Concordis is candid. We’re plain-spoken but always professional. We disclose the secrets behind the world of consulting and staffing agencies. This is not done to hurt existing agencies but rather to remove distrust and create a virtuous cycle in the agency-client-consultant dynamic. Our goal is to shift the current industry paradigm to one of full transparency.
Fun: Our team knows when to joke around and when to buckle down. We believe work can and should be enjoyable and part of this is having fun.
Appreciation: We value candor and directness, and we only say about fellow employees what we’ll say to their faces. We don’t micromanage; we trust each other. We admit our mistakes and give credit where credit is due.
Balance: We make appropriate time for work, friends, and family. We take care of ourselves physically and mentally, and we stay in the moment whether we’re at home, at work, and of course at play. We prioritize what can be done well now and what can be improved later.
Impact: We pride ourselves on producing large amounts of useful work in a short time. Our teammates know they can rely on us. We exhibit bias-to-action and we focus on results rather than on process. We’re not impressed with how many hours you worked this week; we only want to know what you got done.
Passion: We inspire each other to think bigger, work smarter, and be excellent at our jobs. First, we want to see each other succeed. Second, we want to see the company succeed. We believe the second is a symptom of the first. We celebrate wins and we bounce back quickly from setbacks.
Innovation: We challenge prevailing ideas and assumptions when warranted and we offer alternatives. We bring new and useful ideas to the table. We work to minimize complexity and we make time to simplify.
