Law, Economics and mondora

The interest for B Corps and legal Benefit Corporations has seen a substantial growth recently. In Italy, especially after the law on Società Benefit that was passed in early 2016, many university students are taking an interest in the subject and writing their master’s thesis on this. In mondora we often receive request from students…

A New Level of Interdependence

 A few hours on a plane sipping my English Breakfast tea and eating caramel popcorn, a moment of confusion when looking for the Uber taxi I just booked and a sigh of relief when I finally reach the lovely Airbnb in which I’m staying. A deep breath and…action! Cascais, Portugal. It’s Tuesday evening, it’s extremely…

Changemaker mode: ON

When B Corps Meet Forget formal traditional meetings, where CEOs and high standing managers get together for an expensive lunch and talk about how brilliant they all are. When two B Corps meet there is nothing formal, nothing traditional… it’s explosive. Last Friday we received a visit from Davines, an Italian B Corp that makes…

Cycle2Work – Creating Benefit for the Community

For most people commuting to and from work is an unavoidable part of everyday life. In Valtellina for example, where mondora’s office is, many people commute by car because travelling by public transport is not always possible. This results in a large amount of CO2 production, just for getting to work! If every colleague in…

Self Organisation

Part 2 – The Evolution Process In Part 1 of this article I discussed the various challenges that mondora faces as a self organised company. Here I would like to review the solutions we have found and that we are trying to practice in order for the company to run smoothly whilst being self organised….

Self Organisation

Part 1 – The Challenges Working in a self organised company is like a dream come true for some people. You can spend your days working on what you are passionate about, with a great team of colleagues there to help you along the way and without ever feeling oppressed by a rigid hierarchical system….

Share our Break – a Benefit Project

One of the things we like to do in mondora is spend valuable time with our colleagues, not only whilst we are working on a project, but also when we are taking a break. One of the benefits we get from the company is that we always have delicious organic snacks available, and one of…

PeerPraise: Performance Review in a Teal Company

A while ago I wrote a post called The Importance of Listening, in which I talked about how we use the tool Officevibe to share feedback and monitor people’s happiness at work. The tool has been in use for a year now and has proved very useful to us. However, as always, growth and evolution…

Work exchanges – part 2: meeting teams

A team of people from mondora recently tried out a work exchange with a TeamSystem partner company in Copenhagen. The exchange proved to be really interesting and useful to all, so we soon decided this should not be a one shot event, but something that could grow into an ecosystem of open and modern solution…

A new experiment: work exchanges

Since joining TeamSystem mondora has become part of a very large group of software companies and we thought it would be nice if we could find some way of interacting with these new partners and share knowledge and ideas. The thought evolved into an experiment: a work trip in which a small group of people…

Behind the scenes at our company meeting

A few weeks ago we had a company meeting, where the whole :m team got together to discuss various issues and share ideas. There are 36 of us now, so there was no way we could spend the whole day squashed in our little office. We didn’t want to hire a conference hall either…far too formal…

The Importance of Listening

mondora is a very open company, and for us it is important to listen to everyone and give feedback to each other. We don’t have any yearly performance reviews and we believe everyone should contribute in sharing their views and feedback. Our flat structure means that any team player can give feedback to the CEO,…
