Our key differentiator is our people, and we focus on finding, recruiting, developing and retaining smart, curious, innovative and results-driven people who care deeply about the work we do, our colleagues and our communities. We come from diverse professional and personal backgrounds. But whether we’re in Shanghai or Santiago, Stockholm or Stamford, we’re united by our mission, purpose and commitment to one another and to our clients and candidates.
We are united by our shared purpose and values. We believe leadership can be a powerful force for good and are motivated and inspired by the impact of our work on people and organizations. Through our work, individuals are empowered to become their best selves as leaders; teams and organizations deliver sustainable growth; and the communities they serve thrive.
We foster a culture of collaboration and caring. Culture matters to us. Characterized by warmth, connectedness and a powerful sense of team, our culture enables us to deliver a more consultative and relationship-driven approach in the market than many of our competitors. We care about one another and strive to connect at a personal level, and recognize that we do our best work when we collaborate and partner.
We are invested in one another’s success. We view one another as peers and partners, not competitors for the next opportunity. We have a strong apprenticeship model in which even the most senior members of our firm are committed to mentoring and learning. We view our success in terms of our collective endeavors and shared outcomes.
We value our diverse backgrounds and perspectives. We believe we are more effective advisers to clients when we nurture an inclusive culture where diversity thrives.
We partner with organizations around the globe focused on DE&I to advance diversity at our own firm and to better support our clients on their own diversity, equity and inclusion journeys. Our partnerships include:
