A Startup We Should All Get Behind: “Q” wants to be “The Best Employer”
June 18, 2015
Finally! This site writes a lot about startups behaving badly (The Sociopathic Business Model™) but here’s one that’s doing it right. Managed by “Q” co-founders Saman Rahmanian and Dan Teran get it-if employers treat their employees well it increases accountability, productivity, marketability and profitability, ethically which is what I found when I completed the first beta test for The MMpiHer Method™. A company can have both ethics and profits, it doesn’t have to be a choice.
MmpiHer Method’s™ proprietary system, working with your entire team, determines the necessary changes (first month), helps to fully implement those changes (second month), and provides the necessary tools for your team to become self-sufficient while successfully replicating the process (third month). Our team is a resource for life, and the quarterly tune ups, will help your team quickly identify, and fix potential weaknesses before they become problems.
The MMpiHer Method™ sustainably and drastically improves the overall work environment, regardless of industry or the size of the company. The beta test* 2+ years after the program:
- 40% Total employee accountability increased
- 25% Total employee productivity increased
- 45% Company marketability increased
- 30% Total revenue increased
- 97% Total employee retention
- 95% Positive customer feedback
- 100% Current employees recommend their company as a great place to work

It also appears “Q” understands they can respect their employees and create profit it doesn’t have to be choice, a company can do both, ethically.
“Q” — as its employees refer to it — takes a tech-enabled approach to cleaning. Its business customers rely on it to keep track of cleaning and office supplies, request handymen, and schedule cleanings. It’s all managed via an iPad.
Q offers a starting wage of $12.50 per hour in New York, for example, plus benefits like 401k plans, flexible hours and even free college courses. Wages for maintenance duties start at $40 per hour.
“We realized fairly early on that in order to deliver the best quality of service, we needed to be the best employer,” said Q co-founder Dan Teran, 26.
On Thursday, the startup closed $15 million in a Series A round of funding led by RRE Ventures. It also announced its expansion to San Francisco, where over 200 companies were already on the waitlist. (It was previously available in New York and Chicago.) CNNMoney
As we’ve seen with many unethical startups who raise millions and that don’t recognize the rights of their employees, like Uber, it’s the trigger for The Sociopathic Business Model™ and it’s nice to see a company like Managed by Q ethically promoting employees, consumers, and investors by pulling away from the fraudulent startup model that all too often is encouraged, replicated and rewarded.
