– Yesterday, it was reported that WWE’s creative team is in much better shape since Triple H took over from Vince McMahon earlier this summer and the positive vibes also extend to the production team as well. PWInsider.com reports that the work-life balance of employees has drastically improved citing that many people felt that under McMahon, there was an internal fear that they had to put the company before their own well being because not doing that was going to come back and “bite you” while also hurting your standing. Under McMahon’s leadership, it was described as keeping “your head down” and working away because if Vince was going to work insane hours, it meant you would be expected to do the same, even if it meant keeping your cell phone on at all times and receiving phone calls at all hours of the night.
– Under the new regime led by Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan, the level of stress has greatly lessened and employees have “settled into a new groove” where they are able to do their job but not feel guilty about leaving any stresses related to the job at the office when they finish for the day (at a normal hour). Ultimately, there is a far better balance between work life and home life and it has led to a significant improvement in engagement.
– Another point noted in the story is the experience employees feel when they cross paths with someone in a senior leadership role in an elevator, cafeteria or hallway. Employees report that they can have polite non-work related conversations about their families and personal interests but also be open enough to share concerns about the company whereas previously running into Vince was like “running into the T-Rex from Jurassic Park” as well as an effort to simply not call attention to yourself.
