To edit workplaces so people don't have to edit themselves.
WE redesign workplaces so they work for more people and more organisations.
We do this by challenging inequitable policies, practices and unhelpful norms and redesigning workplaces where talented people and brilliant businesses grow, contribute and thrive. Together, we will deliver better commercial and societal outcomes by operating with everyone in mind.
Workplaces haven't been designed for the type of diverse talent that organisations need to attract, retain and promote to achieve their goals. Bold teams are curiously exploring the gap between their strategic goals, their workplace practices and the impact this has on their people and performance.
Most workplaces, including the practices, systems and behaviours already in place, fall short when it comes to the expectations of today's innovative workforce.
It’s time for an edit. We aim to edit workplace practices, systems and behaviours so workers get the best from their workplaces and workplaces get the best from their workers. When reimagining experiences, the culture, physical space and technology all play a role in shaping change in the everyday interactions and creating memorable moments.
Make it matter. We contribute intentionally and make a long-lasting, sustainable difference. It matters to us that the edits we make together genuinely create better outcomes for all. We cut straight to the meaningful challenges and opportunities in your context.
Speak up: We talk about the elephant in the room. We are courageous and we speak out even when it’s against the odds or uncomfortable.
Creatively change the world of work: We are creative and use our imagination to innovate. We use original ideas to dismantle structures that hold equity and equality back. We collaborate with bold change makers to redesign workplaces.
