Michael, definitely a fair question.

The feedback we have received so far has been absolutely great. Although the same size is very small, we are a very early stage startup, we are seeing incredible engagement from our partners and they are utilising their newly learned skills to help grow the business in surprising ways, which has ultimately a huge boon for the business. Our aim is to educate and enable progression for each individual and we believe we are achieving that.

You are of course spot on that it could be abused, we haven’t really legislated for that on purpose. We believe the staff will educate themselves accordingly and that ultimately they are defeating themselves if they don’t exploit the opportunity. Technology has proliferated the workplace to such an extent that you can’t track your workers attention so we don't try. We believe what we are doing is special and have only seen the staff appreciating this, but as we scale who knows it could definitely become an issue.
