  • Entrepreneurship for Good Program: Future of Work Challenge

    Berlin, Land Berlin, Germany The DO School gemeinnützige GmbH

    More and more people are looking for a meaningful job and a fulfilling career.

    They want to contribute to something greater than "just a job" – something that is bigger than them. But how will they ever feel that they're making a big difference? How could they measure their impact? What would that kind of job look like in a big company? How, as a part of a big system, would employees be able to tell that their work matters?

    That's what our next Entrepreneurship for Good Program: The Future of Work Challenge is all about. Posed by H&M Germany, the Challenge invites you and 19 other young entrepreneurs to spend 10 weeks on campus in Berlin. After that, you'll move on to implement your own venture over the course of the next 10 months.

    Even big change begins with small steps. So let's start by finding ways to empower employees across 400 different locations in Germany to make a positive impact on business and also on society at large – and to enable them to measure it, too. And that's where you come in. H&M Germany and the DO School challenge you to devise amazing new formats for employees in the fashion sector to set targets for themselves and their teams. In addition, you should find concrete, measurable ways for them to track their impact.

    In particular, you will be asked to:

    • Identify new areas in big companies that aren't already covered by employee satisfaction surveys
    • Create an amazing solution that is easily scalable and transferable, i.e. to other companies
    • Empower individual and structural change by making its effect measurable
