What people say about us

We will never give up Sociocracy […] We have better motivated people; [our clients] know that we want to listen to them and that they are not a number or something.

Worker participation in decision making should be an integral part of the process of an organization for it to be really effective

Being able to speak up and raise your concerns — for some people that can be liberating … I’ve grown as an individual, as a dad, as a husband, because of [my experience with Sociocracy in my workplace].

The care industry has a very high turnover. Ours is pretty much non-existent.

Where as in games simple rules make for a complex and innovative play, the sociocratic construction rules produce an innovative and dynamic organization.
