Being ourselves involved with investigating new organisational structures and workflow we have decided to focus on employment-related topics in our newsletter today.
We will take a closer look at human resources, which means at the dissonances between different stakeholders, not only highlighting the entrepreneur’s perspective but also giving voice to those having not (yet) reached the executive suite today.
Read more about hot topics of debate such as organizations with healthy company culture or our proposal of an “Applicants Bill of Rights“ just as ethical standards for unpaid internships.
