“Your culture – your opinion matters!” This is the title of the e-mail that 2,900 employees of the Children’s Hospital Zurich found in their inbox. Sender: Dr. Georg Schäppi, CEO of Children’s Hospital Zurich. Via a link, staff could vote on the introduction of first name culture. “By this we mean that employees in all professional groups and hierarchies generally use first names,” Schäppi explains in the letter. A two-thirds majority is required for introduction.
