Conference by L’Union des Savoirs: The freed company

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018 - 7:45pm

Have you heard of the “freed company”, where, it seems, humans would be placed in the center, where everyone almost would do what he/she wants, without control, and where holidays would be unlimited? This conference aims to distinguish myth from reality, and to present the advantages and disadvantages of such a company, as well as the ways to move towards this type of organization. Registration here.
