8 trends data
I have a few questions re your 8 trends of highly progressive workplaces. I hope you don’t mind answering.
I know this was based on talking with 150 organisations but can you tell me:
Was this a good cross-section of different industries? Also private, public or 3rd?
What was the range of number employees?
Were any well-known brands involved?
Many thanks for your help.
There's a wide variety of organizations on our list. Private companies, listed companies, governmental organizations, non-profits, foundations, etc. Number of employees range from few (around 5) to many (around 75,000), and there's all shapes and sizes in between. Yes, well-known brands were involved as well, for example Spotify, Google, Haier.
For more info, check out our Bucket List (corporate-rebels.com/bucketlist) were you can also select on industry and location.
Not sure what you mean with the numbers on the scale. Can you elaborate?
In 2012, Haier gave 12,000 managers a choice: "you can leave, or join our new structure." Some left, many stayed and joined one of 4,000 small independent companies within Haier—the so-called 'microenterprises' (MEs). Many academics, management gurus and other companies were amazed with how the ME structure stimulated entrepreneurship. So why the hell would Haier fiddle with it's structure, again?
Yash Pakka is a compostable tableware manufacturer in Faizabad, Uttar Pradesh. Their products are made from sugarcane waste and are 100% compostable, and the factory is even powered by its own power grid that uses rice husk as fuel. But they’re innovative not just in terms of what they make, but how they organise.
