Why Have an Organizational Constitution

Rodney North

Former Vice Chair, Equal Exchange

Ms. Fenton makes a powerful argument, backed by research and common sense, that the workplace status quo needs to change ̶ now. Bringing freedom and democracy into the workplace is both long-overdue and more practical than you think. Thankfully, Ms. Fenton also lays down a clear path – applicable in any workplace – of how to start the journey and stay the course.

In this powerful and engaging book, Traci Fenton lays out how we can actually bring the ideals of democracy to our workplaces—and why everyone from CEOs to workers to communities stand to benefit.

The brilliant Traci Fenton taps into a concept that is missing today—not only in workplaces, but often in our daily lives: freedom. Embracing freedom in the workplace won’t just benefit your organization at every level, it will promote an important precedent that lets all individuals shine.

Traci Fenton, a Thinkers50 Radar thinker, makes a compelling and practical case for a workplace revolution, one which puts people center stage and unleashes their potential, a revolution that sets them free and re-invents their organizations along the way.

Matt Perez

Freedom at Work proves that smart and soulful ways to run an enterprise are not competing demands, they are complementary energies towards sustainable success. Traci Fenton gracefully tells the stories, crafts the models, and shares the practices that matter. This IS the future of work.
Perry Timms

Founder & Chief Energy Officer | PTHR, Author of Transformational HR, HR Most Influential Thinkers List

Wellingborough, England
Democracy at work does not mean 'one person, one vote'. It means that those in an organization have a significant say in how and when they work and the conditions in which they work. This releases enormous energy, engagement, and productivity. Traci is a pioneer in this field and her book is full of examples for any company.

Freedom at Work took our spin-off from $0 to a $150 million sale in just two years.

Freedom at Work is the key to unlocking the power in an organization is the guidebook to success. We have implemented Freedom at Work when building our company, which has enabled us to attract brilliant people and grow our value. Traci's insight has been inspiring leaders for decades and this book will brighten the eyes of those around them.
