Meeting your match

How do you break the stereotype of the younger generation that’s been labelled lazy, self-entitled and reckless with money (hello, $15 smashed avocado on toast) and help them do some social good? You create an app akin to the world’s most popular dating platform, Tinder, that connects volunteers with charities and social causes. Collaborate co-founder Holly Norton explains her app, how it’s smashing Millennial stereotypes and how people actually do want to do volunteer work, it’s just the process that’s hard.

The future of work

The future of performance reviews is here: an evidence-based digital badge system, which nurtures employee skills in a non-discriminatory and usable way. Auckland based software company Propellerhead seeks to challenge normative structures with innovative and alternative business models, notably its new digital badge system which will be introduced in early 2018 – a feature which aims to make traditional annual reviews irrelevant and remove workplace biases such as those towards gender, race, and religion.
