Corporate Rebels Launch

Corporate Rebels Launch

Are you a Rebel? If so… we are delighted to let you know that the Corporate Rebels are partnering…

We are delighted to let you know that the Corporate Rebels are partnering with North West Employers and we are inviting you to join us on an exciting journey.

Back in January 2016, the Corporate Rebels (Joost & Pim) quit their corporate jobs because they felt frustrated by the fact that they worked in outdated workplaces characterized by inertia, bureaucracy and a lack of motivation. Wanting to examine and explore best practice, Joost and Pim started the Corporate Rebels blog and created a Bucket List of the world’s most inspiring workplaces that they then visited and gathered key learnings. The Corporate Rebels combine these practical insights with academic findings from their PhD research, sharing everything they learn, along the way.

Corporate Rebels have been featured in media outlets like The New York Times, Forbes, The Huffpost, BBC and The Guardian, have been nominated for several awards and are listed among the “Top 30 Emergent Management Thinkers” by the Thinkers50 Institute. Over the years, Corporate Rebels have grown into much more than just a blog. By expanding core activities they’ve been able to grow and have great worldwide impact.

This has been facilitated by the foundation of Corporate Rebels Academy which is an online hub featuring courses, tools and resources that support all aspects of the Corporate Rebels programme. Joost and Pim also run regular presentations and workshops across the world and have authored a successful book about their experiences, to date. As if that wasn’t enough, they have also established an organisational design consultancy.

Following Joost and Pim’s inspirational and universally well received session at our Reconnect, Reflect and Re-energise conference earlier in the year, North West Employers are investing in one license for each of our member organisations. This grants access to all aspects of this ground breaking and widely acclaimed programme, already adopted by many of the world’s most successful and innovative companies.

We want our members to get involved and to nominate a team member to take the lead in terms of participation in the programme and sharing of learnings across your wider organisation. Someone with real passion for professional development who is keen to learn and share new skills, practices, and insights would be perfect. The Corporate Rebels programme will also be supported by quarterly webinars and a dedicated Basecamp group providing updates and a space where Rebels can collaborate and share experiences and successes. Look out for an e-mail, over the coming weeks, asking for a nomination for your organisation’s Corporate Rebels champion and for further information please see the links below or contact Massimo directly.

or 07774 154318 for further information.

Hybrid Working

Hybrid Working

Hybrid working, new ways of working, agile working…

Whatever you choose to call it, one thing that’s certain, is that the way we now work has changed for the foreseeable.

We have pulled together some resources that may help to prompt your thinking as we transition back into a hybrid world.

World Menopause Day

World Menopause Day

World Menopause Day is held every year on the 18 October…

The purpose of the day is to raise awareness of the menopause and the support options available for improving health and wellbeing. The theme for this year is bone health.

At North West Employers we believe that further awareness around the menopause should be raised within all organisations and that managers should have a toolkit of ways to support their teams. Below are some resources that we have pulled together to support:

Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week aims to get people talking about their mental health and reduce the stigma that can stop people from asking for help; the theme for this year is nature. 

We have gathered some resources below, including articles, useful websites, and toolkits, and we will continue to add to them throughout the week.



The last few months have seen some significant changes to ways of working…

We’ve been able to capture some of what this has meant for our organisations through a series of leadership conversations with Professor Catherine Needham at the University of Birmingham. You can read the learning from the research in the following report and see the evolution of local authority strategies as Covid-19 moved from an acute crisis into business as usual for the foreseeable future.

The research also poses the question as to how we keep open the window of change for public servants and the citizens and communities that they work alongside.

In this report we reflect on the roles that councillors are playing, or recognise that they will need to be playing, within their organisations and localities. We then explain why these roles are emerging as the key contributions for councillors. The final two sections explore councillor careers and development, to consider how councillors can be supported to perform these roles effectively.
