Right now, the world is moving toward the reality and vision we discovered years ago: humanity in the workplace matters. Today’s employees expect safety, equity, privacy, and belonging – and the need to find a better way has never been more urgent. For 21 years, Workhuman® has helped leading global brands ignite their work cultures through human connection. Because of this, many have looked to us for what’s next.
And six years ago, we started Workhuman® Live – and the movement that followed – to bring more humanity to workplaces around the world. The question that arose was, how? How can individual companies and leaders contribute to shaping the global future of work? And how can they share their commitment and their efforts with the community?
Now, we’re casting a bold vision for the future of work with the Workhuman® Charter of Workplace Rights, and we’re encouraging organizations and individuals to realize that vision with Workhuman® Certified as their road map to achieve this vision and our goals of better work communities and a better society.
The Workhuman Charter of Workplace Rights is more than a set of standards. It’s a rallying cry for all of us to create a more human workplace that springs from a global vision of equity, connectedness, and gratitude.
