Smart companies attract great people. But, even more importantly, they keep them too. They have learnt it’s all about people. It always was. It always will be. They have learnt they have to create a human culture, and not a corporate one.

“Talented people need organisations less than organisations need talented people” — Dan Pink.

Why Are Human-Based Companies The Future?

Smart companies separate themselves from others. They create a culture that is a human-based culture. They put purpose into their workplace, not just a coffee machine. They understand how teams are built, and it’s not by holding an away day. They empower their people, which requires ego-less leadership.

The pioneers have found ways to have great businesses and look after their people. They work differently. They think differently. But they get results. Everything about them works.

These pioneers understand the importance of how humans work best, when they are at their most creative, and most productive. The pioneers have learnt, sometimes the hard way, that the culture they have to build is one for their people to thrive in, and not burn out in.

The badge of honour for who worked the longest no longer strikes a chord with many, and largely, that era has come and gone. Indeed, the most important perks at smart companies are related to their peoples’ wellbeing.

So what do the pioneers do? And why is it working? And, why aren’t more people following their lead? What is the future for how we work? And, what will that mean for your company and mine?

The Do Lectures is fascinated by how the smart companies look after their people better, and do better as a reuslt. And that is why we are holding . It is called It will deliver insights, future strategies, and will examine the zeitgeist for ‘human-based companies’.
