Charter is a next-generation media and insights company. We publish a free email newsletter, original research, and articles about work on TIME.com. Charter Pro is a premium membership that supports owners of the people agenda in executing their highest-value initiatives, quickly.

Charter offers in-depth coverage of the modern workplace, actionable research and journalism on best practices for leaders, a premium membership for owners of the talent agenda, and hands-on advisory services. We’re a trusted partner to individuals and organizations of all sizes for navigating their most urgent workplace challenges.
Our approach is to bridge research to practice – providing guidance rigorously grounded in findings by Charter’s researchers and others. Through our daily reporting, we uncover the most forward-thinking work in the field and through our original research, we continuously push the conversation forward. As a result, we bring answers to the biggest work-related questions and help our readers, members, and clients see around corners to what’s ahead.
We are proven leaders at the intersection of business, talent, research, and journalism—and we are obsessed with reimagining workplaces for the future.
Charter’s co-founders have led teams of hundreds of people in navigating periods of intense organizational and sectoral change. Charter is the resource that they wished they had along the way.
The company was started in 2020 as a newsletter by Kevin Delaney, a former Wall Street Journal managing editor and co-founder of Quartz, who was joined by co-founders Erin Grau, former head of people and culture at Away and head of transformation at The New York Times, and Jay Lauf, co-founder of Quartz and former publisher of The Atlantic and Wired. In 2022, a number of institutions and individuals invested in Charter with the goal of further expanding its impact.
