About Kintopia

Kintopia is the global company blog of Japanese groupware developer Cybozu and its U.S. affiliate Kintone.

However, while Kintone sells software, Kintopia is in the marketplace of ideas. Specifically, ideas that challenge our outlook on the future of work, the place of corporations in society and what it means to have an outstanding company culture.

It’s no secret that attitudes toward work are changing. More and more companies are allowing employees flexible hours, remote work, infinite vacation, sometimes even unfettered access to a free all-you-can-eat pasta bar. At the societal level, enterprises are increasingly searching for purpose, rethinking their company culture and investing in philanthropic and environmental programs.

On Kintopia, our goal is to discuss these trends, as we explore the evolving relationship between people, companies and community. We deliver the latest insights from experts, industry leaders and academics, and let you make up your own mind.

So what do you think? Are we amid the greatest workstyle revolution since the industrial era? Or is it those pesky millennials trying to ruin our forebearers’ “hard day’s work” mentality with their persistent demands for locally sourced kombucha? Let us know your thoughts on how you imagine the future of work.
