"WORK HARD, PLAY HARD." AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH DAVID BEHNKE, CPM, PRESIDENT OF SIEGEL-GALLAGHER MANAGEMENT COMPANY, AMO.

* What is a day like at Siegel-Gallagher Management Company (SGMC)?

At SGMC, we are results-oriented, success-driven and hard-working. We establish key performance indicators in congruence with the company's goals. All employees are expected to perform at their finest in order to produce consistently positive results. These are all factors that drive our business successfully. But at the end of the day, it's time for a beer. Every Friday afternoon at 3:30, we host "Beer-30." We work hard, but we understand the need to have fun.

These Tweets consist of "memorable moments" (MOMs) and "opportunities for improvement" (OFIs). This gives employees the opportunity to showcase their achievements and share their suggestions. Every suggestion is an opportunity for improvement and is reviewed by SGMC's Executive Committee. Each month, the top three Tweets are voted on. Winners receive a cash prize and are entered into a drawing for a Caribbean vacation. We are almost to the end of the program and it has been a success.
