Our governance system

Inspired by holacracy and sociocracy, responsibility and decision-making power are shared by all members of the team

Essence

The essence of our governance system is to let everyone contribute where they feel they have something to bring to the group. The members of the team don’t have fixed positions but multiple roles within the organisation. They invest their energy at the service of Mereo’s raison d’être

“Build together innovative solutions that are recognized by our clients for their quality and the support provided, in a humane and gratifying environment that encourages personal and professional growth”

This organization system is dynamic in that it continually evolves and adapts to the needs of Mereo and its members. 

Mode de fonctionnement sous forme de cercles, Mereo governance system circles

How does it work?

Our governance system is structured in circles, with a Central Circle representing the entirety of Mereo’s members.

Each circle represents a team that serves a purpose (or raison d’être) with clear accountabilities. It is a decision-making entity whose members are ‘equivalent’ (there are no hierarchical positions) but not ‘equal’ as they each have their unicity in terms of experience, expertise, personality, etc.
Circles submit proposals that aim to improve the organization.

Each member can express the need for something to change and rely on the circle structure to address that need.

We empower people to progress towards their natural leadership through deep feedback and by recognizing every single effort. This special care we give to one another pushes us all to innovate and do better every day.
