“A bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work.” 


Why I Started HumaNext    


By Francois Basili, Founder and President, HumaNext


Driving to work one morning, I saw a bumper sticker that said: “A bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work.” I was deeply saddened. We spend most of our waking hours at work. Isn’t it sad to go through life feeling this way? What a waste! I remembered how miserable I was in my first job as an engineer. I didn’t have passion for what I was doing, and my boss denigrated people and made them feel bad. Going to work every morning I felt like a ‘Dead Man Walking.’

After changing my career, I found myself coming alive again. I learned the importance of having a job you love, in a work culture that uplifts the spirit and ignites the passion to achieve great things. In early 2002, during the difficult few months after the terrorist attack of Nine Eleven and in the midst of difficult economic times particularly for New York area where I lived, I started a company to help people change the culture of work and build a more creative, inclusive, and productive workplace.

People thought I was crazy to start a business at such time. But I persisted and saw our business turned in a few years into a movement with enthusiastic supporters in thousands of workplaces around the world.
