INSPIRATION TO MAKE YOUR COMPANY MORE RELEVANT FOR SOCIETY
PurposePlanet is a not-for-profit initiative of ImpactBuilders, a European business services group who believes businesses càn be relevant for society. PurposePlanet offers free inspiration for all staff members and leaders who want to make many small improvements to make their company more relevant for society. All the inspiration is free, as are the events PurposePlanet initiate every other month. Companies who need help to introduce society-relevance into their organisation, can call upon the ImpactBuilders coaches for a very low price. The costs of this initiative are covered by donations and sponsorships.
PurposePlanet is creating and sharing a lot of free content that could inspire people to increase the society-relevance of their company. Our inspirers create blogposts that bring new and old ideas for six main themes. They also suggest books, and collect tools and working material for individuals and teams who want to co-create their own events. Companies and teams who need assistance to start off right, can appeal on the growing network of PurposePlanet coaches all over Europe.
Events to include the team
Every other month PurposePlanet organises an event in one of the six themes. These suggestions are open and free for every individual to act upon them, and for every team to participate or to organise their own event that connects with the world-wide PurposePlanet event. In a growing number of European cities a local PurposePlanet chapter ensures that more and more individuals and team leads are joining our journey, and getting inspired citizens of our (Purpose)Planet.
AN INITIATIVE OF IMPACTBUILDERS
Former HR global manager and leadership coach, Remko Westerbeek, believes people make the difference. And people can take the lead to impact the company – and make it more relevant for society.
Strategy Advisor and Product Inventor, Jan Lagast, believes every company can become more relevant for society. It ‘only’ requires the collaborators and the leaders to take some small initiatives, to change from the inside.

It's wonderful to see people becoming passionate about their work again, when you engage them in organising their own tasks in the projects they are working on.
Watch your story! Your internal dialogue may either help you realising your full potential or prevent you from even trying. What’s your story?”
We believe that small acts,
multiplied by millions of people,
can transform the world
Most people know very well what needs to be done to make their organization a better place, however they often struggle to take action. Let’s close this gap between common sense and common practice.
I hope the inspiration on this website make people think ... so they understand they can make a difference and impact the culture of their working environment.
Over the years, I have seen a lot of good intentions in the Estonian HR community. PurposePlanet helps get these good intentions become the daily reality in many companies now.
If you have a strong purpose in life, your passion will drive you along your path
Young people will soon be leading our organisations into the future. I hope PurposePlanet can be a bridge towards them, as well as a source of mutual inspiration. We can learn from them. They can learn from us.
Every business can become more society-relevant, as long as their leaders and their staff frequently make small improvements. You'd be surprised how big an impact all these small pieces can make.
Curiosity is key. Seek to understand the world around you and the world will be revealed to you. Sincere interest for your work will bring an abundance of insights, ideas and creativity. Experience the difference!
People are the most valuable asset of every company. If people are not respected, they will become the biggest cost factor. Do companies really need more reason, to engage their people?
