Be Human

Our dream is for all organisations to be more human

We believe that how people feel is important. If people feel that they know what is going on and how things work they have more confidence and value and appreciate the experience.

This might seem to be a simple concept but it is actually very powerful for all organisations to understand. Whether you are in a commercial or public organisation there are strong benefits to creating a “Be Human” environment.

What is the Be Human Movement

The Be Human Initiative consists of a charter type set of principles of what we would like to expect from good public services and organisations. Organisations then test these principles in various ways with their employees and/or customers/recipients of support.
