Youth in Wikimploi

Wikimploi model combines available workforce, empty workspaces, work and the abstraction shift of work (more economical, ecological and ethical work).

In addition, each Wikimployee has a new, enthusiastic attitude towards work, which is being done together with various partners, mentors and stakeholders. Each Wikimployee meets and gets support and mentoring from hundreds of professionals, young and senior people as projects are conducted in a global Wikimploi community.

In Wikimploi, entrepreneurship and work are radically different from the old way of working – as innovative development of work and its output towards the next abstraction shift of work create competitiveness and success.

Wikimploi offers for young people:

  • free office space, workshops, ateliers, equipment, guidance and mentoring
  • conversational, multi-cultural and international working environment
  • preparatory course leading to the understanding of the idea and ecosystem of work, division of labour, entrepreneurship vs. the status of an employee, formation of salary as regards to productivity, balance of work, ecology, competitiveness and the relationship between brainstorming, planning, production, maintenance and service work
  • excellence in innovation (the process of conception, production, marketing, internationalisation, export)
  • encouragement to diversity and preparedness for quality
  • educational opportunities in local and international educational institutions
  • lectures and visits by the best national and foreign professionals
  • stability – a stable, globally dynamic, local community
  • chance to participate in revolutionising the idea and meaning of work
  • chance to travel abroad to set up new Wikimplaces, as Wikimploi expands
  • responsibility, accountability.

Wikimploi expects from young people:

  • responsibility for their own work and for work community’s commonly agreed goals
  • liability for contracts and keeping shared company secrets
  • contracts and agreements with senior colleagues (cf. atelier apprentice, traineeship)
  • examining and understanding one’s own role in and contribution to the overall work chain
  • calculation of how one’s own work input and its output becomes a salary when someone buys labour
  • visualising one’s own targets and preparing a development plan (vision, design, implementation)
  • conducting professional analysis and peer reviews (what others have already done and are currently doing on the same field, what are the future prospects for that specific field, what skills and knowledge are required from oneself, how to be competitive)
  • their own unique contribution to the work community.

In short, young people join Wikimploi through the WikimploiBauhaus -theme, in which the young work in multifaceted projects with senior professionals. (The Bauhaus School of Design developed, in the 1920s, the craft- and artisan-oriented thinking into more modern, high-quality and industrial, so that all people could be offered better items, clothing, furniture, interiors, houses and cities. All the world’s best art, design and architecture schools have been founded based on the doctrines of Bauhaus. The Bauhaus school existed in Berlin from 1932 to 1933).
