Holacracy at Eco-Counter, 1 – The Context

I begin this article series to share with you a new adventure that we are living here at Eco-Counter, the implementation of Holacracy!

A little more than one year ago, we decided to make the company  grow with an important first acquisition – Quantaflow, the premier French specialist in shopping center indoor counting.

This acquisition had two immediate consequences. First, the number of employees increased from 80 to 100 people. Second, the acquisition created a new role for me as I devote myself to this exciting new challenge.

I decided to entrust Enrico Durbano – previously Sales Manager – as the General Manager of Eco-Counter. Following this change, Enrico left for a few weeks to #INSEAD for the “Transition to General Management” training program.

With this new position, Enrico faced an important question: how should we manage the business to ensure the core values of kindness, autonomy, transparency and workplace happiness remain central, while continuing to make the business grow?

The answer is the implementation of Holacracy, a cultural movement towards structured, sustainable, ‘liberated’ companies. We are proud to participate in Holacracy and are excited to share with you in this article series where the movement has taken us!

9 UNESCO designated sites that measure their visitor numbers with Eco-Counter

Updated every year since 1978 by a dedicated UNESCO committee, the World Heritage List designates a set of natural and cultural sites of exceptional interest to humanity.

The UNESCO committee designates monuments for extraordinary historical and heritage richness, while the natural parks are often classified based on their landscapes and exceptional fauna and flora.

In this context, the objectives for collecting, monitoring and analysing visitor numbers may vary. Counting visitors can track traffic trends and analyse the before and after impact of UNESCO classification, but also anticipate peak visitation and better preserve the site by limiting human impacts.

Here are 9 examples of World Heritage sites that count visitors.
