In this digital age, we are more connected than ever. At the same time, being able to make your voice heard or establishing a genuine human connection is becoming harder to accomplish. Both are necessary to tackle the challenges our society is facing now and in the future. There are three areas where we as an organization feel we can contribute to help people connect and be heard.
No managers, no job descriptions
We want to work together as equals. Managers and job descriptions get in the way.
That’s why we ditched both and started building systems that facilitate working together as equals.
Our 1% connectivity tax
Communication has to be accessible, reliable, and private. And yet, about 34% of the world population is not able to structurally use the great enabler of communication: the internet.
We donate our self imposed 1% connectivity tax to 48percent.org to help close the digital divide.
Open web, open code
We don’t work for shareholders or investors. We work for our clients.
This enables us to build technology which is open source and free to be used by others.
It also enables us to fight for equal & open access to the web, because we feel the web should be open and transparent.
As a customer, you are a supporter of our work. That’s why we want to be transparent about our performance, our impact, and how we spend our time and money.
We have inspired more than 250.000 people with articles, books, and keynotes discussing the way we are organized.
More than 17.000 people have benefitted from the work of 48percent.org.
We develop technology that connects and the best way to do that is together.
Being diverse is a fact and inclusivity is a necessity. We believe that everything we do gets better with multiple perspectives and we strive to provide equitable opportunities for everyone.
By simply existing, a business has a CO2 footprint. We try to minimize ours and compensate for what remains.
You are not just a Voys customer, you are also a contributor. That’s why we like to be open about how we spend the money you pay us every month.
