OUR ETHOS

We believe that…

  • Work should nourish life; and vice versa
  • Technology will render the traditional 9-5 work pattern obsolete
  • Flexible working for all is the future of work
  • The days of the ‘owner-dog’ style employer-employee relationship are gone!
  • The happier your employees are, the brighter they will shine
  • Honesty and pragmatism reign (we struggle with stuffy or corporate)
  • Employee engagement is not a ‘one size fits all’ concept
  • Extraordinary company cultures are cultivated carefully, over time
  • Collaboration is king
  • Truly engaged employees are emotionally bought-in (they ‘feel it’)
  • It takes more than free jelly beans and ping pong to build a great culture
  • Giving people as much autonomy as you dare pays dividends
  • Ownership and empowerment are the biggest drivers of engagement
  • People should be measured on output, not presentee-ism
  • People will amaze you if you give them enough freedom and flexibility
  • Everyone has potential if they play to their strengths
  • Positive Psychology drives job satisfaction and high performance
  • Employee engagement strategies should be experimental and iterative
  • Company cultures will (and should) change over time
  • High performance comes from strengths-building (vs weakness-fixing)
