A NOBLE OBJECT LESSON. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 January 1914
A NOBLE OBJECT LESSON. Our Sydney correspondent writes: -The visit to Sydney of Sir William Lever aind his son has brought into prominence one of the most success ful of modern experiments on a large scale for the maintenance of humane relations betwveen employer and em ployed. Some of the root principles of this magnificent object lesson are suggestive, as well as being self-evi dently true. "You can't expect mord than a mechanical performance of their duties from your employees if they have not an interest in the re sults." That is thb basic assuinp tion. Of course, there are some men sutficilently conscientious to do good work whether they make any pecuni ary profit by it or not. But, dbviously, these are exceptional, and we nmust take human niature in the mass, as we find it. At Port Sunlight, the benefi cence of the proprietary does not stop at sharing profits with employes. It provides for them healthy dwellings, and unexceptionable facilities for self improvement and recreati...
