A San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange saw several of its employees taking the severance packages and leaving the company after Coinbase clamped down on talking politics and activism at work.
According to Coinbase, mission focus means being political about only the mission and putting aside those out of the project’s scope.
“Projects and organizations are full of diverse opinions, individuals, and areas of engagement. However, what brings everyone together is the pursuit of a goal that is bigger than any single individual. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”
Will be cool to see if more companies adopt a mission-focused approach https://t.co/DPQGAr7WGK
