People and Culture

Culture is everything.
Period.


By keeping our team happy, their attention can be dedicated to keeping our clients satisfied. That’s why we’ve been consistently rated one of the best places to work in North America –  and are one of the fastest growing.

A Bold Attitude

Each of us has a Bold Attitude, but what exactly does that mean?

It means that we’re authentic. What you see is what you get. No preconceived notions. No consultant speak. No nonsense.

It means that we like to think of ourselves as the anti-consultants. We don’t assume to have prescribed answers. We make sure we’re asking the right questions, collaborate with our clients, and get results.

It means that we’re engaging. Our work may never be easy, but that doesn’t mean working with us needs to feel hard. Or onerous. Or boring. The issues we tackle may be challenging, but it’s in our DNA to make the answers inspiring.

It means we judge strategy by its execution. Ideas only make an impact if they inspire action.

It means that we embrace the fog. Our processes, our frameworks, and our trust in one another inspires a sense of confidence that no matter how complex the situation, we’ll find clarity.

It means that our ambition drives us to build the kind of company we’ve always wanted to work for, and the type of company our clients have always wanted to work with.
