About the Author

He travels the world researching progressive organisations, blogs about the discoveries he makes and advises on workplace issues. Joost is a Doctoral Candidate at the Amsterdam Business Research Institute (VU University, Amsterdam).
Co-founder Pim de Morree started Corporate Rebels after saying goodbye to a corporate job. That was three years after finishing his studies in Industrial Engineering and Management Science and Innovation Management at the Eindhoven University of Technology. Besides travelling the world and researching, he writes for the Corporate Rebels blog, advises companies, and gives keynote presentations to inspire organisations to radically change the way they work. Together with the rest of the Corporate Rebels team, he supports the growth of a global movement to make work more fun.


"I have long been a fan of the Corporate Rebels and this book captures the essence of their wisdom. The authors provide a no-nonsense, practical, and thought-provoking perspective on the world of work."
Daniel Pink, author of When, Drive, and A Whole New Mind

"Challenge chosen truth is one of my recurring mottos and that is exactly what Corporate Rebels are doing! A clever read for all employees, HR professionals and business leaders that want to create radically inspiring workplaces."
Katarina Berg, Chief HR Officer of Spotify

"Corporations need disrupting, and the business world needs the Corporate Rebels. They are a timely and very welcome wake up call for capitalism. A breath of fresh air in management thinking, the Rebels are on the Thinkers50 Radar for a very good reason. Their voices resonate for a new generation who are demanding a radically different approach to work and life."
Des Dearlove, co-founder of Thinkers50

"Businesses, or rather their customers and employees, are asking for more sustainable and better ways of organising work. The Corporate Rebels have been able to hit the nail on the head; they share alternatives in an inspiring way. Beautiful!"
Jos de Blok, founder and CEO of Buurtzorg

"A silent revolution in management is under way. For people to notice, and join the revolution, we need to give it a voice, or rather many, many voices. The Corporate Rebels have made it their job to bring us such voices and their stories."
Frederic Laloux, author of Reinventing Organisations

"The Corporate Rebels give a valuable, refreshing, and unique contribution to thinking and doing on new organisational models. With solid choices and research, with a transparent approach, with practical insights, with nuance and with a lot of courage. Bravo!"
Yuri van Geest, co-author of Exponential Organisations

"Joost Minnaar and Pim de Morree have covered the planet to meet all the organisations, leaders, and thinkers who aim to transform the command-and-control workplace into a place where work is fun. The authors found over one hundred of them and through their no-nonsense stories provide hope and vision to any student of organisation. A most interesting and original book."
Isaac Getz, co-author of Freedom, Inc. and Leadership Without Ego

"The Corporate Rebels are the place to go for the most exciting and innovative developments in management across the planet. They stimulate, they challenge, they find the cutting-edge companies and paint a picture of how organisations could be different, and much more fun to work for. Whether you are a business leader or an employee, they will change the way you think about work."
Henry Stewart, Chief Happiness Officer, Happy Ltd

"Don't fail to check out The Corporate Rebels, a prime resource on the future of work. Too little focus has been spent on a key lever of corporate performance: the workplace and workplace culture. The Corporate Rebels change that and highlight how the right techniques help companies improve the bottom line, boost growth, and feature as an undeniable force for good."
Alexander Osterwalder, author of Business Model Generation and creator of the Business Model Canvas

"They call themselves Corporate Rebels, but you could also call them explorers: in search for the ultimate employee happiness."
Het Financieele Dagblad (Dutch Financial Newspaper)
