We Won! Great Recognition For The Entire Movement!
WE WON!! Monday in London we won one of the Thinkers50 awards: the so-called Oscars of Management Thinking. It was a great honor to be awarded the Radar Award; the award for best up-and-coming new thinkers.
It's a fight worth fighting
It is awesome to be recognized for the work we have done together with all of you. Our many voices are heard and becoming louder and louder. If we continue to commit, we can make a dent in the universe. Together we can win the fight for a new and better way of doing business.
Work should no longer be about profit maximization, shareholder value, command-and-control, and expansion-at-all-cost. It's time for a new way of doing business that fits the challenges and problems of the 21st century.
It's worth fighting for. Work should no longer be about profit maximization, shareholder value, command-and-control, and expansion-at-all-cost. It's time for a new way of doing business that fits the challenges we face today.
There is a lot to be done, but know that we are fighting the good fight. Know that we are on the right track as we continue to reach more people and as a result inspire more companies to adopt better and more humane ways of working.
Thanks for being a collaborator, supporter and believer in changing workplaces for the better! Your work is extremely important 🙏.

In 2005, Vineet Nayar became the leader of Indian IT and consulting company HCL Technologies. As a result, 25,000 people looked up to him and waited for his direction. But there was a problem. "I knew in my heart that we as leaders had done nothing to win the trust of our employees."
