He is a co-author of the award-winning and best-selling business book Freedom, Inc., translated to a dozen of languages.
Isaac Getz’s work and action have been instrumental in the rise of the corporate liberation movement in Europe. It includes Michelin, Airbus, Decathlon, several Belgian ministries, French Social Security, municipalities, and hundreds of other companies and institutions which have transformed their command-and-control organisations into freedom- and responsibility-based ones.
He is currently carrying the research on the companies which put the interests of their clients, suppliers and local society first; and believe that by doing that they will also be economically successful.
Isaac Getz has been shortlisted by Thinkers50 for the Breakthrough Idea Award 2019. He has conceptualised the notions of the freedom-based company, and of the liberating leader – one who believes that a workplace based on respect and freedom is a more natural environment for employees than one based on mistrust and control. His latest thinking champions what he describes as “the altruistic corporation”. His book with that title will be published in English in 2020.
Dr. Isaac Getz’s work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, Strategy+Business, Financial Times, Le Monde, Le Figaro, CNBC, Fox and other leading media on four continents. He is also a columnist in Le Monde and won the best Op-Ed 2017 award.
