About charter, background Unsplash graphic

Our mission is to transform every workplace and catalyze a new era of dynamic organizations where all workers thrive. Charter does this by bridging research to practice – giving people the tactical playbook for what work can and should be.

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. We also host events for workplace decision-makers and work with organizations directly.

"It's essential knowledge and has quickly become my weekly must-read. [Charter] tells me how to make sense of it all, and how to succeed."

Charles Duhigg

Author of 'The Power of Habit'
"This newsletter has insight every single time. I've been happy to recommend it to others."

Maia Ervin

Chief People Officer at JUV Consulting
"Many publications trying to own the future of work recycle the same burnout stories. There are far larger stories to be told beneath the surface that are about organizational design, business models, tech and more. I like the approach Charter is taking."

Brian Morrissey

Founder of The Rebooting

Who we are

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.

Our exceptional, experienced team includes leaders from the technology and media industries, with both consumer and business-to-business expertise. Get to know us below.
