We are thrilled to be on the WorldBlu’s list for the second consecutive year and to help spread their mission to make businesses rethink their management models and adopt a democratic style.”
The WorldBlu List of Most Democratic Workplaces ™ is organized by WorldBlu, an Austin-based social enterprise. The 44 company list is made up of organizations that demonstrate the practice of ten democratic principles, including transparency, dialogue and listening, integrity, accountability, and choice on a leadership, individual, and systems and processes level. Employees from participating organizations were given a survey based on a decade of research on what makes a world-class democratic workplace. The first WorldBlu Awards ceremony will be held June22-23 in Las Vegas, sponsored by Zappos Insights.
“Nothing has proven the need for a new model of business as definitively as the current economic crisis,” says WorldBlu Founder and CEO, Traci Fenton. “These democratic companies model how giving power to their people, especially during challenging economic times, can increase innovation and engagement while boosting the bottom-line.”
