At the beginning of this year, we embraced a cultural transformation with a simple goal of keeping the unique Blinkist traits while letting go of what is holding us back. This transformation would allow us to create a more agile, impactful, and innovative organization while decreasing negative stress for everyone.

2021 started fast! Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is still very strong. We know that to make Blinkist inclusive, we need to do the work.

In 2017, we published this article about Blinkist’s way of work and organizational structure, including our adaptations of holacracy. Since then, the world has experienced a solar eclipse, Brexit, a global pandemic and so many other events. One thing is certain: things have changed, non-stop.
Internal successes should be celebrated by the whole organization. Today, we have compiled five amazing stories not only to shine light on these empowering victories but also to underline how one can achieve great outcomes even when there’s a challenge ahead.
