A business that exemplifies Theory Y is Google.  Google gives its students a lot of freedom and makes sure they enjoy their work.

A Theory Y business emphasizes employees.  These businesses look at employees as independent, and assume that they enjoy their work.  Work is self-fulfilling, and self-actualizing.  These businesses do not micromanage their employees, because they prefer them to be creative and take ownership of their work.

Google gives employees flexibility.  It makes sure the workplace is comfortable, with everything from chiropractors to cereal bars.  It also allows for employees to be creative, because Google wants them to be creative.  Employees are motivated to stay and be productive.
