- Inclusion and respect. We understand that diversity and inclusion not only make us a better company, but a better community. We aim to create a space where everyone feels welcome no matter who they are, where they come from, how they worship, or whom they love. To foster a space where people from every background feel welcome and respected; we work to educate each other with empathy and compassion.
- We revel in the fact that we have a job that doesn't feel like a job. We want to work in a place where people are passionate about what they do and their respective contributions are understood and appreciated. We give our team the freedom and autonomy to work when and how they please. We hire sharp people, give them meaningful work, and treat them with respect. We strive to create coworking environments that foster collaboration and are enjoyable, productive, and inclusive.
- We focus on craftsmanship. We take a moment before interacting with clients and ask, “Is this the best we can do? Are we proud of this?” If the answer is no, we go back to the drawing board. We perform our work with integrity and accountability, even if it means having an uncomfortable conversation.
- We do not allow jerks. No political climbers, bullies, or yellers; we operate in a climate of mutual respect. When somebody--no matter how talented they are--breaches the line of mutual respect, they need to go. This goes not only for our team but for our clients too.
- We have been programmed by nature to listen. Every aspect of our business requires active listening. We have two ears and one mouth for a reason - we strive to use them accordingly.
- We value people over profits. We’d rather break even than run a company that isn’t enjoyable to work at. Profits are important — they keep the lights on and give us long term security — but we will not compromise the quality of our work or make ourselves miserable in pursuit of financial gain.
- We are honest, not perfect. We all make mistakes, have flaws and should be comfortable owning our failures. It’s okay to mess up once in awhile. It’s how we own our mistakes that matters. We accept that there will always be a gap between where we are and where we want to be. We think the gap makes us do better work, especially when we’re honest about it.
