Do you know about scientocracy?

In itself, scientocracy represents the unique corporate culture of LabNco, an innovation-oriented architecture firm. Going beyond traditional approaches, LabNco. offers its clients a human-centered approach and the scientific method to provide an emotional connection to space.

As a result, LabNco.'s culture stands out from other employers. Scientocracy is based on a people-oriented and respectful management approach. In addition, it offers incredible career opportunities for team members and motivates them to work. Are you wondering how a culture can, in itself, offer career opportunities? Here's how this ingenious: culture works.

A culture inspired by sport and science

Scientocracy is rooted in two concepts, science, and sport. You know what? These two concepts fit together perfectly! First, there is team spirit inspired by sports teams. If you have watched a sports competition, you will have noticed that a team achieves the best results by combining players' strengths. In other words, everyone works together, combining their respective talents to achieve the ultimate goal: winning the race.

The same is true of scientocracy. Work is based on making the most of each individual's strengths to achieve the best result collectively. This culture, inspired by the scientific approach: pose hypotheses, test reality, and base actions on proven facts and feedback. How does this translate into a working session? We propose ideas, debate, argue, and choose the optimal solution! At LabNco, you evolve, learn, and are constantly stimulated.

Human management behind scientocracy

Far from being a culture of competition, scientocracy is based, on the contrary, on valuing the strengths of each individual. It is based on openness values, cooperation, loyalty to the team and the organization, and rigor, to name a few. Team members are not only invited to propose their ideas, but they also have a duty to do so! Moreover, Scientocracy encourages them to do so, since it inspires all members to respect each other and to be committed to the team's success.

The main philosophy of Scientocracy? "Your expertise is valued at all costs. Your opinion is measured by your credibility and the weight of your ideas is modulated. In any case, even if your opinion is not retained, you are given an intrinsic human value. ". The idea is to get the team to ask not "am I right", but rather "how do I know I am right? The genius of this culture lies behind a value advocated by the founder of LabNco. authenticity. As Nicolas Labrie says: "By being transparent and authentic, we create a climate of trust." He actively seeks to develop his employees' self-awareness. This gives them the opportunity to understand their strengths and accept their weaknesses in a caring manner. This is what makes this unique culture possible.
