Global Impact Speaker: Ricardo Semler

Ricardo Semler

Best known for his radical form of industrial democracy and corporate re-engineering, former CEO of Semco, Ricardo Semler is internationally recognized as a catalyst of change for employee-empowered leadership.

As the best-selling author of the classic Maverick and The Seven-Day Weekend, Semler advocates for leadership to rewrite their corporate narratives to be driven by values of trust, self-management and creativity. For bold innovators, Semler proposes a way to run a workplace that leads to greater productivity and greater flexibility for managers and employees alike. And for business leaders everywhere, he offers fresh alternatives to business as usual that inspire creative solutions to modern management problems.

Why did we invite him to Happiness@Work?

Happiness@Work believes in work environments where employees are acknowledged, heard and loved. Only then, they can truly be happy — and show off their talents and skills. Ricardo Semler has been described as ​‘a champion of the employee-friendly radical corporate democracy’, which he implemented as CEO of Semco Partners.
Just like we do, he believes in the power of the employee. Therefore, he wants everybody to ask why we do certain things the way we do it — and devolve power to employees. Because only then we are able to create wise and wiser companies: organizations that are simultaneously more productive and have a happier workforce. In other words… creating Happiness@Work

About Ricardo Semler

In 1980, Ricardo Semler became head of his father’s company in Brazil. That was the moment he began his decades-long quest to create the perfect organization. He studied and then implemented ​‘corporate democracy’: a way of working that bans hierarchy, and allows employees to design their own jobs, select their supervisors and define pay levels. With success!
