The Story

Unbox vision

The world of employment is changing rapidly. Technological and demographic shifts, globalisation and the pursuit of happiness and well-being influence the workforce & the labour market profoundly.

When organisations do not sufficiently heed these changes, they and their employees forego certain opportunities, such as autonomy, personal growth … leading to people not reaching their potential and talent going to waste. This is a problem to which existing structures and paradigms are unable to formulate an answer.

At Unbox, we want to revolutionise the way people are hired and allowed to develop and the way work is organised and rewarded. In doing so, we aim at having a real impact on the well-being of the people we come into contact with and eventually contributing to society as a whole.

Unbox mission

Unbox is dedicated to developing flexible new solutions to achieve a natural balance in the labour eco-system and to closing the gap between prosperity and well-being.

Unbox endeavours to transform the current structures of employment by giving autonomy, flexibility and choice to employers and employees, bringing them closer together. We want to give people perspective and a sense of belonging. And through all that, Unbox wants to create more overall wealth and well-being. Creating an eco-system where solutions for any group automatically further solutions for the rest.
