Our mission is to tackle toxic workplace culture head-on, by promoting positive action.
We’re a small group of former BrewDog employees, who are turning our first-hand experience of toxic workplaces into constructive change. By promoting positive action when we see genuine desire to be better, yet acting quickly to expose lies and hypocrisy when they arise, we aim to stamp out the attitudes and behaviours we suffered under. When normal channels of communication are failing to deliver meaningful support for employees, we believe it is time to step in.
We hope to support not only BrewDog employees past and present, but identify and help tackle other organisations with aggressive, toxic or fearful cultures. We’re only a small group, but we do what we can, as part of a healthy work / life balance.
