What does freedom and trust mean?
In today’s companies, employees are often motivated with bonuses and top-down objectives and developed as a cohort for the benefit of the company and in centrally defined career paths. Work is measured in hours and performance is judged on compliance.
In New Work, companies act on the belief that all people think and act responsibly. Therefore, they are not driven by extrinsically oriented rewards, but by trust, autonomy and the opportunity to show their qualities and live in a meaningful way.
This trust is supported by a free choice of work location and working hours and the promotion of individual development. In New Work, each individual employee takes responsibility for himself, his life and his private and professional goals.
