Welcome to the Be Human Project!

Welcome to the Be Human Project! We’re pleased you’ve stopped by!

The Be Human Project is thrilled to be here – it’s been a long time in the making. Before the Project was conceived of, the desire for a more human business environment was a principle that guided us. In fact, many of us were saying “be human” long before it became a buzz phrase that was dropped all over social media like so many colorful candy wrappers. Not that we’re complaining; we’re actually quite excited that just as our Project is taking off, the concept of being human has become so widely accepted as something to aspire to and brag about.  We can remember a time when no one would listen.

But all the hype around “being human” has made us concerned though with what it actually means when a company talks about ways to ‘be human.’ It seems to us that there is a whole lot of talk, but little consistency in definition and even less relevant and practical information on how to go about the process of becoming more human.

It’s our hope that the Project can help the human movement along in its own small way by sharing with you all the research, ideas, stories, and examples that we can find.

It’s our hope to speak directly to leaders who can inspire, create, and demand change in making business more human. We want to be a resource for you and a place where you can share your own successes and find support.

Please take time to explore the site, and don’t forget to like our Facebook page and show your support for the Project!
