About us

Corporate Rebels is a company, a movement, a blog, a book, an academy and much more. What’s more important than what we do is why we do it.

Corporate Rebels

Like most people, we worked in outdated workplaces characterized by inertia, bureaucracy and a lack of motivation. We simply couldn’t accept that the world of work – for far too many – is a place full of misery and despair.

In order to fight those dreadful workplaces, we started Corporate Rebels. By checking off our Bucket List, we visit the world’s most inspiring workplaces. We combine those practical insights with academic findings from our PhD research. Along the way, we share everything we learn.

Our mission? To make work more fun. Visit corporate-rebels.com to learn more.

Corporate Rebels Foundation

Fun at work, however, is a luxury many can't afford. Far too many people suffer the consequences of truly bad work. From child labor and slavery to unsafe and harmful working conditions.

That's why we set up the Corporate Rebels Foundation. Its mission? To end inhumane workplaces.

In pursuit of our vision, we're focusing on four themes:

  1. Raising awareness of the issue of harmful working conditions;
  2. Supporting projects in the developing world that will make working conditions safer;
  3. Supporting projects closer to home that will make working conditions safer;
  4. Raising awareness of positive alternatives and how our own buying habits and choices can help improve working conditions.

Corporate Rebels donates 10% of its profits to the Corporate Rebels Foundation. In addition, we collect donations from the community and beyond.

Corporate Rebels Shop

The shop aims to increase the impact of both Corporate Rebels and the Corporate Rebels Foundation. It's a way to spread the global movement to an ever wider audience while raising money to end inhumane workplaces.

It works like this:

  • You buy responsible merchandise to make a bold statement for better workplaces.
  • We donate 100% of the profits of the merchandise (books excluded) to the Corporate Rebels Foundation.
  • We make your purchase carbon negative as we compensate 10x the CO2 emissions of your product's lifecycle.

That's what we call a win-win.

Responsible merchandise

As you probably would have guessed, we care about working conditions. That's why all the merchandise we sell are sourced and manufactured responsibly. We only work with brands that run their business properly; taking care of people and the planet.
