We are what we read


I’ve always loved books, they give me inspiration, energy and stimulation and I’m not the only one who thinks so at SYMBIO. That’s why we – following Zappos example – decided a few years ago to set up a library. Today, our two libraries (in Prague and Pardubice) features almost three-hundred books ranging from digital marketing, creative thinking to business, happiness, psychology and personal development from favourite publishers, book blogs or recommended by colleagues.

Similarly to Zappos, some books come in several copies so that anyone can grab a book off the shelf without having to worry about returning it, which allows for ideas to spread more rapidly and be directly accessible to more people.

Our library is open for anyone walking into our office – colleagues, clients, partners, friends. We don’t have any formal check-out process as we trust that books return. If not, that means it’s really good and that we need to order another copy. 🙂

I’d like to think that our library says something about us at SYMBIO and our values of being inquisitive and lifelong learning. To facilitate this, we’ve put together a list of our books on our Website, if you find one of the books interesting, don’t hesitate to come by for a cup of coffee and “check it out” 🙂

Libor je spoluzakladatelem SYMBIA. Fascinuje ho dětská přirozenost, absence strachu z neúspěchu a potřeby porovnávat se s ostatními. Světem dětí se inspiruje i při vedení SYMBIA. Jeho ideálem je firma, kde pravidla příliš nepřekážejí tvůrčí práci a kde každý dostává pro využití svého talentu tolik prostoru, kolik chce. V takové firmě má každý zodpovědnost za svoje jednání i výsledky práce a zapojuje se do rozhodování.
