(Results-Only Work Environment) An approach to managing employees from CultureRx ( that emphasizes results. Founded by Cali Ressler and Jody Thompson, former managers at Best Buy, where ROWE was introduced, CultureRx is based on their book "Why Work Sucks and How to Fix It."

In a ROWE, there is no set time or place. Employees work when and where they wish as long as the work gets done. Obviously, this is not for sales clerks at retail counters, who must always be present; however, flextime, telecommuting and mobile technologies can turn countless 9-to-5 jobs into a results-only environment. See telecommuting.
