Our Values

Relationships

We believe that strong relationships, collaboration and trust are paramount in bringing about positive change.

What this looks like: we can look each other in the eye and know that our teammates care about us and will do what it takes to foster resilient relationships.

Excellence.JPG

Excellence

We deliver exceptional quality and value and are accountable in everything we do.

What this looks like: we see projects through, start to finish. On rare occasions, this also means we “burn the midnight oil”… but we do it together, as a team – and we have fun.

Integration

We understand and integrate diverse perspectives and innovative approaches into our work and anticipate and respond to changing realities.

What this looks like: we have learned about each other’s unique thinking styles and appreciate how those attributes create better outcomes for all.

Respect.JPG

Respect

We create a supportive work environment within our team and with our partners and clients, respecting professional and personal commitments.

What this looks like: we work exceptionally hard 9 – 5, or 7 – 3, or Monday – Thursday, or leading-up to a three-week backpacking trip in South America.

More than just...

…the job

At Stratos, none of us ever wears just one “hat”.  We are curious, capable and dedicated to growing the business, and there is never a shortage of “hats” to help make that happen.  Examples include:

  • Taking on a leadership role in the renovation of our offices
  • Managing all social events and team-building exercises
  • Designing and facilitating our annual staff retreat
  • Creating and delivering internal Stratos Academy learning sessions

a job

We’re pretty lucky – and we know it.  Because of this, once we start with Stratos, most of us stay for 10+ years because it’s not just a job.  It’s a career.  It’s a mission, with a vision, in the company of great people and friends.
