Core values

 We believe in the power of business to have a positive impact on people and the planet.

Our work breathes passion for the people and our core values guide everything we do, from how we structure ourselves to how we work with our customers.

We are a Teal organization, which is the color used by Frederic Laloux, to identify a type of organization that eschews hierarchical and organizational structures and embraces current social and employment trends. The concept based on three key ideas: self-management, wholeness and evolutionary purpose leading the convergence point between maximum operational efficiency and employee satisfaction.
