We are led by the following values...
Have respectful, direct communication, which leads to trust and strong relationships
We have many long-term, mutually-satisfying relationships with both our team and clients. This isn’t by accident. We honor these partnerships by maintaining an open and honest dialogue at all times, especially when we’re delivering bad news. We promise to always communicate every step of the way.
Be inspired by data
We’re a data-driven agency. A lot of other agencies say they are too. However, we’ve doubled down on that effort in three ways that we think are pretty special. We write about it on our blog, we have a team dedicated to helping us use data to make decisions, and we even put on a conference about it (with half-day workshops coming soon!). Next to our people, data is the thread that holds everything together in our agency.
Cherish the community
Our team is inspired by doing good in the community. We support local food pantries like Food Outreach, an organization that provides meals to low-income men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS or cancer. We also adopt families every year at Christmas and help out high schoolers with school supplies. Community is incredibly important and we cherish it as much as we can.
We believe a team can do its best work when given an opportunity to balance work with life. We close our office at 1 pm each Friday and give our team plenty of paid time off so that everyone is happy, well-rested, and ready to contribute their best to our clients’ projects. Plus, our team observes a “soft close” between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day, allowing you to spend the holiday season with your loved ones.
Focus on equity
Building an equitable culture ensures that we have diverse thought within our agency, which keeps us innovative and forward-thinking. We hire with diversity top of mind so that you can benefit from the best talent with a variety of interests, backgrounds, and experiences.
Provide the highest quality work
Last but certainly not least, we all commit to challenging each other to bring our best possible work to the table each day. This allows us to keep reaching and providing the best possible solutions to our clients.
