According to a senior manager, Stan is the main founder of Henry Schein. He has a deep influence, and he gets involved with the lives of TSM. As Schein grew larger, and its operations have spread far and wide, Bergman felt that TSM should shift its headquarters for engaging with other senior leaders including him. Every day he visits more than 50 Schein locations for group discussions about various company issues, and he is quite adept at maintaining personal relations within the company. Bergman and several other senior executives went some way far for recognizing personal events of the company. Bergman’s daughter got a video message and a birthday card from Gerry Benjamin on her birthday. Her 25 year anniversary was celebrated with all other members of the company.
Another notable point is that Bergman asked EMC to cut down his bonuses, because it was relatively too high as compared with the other members of the same company. EMC set an example of work culture across many dimensions. Several good members of Schein has been lost due to the death of various dedicated cadres. Every individual had their unique way of forming personal relations with people. The interview process of Team Schein is known as fit. It is a process that determines if a candidate would be suitable for working with the company. Along with the qualifications and work expertise, every individual is also tested on how far they would be able to adjust with the culture of the company. The manager does not meet the interviewee directly but asks another assistant to bring the interviewee to the doorstep. Later on, the same assistant is asked about the behavior of the interviewee. In this way, the candidates are chosen or eliminated.
