My first month as Sales Executive at Ibuildings is over. And I’ve already learned a lot!
Six kilos of plastic waste became this sperm whale fatal. We have seen or read dozens, if not hundreds, of such messages. And every time you think, at least I do: now something really has to change! In privacy and in our organization! At Ibuildings we think about that too. How environmentally conscious and sustainable are we really?
Many people think the purpose of a business is to make money. The more money the company makes, the better it goes,' is the thought. Many annual plans are made based on 30% more turnover or 10% more profit. Until a few years ago, we also worked in the same way at Ibuildings. With a larger company with more profit, the rest would be fine on its own. But that’s not how it works, I noticed with myself.
At Ibuildings we work together and organise our work according to the principles of Holacracy. So without a top-down structure. With a work environment in which everyone is responsible for their own work, within appointed roles. But what does Holacracy mean in practice?
