We all have the potential for greatness.
Every day is an opportunity to do better. That’s true whether we work for an agency or need the services of one. Reaching our potential takes hard work, teamwork, commitment, curiosity and openness. It’s not about being perfect. It’s about making progress. And that’s the true measure of success.
Do you want to be great? Of course you do.
We are a modern agency for a digital world.
Once upon a time there were two guys named Mike and Colin. Mike was a dreamer. Colin wanted to work for IBM. Despite their differences (or maybe because of them), they decided to buy a little company in Hamilton that made pages for the World Wide Web. Their office was a stuffy attic. They had client meetings in a local coffee shop. And they had three rules. Work hard. Know your @#$%. And be nice to people.
It’s easy to be different. It’s hard to be better.
More than 20 years later, a lot has changed. It’s not just Mike and Colin now. Today, we’re a talented team of individuals who shape Human_Code with who we are, what we know and what we care about. We don’t build web pages anymore. Today, we use people power and digital tools to help our clients create amazing experiences for their customers in a crowded and confusing online landscape.
In the process, we help each other reach our potential for greatness.
Greatness is a marathon, not a sprint.
You can tell a lot about a company by its culture, and we wanted to be clear about ours. That’s why we wrote our Culture Code—six brave statements that reflect who we are and who we want to be. Here they are.
WE ARE EXTRAORDINARY.
We stand out, stand up and sometimes stand corrected.
WE ARE INVESTED.
We give a %$#@ so our clients kick $#@. We aren’t afraid of commitment. And we give back.
WE’RE IN IT TO LEARN AND TEACH.
We live an open source lifestyle and consider every client a classroom.
WE LIKE THE WORD TRUST.
We don’t ask for it, we earn it.
WE ADD VALUE.
We do work that matters: to us, our company, our clients and our community.
WE ARE HAPPY.
Because if we aren’t, who cares about the other stuff?
