The Corporate Rebels Webshop Is Live!
Today, we're launching the official Corporate Rebels webshop—the perfect place to order our books and merchandise.

Corporate Rebels Shop
The shop aims to increase the impact of both Corporate Rebels and the Corporate Rebels Foundation. It's a way to spread the global movement to an ever-widening audience while simultaneously raising money to end inhumane workplaces.
Through our webshop, you can purchase our book and its many translated versions. Plus, it's where you can buy an official Corporate Rebels t-shirt, hoodie, sweatshirt, tote bag or thermos bottle.
It works like this:
- You buy responsible merchandise to make a subtle yet bold statement for better workplaces.
- We donate 100% of the merchandise profits (books excluded) to the Corporate Rebels Foundation.
- We make your purchase carbon negative as we compensate 10x the CO2 emissions of your product's lifecycle.
That's definitely what we call a win-win.
As you probably would have guessed, we care about working conditions. That's why all the merchandise we sell is sourced and manufactured responsibly. We only work with brands that run their business properly, taking care of people and the planet.
Painful lesson: finding truly responsible businesses to work with wasn't as easy as you'd think!
For more information on the brands we work with (Stanley/Stella, Retulp and Econscious), visit the about page of the shop.
We learned lots of interesting lessons on how to set up a responsible merchandise webshop. And we'll soon share those lessons in a behind-the-scenes blog post.
But for now, head on over to the webshop and get your hands on some official Corporate Rebels merch.
These days, there seems to be a massive interest in less hierarchical, more liberated approaches to work. “Agile,” sociocracy, Holacracy, “teal,” self-management, and other management techniques are now of great interest to a growing number of companies around the world.
People in commercial companies used to think of those working in charities as well-meaning hippies. And those in not for profits viewed their private sector brethren as individualistic, sales-driven sociopaths who struggle to see beyond their bonuses.
Recently, a CEO told us something along the lines of this: "I am trying to set a bit of a frame for a remuneration conversation—for myself and other leaders. One way of talking about it is the ‘appropriate´ ratio of lowest to highest paid, from the front lines to CEO. I also recall you saying that if you ask employees what they think, the usual response is in the order of 6 to 8 times. Is my memory accurate? Are you aware of any empirical basis for this? Or have I made it up?!"
