The Dutch Corporate Rebels Book is in Stores Now! (And One More Thing)
This is a proud moment for us: today we publish "Corporate Rebels - Make work more fun" in our home country. The Dutch version is available now!
It took about three years to write the book. When, in 2017, we signed a book deal with publisher Business Contact, it was only a year after starting Corporate Rebels.
Since we published the English version, reviews on social media and beyond have been amazing. On both Amazon and Goodreads, ratings are 4.6 out of 5. Plus, we topped Amazon's bestseller charts in various countries!
Now, we're proud to the lessons we learned from progressive workplaces in Dutch too.

Social capital and social networks are becoming increasingly important in today’s economy at large, and for individuals within organisations. For my MSc dissertation in Organisational Psychology, I researched how newcomers transition into a self-managing organisation (Lee & Edmondson, 2017), an organisation where authority is decentralised and classic manager-subordinate relationships are absent.
It’s all about your people. Now more than ever. But in knee-jerk reactions to the coronavirus many companies are laying off large numbers. I want to shout out to the shareholder-value managers driven by their spreadsheets: “This is not only inhumane. It is bad for your business!”. Why? It will harm your company. Companies that treat their people best in bad times emerged as winners in the past.
"Nothing reveals character like a crisis." We wrote this recently and, as predicted, during the Corona crisis, companies revealed their true colors. Recently, we highlighted the bad. So let's turn to the good, and highlight organizations that not only talk about putting people first, but also walk their talk. Let's applaud those that put their money where their mouth is in difficult times.
