Democratic Workplaces

WorldBlu has started a search for the Most Democratic Workplaces.

The WorldBlu Search: November 1, 2006 - February 16, 2007:
The WorldBlu Search for the Most Democratic Workplaces is a GLOBAL search from November 1, 2006 until February 16, 2007 designed to identify organizations from the for-profit, non-profit, government, and education sectors practicing organizational democracy.

Recognizing the Mavericks, Inspiring Others:
We believe there are many highly successful and profitable – yet often unnoticed – examples of democracy in the workplace. These organizations are defying convention, rewriting the rules of business, and pioneering the next generation of organizational design and leadership. The WorldBlu List of Most Democratic Workplaces seeks to shine a spotlight on these champions of freedom and inspire others in the process.

The WorldBlu List of Most Democratic Workplaces 2007:
On March 6, 2007, WorldBlu will announce the first annual WorldBlu List of Most Democratic Workplaces in conjunction with the celebration of Democracy in the Workplace Day.

How it Works:
Organizations apply to have their employees take the online WorldBlu Democratic Workplace Scorecard which measures the degree of organizational democracy in their workplace. The WorldBlu List will be comprised of organizations that took survey and scored at the top level, identifying them as one of the most democratic workplaces in the world. There is no fee to apply.

All Sectors Invited to Participate:
The WorldBlu List is open to any organization from the for-profit, non-profit, government and education sectors, as long as the organization has at least five regular full-time or part-time employees and has been in operation for at least three years.
