The iconic Four Seasons restaurant has served its final meal in its current guise, as it leaves the Seagram Building on Park Avenue in New York. As the contents of the restaurant come up for sale we take a look around to see what we might like to place our bids on.

The Entrepreneurs

How do you measure company culture? How seriously should a CEO consider it and how can it be improved? This week we meet Didier Elzinga from Australian start-up Culture Amp, a company revolutionising the ‘people-analytics’ industry. Meanwhile, with the news that advertising agency Wieden + Kennedy has created an emotionally needy robot that roams the company’s Portland office, we profile this experiment in how artificial intelligence affects the workplace. Plus: is the grass always greener for the sun-starved cubicle dweller? We send our sound engineer to a goat farm to find out.

The Foreign Desk

For a brief moment last Friday it seemed as if the attempted coup in Turkey would succeed. That it failed should be a cause for celebration, regardless of your views on the authoritarian nature of the Erdogan government. But the crackdown that has followed should worry those who believe in democracy. We ask where the coup attempt and the subsequent crackdown leaves the country.
