Who are the Corporate Rebels?

About Corporate Rebels

Back in January 2016, we (Joost & Pim) quit our corporate jobs. Like most people, we worked in outdated workplaces characterized by inertia, bureaucracy and a lack of motivation. We simply couldn’t accept that the world of work – for far too many – is a place full of misery and despair.

In order to fight those dreadful workplaces, we started this blog – Corporate Rebels. By checking off our Bucket List, we visit the world’s most inspiring workplaces. We combine those practical insights with academic findings from our PhD research. Along the way, we share everything we learn.

Our work has been featured in media outlets like The New York Times, Forbes, The Huffpost, BBC and The Guardian. Along the way, we’ve been nominated for several awards and listed among the “Top 30 Emergent Management Thinkers” by the Thinkers50 Institute.


Over the years, Corporate Rebels has grown into much more than just a blog. By expanding our activities we’ve been able to grow our impact around the world.

Here’s an overview of the things we mostly do.
