柴火焰高”,团队的智慧累积起来成就了海底捞。 书中有一句话:“组织行为学说,人与组织的关系实际上也是人与人的关系。人们因为某些人离开,也是因为某些人进来。”仔细想想,确实是这样。加入CCJK,确实也是因为某些人,这些人包括老板、上司、HR还有有着良好精神面貌的大家。 记得来公司面试的时候,先是看见了坐在门口附近的同事们,觉得大家精神面貌很好,推断公司氛围不错,产生好感。后来Dande接待了我,第一印象就是,聪明伶俐,后来发现,果不其然。然后见到了Charlie,第一印象,有料!~~心想,上司这么nice,工作起来会比较愉快,不用天天提心吊胆。最后见了Ben和Alan,当初的场景,也挺幽默的。Ben坐下来和我谈,Alan拿了袋茶叶进来说:“你们谈,我泡茶。”其实我知道,他的潜台词是“你们谈,我拍板”。 从面试的开始到结束,都能感觉到公司友好愉快的氛围,这种氛围大概也是吸引大家的原因之一吧。难怪大家都说来CCJK之后就长胖,大概也是心宽体胖的缘故~~ 接CCJK的offer之前,有段小插曲。另一家公司坚持要我去面试,也是翻译管理岗位,是总经理和副总经理一遍过地面,面完让我第二天去上班,期望工资能满足。听着也蛮诱人的,但是我竟然犹豫了,借口提前休假,想给自己多一些思考和选择的时间,其实还是惦记着CCJK。他们这么迅速地决定聘用我,主要是因为副总经理觉得我对她的路,有原则,不是墙头草,没事可以跟她吵吵架,吵完又不计较。 因为此次选择对我来说会是一个转折,所以我参考了家人的意见,和他们说:“有两家公司让我去,工作差不多,一家喜欢吵架,另一家喜欢泡茶。吵架的工资高些,泡茶的离家近些。”最后家人一致认为,工作要身心愉快才能长久,不必计较一时的得失,相对宽容的环境更利于成长。于是,我选择了CCJK。 看完了《海底捞》,我更觉得自己的选择是正确的。被拒掉的那家公司,可能正是老板亲历亲为的类型,不被信任的滋味,肯定不会好受。 估计很快又要长胖了~~
