The world around us has changed dramatically over the past 20 years. Technology has connected humans to each other, brought new levels of convenience into our lives and empowered us with information at our fingertips. Yet far too many South African employers continue to operate in much the same ways as they did 50 years ago.
People are stifled with rigid processes, put in boxes and silos. They are expected to switch off the playfulness and creativity for eight hours a day, five days a week when at work. This is an approach to workplace culture and organisational structure that we believe to be out of step with the needs of the 21st century worker and customer.
Companies like Google and The Unlimited, know that what connects humans to each other and their humanity is the ability to play.
The essence of our team at The Unlimited is creative grit. After numerous attempts to create a lightbulb, Thomas Edison said: “I have not failed, I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” This tenacity and creativity is what our clients love about us.
