Glassdoor.com: Winner of WorldBlu Most Democratic Workplace

2009-04-14 12:07:21

The WorldBlu organization announced today the 40 most democratic workplaces, a list of organizations whose workplaces best exemplify the practice of ten democratic principles, such as transparency, dialogue and listening, integrity, accountability and choice on a leadership, individual, and systems and processes level. Glassdoor.com is honored to be among the list of winners.

“Nothing has proven the need for a new model of business as definitively as the current economic crisis,” says WorldBlu Founder and President, Traci Fenton. “The call for transparent, accountable, and decentralized companies is greater than ever, and in the midst of all the economic turmoil these organizations are a bright spot and a reason for hope.”

The WorldBlu Search for the Most Democratic WorkplacesTM is a global search that seeks to identify organizations in the for-profit, non-profit or government sectors practicing organizational democracy.

“Democratic organizations operate on the principles of freedom rather than fear and control,” explains Fenton. “Democratic companies understand that the future of business is less about pomp and more about participation, less about titles and more about meaning, and less about fiefdoms and more about being flat in order to be competitive in this new, democratic age.”

On behalf of the Glassdoor team, we would also like to congratulate the other 39 winners of the World Blu award. A complete listing of WorldBlu award winners is below:
