Assembling the Pieces: The Values that Shape our Team
The &Marketing team is growing. We’re able to offer more services than ever before, in the same flexible and convenient system that’s been working for our clients so well for so long. With our expansion, we find ourselves in a position every business both envies and fears: how to maintain team integrity when the team is changing?
The answer is simple: shared values.
Our team is exceptionally and intentionally diverse, a talented group scattered throughout the country with, actually, very little in common on the surface. Scratch that surface, however, and you’ll immediately see that our team has been deliberately culled based on skill, yes, but also because we share core values.
Here are the shared values that make &Marketing tick:
We know that we reach our goals faster, better, and more efficiently when we work as a team—from the very beginning of each project. We may mostly work alone in remote locations, but we are never flying solo. Our noncompetitive, encouraging teammates are always maximizing each other’s strengths and jumping in wherever needed. Sure, we use modern tools such as Slack and Trello to communicate and keep things moving, but for us, collaboration is a mentality that all of us together can produce a better result than any of us alone. It’s is the thread the ties all of our subsequent values together.
Technology and its applications are changing by the minute, but at &Marketing, innovation means more than being tech savvy. We are always learning and applying fresh ideas on a daily basis, and the & team stays on the cutting edge to create value for our clients. We believe that taking risks, staying educated, and learning from every outcome inspires creativity.
True, we at &Marketing enjoy a flexible schedule that allows us to work wherever and whenever we want, simultaneously and beautifully meeting deadlines and making time for the demands and special moments of daily life. We work 9-5. We work at 2am. We take days off without guilt and come back stronger and more focused than ever. Our flexibility also shines with our clients—no two clients are the same, and we always customize our skills and offerings to the unique marketing needs each organization has. There’s nothing cookie cutter about us!
What you see is what you get with &Marketing. We pride ourselves on honest communication, ethical standards, and quality work. Authenticity is not always easy; sometimes it means telling people things they don’t want to hear. For example: if we can’t complete a project to our high standards, we won’t take it on. And while we’re the first to encourage great ideas, we’re not afraid to tell clients and teammates when their idea is... well, maybe not so good. Honesty is always the best policy!
