#3 – REPLACE FROM HERE

Passengers at the Vystavochnaya station west of Moscow can do 30 physical squats in order to earn free travel. Under the guise of a Winter Olympic build up, the program is an unorthodox cultural program to deliver a happier community, and to get people moving. The foundation belief behind this is that our physiology creates our psychology. This is a fun way to please all stakeholders.

#4 – FUNGUS IS THE NEW PLASTIC

Fungi is being grown to decompose landfill waste plastic and to create a composite product. At a certain point the fungus is cooked in order to stop the growth and to harden in a desired shape. This technology may be a replacement for other materials such as leather in the future too. This is ground breaking technology that began with the design of an organic 3D printed chair.

#5 – 4 DAY WORK WEEK IS JUST AS PRODUCTIVE

With research indicating that workers are only productive for under 3 hours a day, Perpetual Guardian in New Zealand trialed a 5 day week achieved in 4 working days. The day off was offered as staggered days throughout the month across the business. Results indicate reduced stress levels, improved work/life balance, and approximately 20% increase in engagement in each of multiple factors including leadership, commitment, stimulation, and empowerment. Most importantly the job performance was maintained. The intention of this change is to keep workers for longer, improve culture,  and to have happy, healthy and engaged employees.
