After many months of tinkering and tweaking, our team is proud to announce that Kintopia is officially up and running!
Kintopia is the global company blog of Japanese groupware developer Cybozu and its U.S. affiliate Kintone. Every Tuesday evening (U.S.)/Wednesday morning (Japan), we'll be posting new content that explores the frontiers of the future of work, shines a spotlight on recent trends in company culture, and discusses the relationship between corporations and society.
It's undeniable that the business world is changing all around us. More and more companies are providing their employees with enticing amenities, from more relaxed business attire and fancy lunch bars to flexible hours and remote work. Executives are increasingly engaging in philanthropy, dedicating significant resources to social and environmental projects. At the same time, we are also in the age of the megacorporation, where profits and market share reign supreme. Workers are left feeling like just another number, fearing that as we enter the era of automation and artificial intelligence, their jobs will disappear entirely.
Here on Kintopia, we set out to further understand the evolving relationship between people, companies, and communities. We deliver the latest insights from experts, industry leaders, and academics, ultimately leaving the interpretation up to you. Are we in the midst of the greatest workstyle revolution since the industrial era? Or are we stagnating in a second Gilded Age? Will Millennials and Gen Z push the boundaries of tech integration and innovation? Or will their privilege and lack of experience destroy the work ethic of their forebearers?
Don't hesitate to let us know what you think on our Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn. We look forward to embarking with you upon this journey into the future of work!
