Hybrid work – sometimes here, sometimes there

Our way of working has changed completely. What do we do with the newly gained freedom and flexibility that the home office affords? At the same time, how to we stay in in touch with each other? Specifically: How well does the agile agency life combine with the new remote work routines? One thing is clear: there’s no going back to our old working routine. That’s why we’re relying on a new, hybrid working model – sometimes here, sometimes there. And yes, we still believe in the power of people meeting face to face. It’s important to us to strike a balance between remote and on-site work while getting the best of both worlds. We underscore this through our hybrid work principles, which are based on our three agency values: cooperation, responsibility and openness.

Be mindful at work – have a good time

Mindfulness is the basis for our most important faculties, such as creativity, curiosity, decision-making and empathy. In a fast-paced and highly distracting environment, those who live and work mindfully, not succumbing to the stress inherent to our busy lives, have the upper hand. Therefore, we provide our teams with support for living a more mindful everyday working life. These are our mindful Ms: mindful meetings, mindful managers, mindful manners.

Our career model. Your career journey.

Under the guiding principle ‘Design Yourself’, we offer you a career model only as a guardrail for your professional and personal journey! Not everyone wants to be a leader, or work in depth in specialised areas. After the senior level, you can follow the path that suits you best and choose between people leadership and expert leadership. Sometimes you make a mistake in life or discover yourself anew, so we always leave the opportunity open for you to switch to the other career path.

Next generation leader programme

Our one-year programme for future people or expert leaders is comprised of four main modules, several breakouts and is a lot of fun. Participants become part of an interdisciplinary peer group of about twelve people learning and experiencing, among other things, how to get to know themselves better, what coaching means as a leadership skill, how a network builds a better career and what storytelling can do. One special feature to remove biases: you nominate yourself with an anonymous application and a jury selects from the applications according to fixed criteria. You can find out more about what we are doing in the area of diversity & inclusion here.
