Our Culture - Defined By Our Audio Team
We’re creative (standard). We’re honest and open. A swear jar would bankrupt us all. We’re all equal and we laugh at ourselves… and each other. We’re unconventional, productive and we do whatever it takes to get the job done. We like burgers. We always make time for each other and our clients. We live and breathe audio. We’re all very different and we love that about our team. We like going to the pub… a lot. We praise each other and recognise achievements. We don’t quit, we fix. We’re kind and caring. We make a difference. We stick together and pick each other up when it’s needed. We’re people pleasers. We say please and thank you. We’re passionate and motivated. We like to dance. We always leave our clients feeling good.
