How to Use Your Platform to Advance Gender and Racial Justice


The modern world is fast, agile and flexible. Yet most workplaces demand people turn up to a fixed location nine-hours per day, five days a week. In a creative industry showing high levels of burnout, stress and depression, are these work methods really the best way forward? Martech consultancy Divide By Zero decided to find out for themselves. A year ago, they moved to a 30-hour work week, paying their people the same money, but giving them back over a day per week of their time. It was a risky move borne out of a desire to create a better workplace for employees and to produce better work for clients. In this warts-and-all lesson, Dana Teahan, Stuart Edwards and Georgie from Divide by Zero will explain how they implemented changes including transparent budgets and salary information, and outline the impact it has had on their business, as well as some of the very unexpected problems it has created.
