The Semco Style Institute UK (SSI UK), is on a mission to shape the future of work.
Every leader wants an organisation full of highly engaged, productive and creative teams. Yet engagement, productivity and innovation are at rock bottom.
We believe the system is broken and needs to be transformed.
In the 1980s, Ricardo Semler transformed his company Semco into a self-managed organisation and gained international recognition for his ground-breaking approach to management.
By democratising his company and flipping the traditional corporate hierarchy on its head, he achieved outstanding business growth with extremely low employee turnover.
He demonstrated that autonomous, self-managed teams succeed because they have a greater sense of responsibility.
Now SSI UK brings a proven method to guide people on their own path to self-management. It is a method that makes an impact on business results, improves overall performance and delivers happier, more engaged employees.

Our approach is all about adding your own recipe to the world’s best management cookbook. Our three favourite ingredients are:
We believe that many organisations today are failing to realise their potential. They are still operating with outdated systems and processes and are no longer fit for the new world of work. The future of work is a more human-centred, self-managed and agile workplace. We are spearheading this transformation.
We use the Semco Style Roadmap to help leaders and teams navigate the change process and provide an overview of the journey. The Semco Style Framework offers tested tools and practices that clients can make their own and implement immediately to get better results fast.
We provide consultation and inspirational coaching to owners, leaders, internal change agents and team members. Our high-impact, blended learning experiences mix virtual collaboration tools with immersive in-person experiences and events. Our online diagnostics will deliver powerful insights into your own style as well as the needs of your organisation.
We aim to change how businesses work through one high-impact intervention at a time. Our accessible and creative learning programmes deliver innovative, blended learning solutions that combine the best of immersive, in-person experiences with a dynamic virtual learning journey.
Whether it’s through consulting, coaching or training, we help our clients create the future of work.
Since 2020, the world has needed to migrate into the virtual, digital space. Meetings, conferences and events have all embraced the value of digital technology to connect people and create opportunities to communicate in a virtual way.
While the technology serves us well, we also recognise the importance of stepping away from our usual work or home environment and immersing ourselves in dedicated learning time in a new space.
As such, part of our programmes will be spent with like-minded individuals in some of the UK’s most impressive spaces that provide the best settings for learning.
The Semco Style Institute UK (SSI UK) is part of a global movement that began over 40 years ago with the pioneering work of Ricardo Semler in Brazil. Building on this strong foundation, the Semco Style Institute (SSI) was founded in the Netherlands in 2016 and has developed significantly in recent years - SSI is now active in 15 countries, with over 700 consultants and more than 500 clients experiencing new ways of working.
The time is right to expand the Semco Style thinking to the UK. For centuries, Great Britain has been a powerhouse of industry, leading the way with scientific discovery, innovative methods of production and successful new markets. We have a proud heritage of sector-leading businesses that we have shared with the world.
Yet, in terms of how we work, we have rested on our heritage for too long, favouring traditional thinking around organisational structure and development. With the huge changes the business world has seen over recent years, now is the time for UK organisations to adapt alongside other progressive pioneers to create working environments where employees are able to thrive and do their best work.
Shaping the future of work is what we aim for. One of the ways we do this is by offering free content in the form of e-books and blog articles. A selection of our free content that will get you started:
Humanising Business: The Future Of Work Started 40 Years Ago 1980: that’s when the foundation was laid for Semco Style Institute and for the passion we put into creating people-centric businesses today. When Ricardo Semler took over Semco, a Brazilian Manufacturer company, he literally redefined the concept of employee empowerment. The management style that Ricardo evolved through years of experimentation proved to be massively successful. The company defied gravity with the rate of its growth, even when the rest of the country was suffering a savage recession. Today, many Semco Style practices are being applied by organisations across the world. Do you really want to become Agile?
The management style that Ricardo Semler evolved through decades of experimentation at Brazilian firm Semco proved to be massively successful. The company defied gravity with the rate of its growth, even when the rest of the country was suffering savage recession. And yet, for all that, it is an example that few have attempted to follow. Why? Because it mostly revolves around management giving up control.
