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:

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.

But now, with more and more IoT technologies, what will become the most influential management model of the future?
Maria Popova writes, “The history of the world is the history of telling others who and what we are—from tribal markings to national flags to family crests to pronoun-specifying email signatures.” How we choose to tell our stories—and what artifacts we choose to highlight—alters the way we hear our past, experience our present, and create our future.
Just over 5 years ago we quit our corporate jobs to start Corporate Rebels. Our mission was simple: to make work more fun. And it hasn’t changed. Five years later, it’s fair to ask: "Where do we now stand in the workplace revolution"?
