Human:Organization Ratio

The Human:Organization Ratio lab designs organizational structures, practices, and experiences that enhance the quality of our work and the quality of our lives. 

With the growing ambiguities around AI, the gig economy, remote work, and evolving employee expectations, our generation is witnessing dramatic transitions in organizational technologies, methodologies, and ecosystems. As we continue to step into new labor roles, we’re actively redefining the possibilities of work.

At the Human:Organization lab, we believe that work is a commitment to mutual growth between employees and organizations. We aim to bring together employees and organizations to codesign workplace experiences.
