Just as we underestimate how much these sources of fuel influence our performance, so do the organizations for which we work. Few companies or leaders I’ve encountered systematically focus on, and invest in, how their employees feel, even though doing so would serve their bottom line.
The way we’re working isn’t working.
In a world of increasing demand and diminishing resources, people are working more hours, spending more time outside work tethered to digital devices, and taking less time to reflect, renew and prioritize. As a result, they’re increasingly exhausted, overwhelmed, and disengaged. It’s not a sustainable way of working for individuals or for organizations.

We help people and companies design a better way of working.
Science tells us that we perform at our best when we move regularly between expending and renewing energy. Rather than trying to get more out of people, the most sustainable companies invest in meeting their employees’ core needs so they’re freed, fueled and inspired to bring more of themselves to work every day.
