We are explorers – forward thinking leaders and professionals ahead of the curve – who are reshaping our approach to work. We cultivate workplaces that support the whole person, recognising that individuals have personal lives, relationships, and interests outside of work. We believe in work that emphasises health, well-being and happiness. Work in which people have autonomy over the way they work and how it contributes to living the life they want. The goal of work is to create valuable, meaningful and fulfilling experiences for individuals, teams, communities and society. Our Life-Centric Work Manifesto is to help pave the way towards work cultures that foster the type of benefits that makes life worth living. In this manifesto we explain:
