Our corporate philosophy
We want to keep our internal organization efficient, flexible and lean. The basis for this is Holacracy, a new type of organizational system that promotes individual responsibility and the rapid adaptability of the company.
Holacracy vs. Hierarchy.
We rely on a flat organization
Holacracy takes powers traditionally reserved for executives and managers and distributes them to all employees.
In a traditional hierarchy, levels of leadership determine how projects are approved and controlled.
