People & Culture

Our people

Our diversity mirrors the countries, languages, ages, genders, races, ethnicities, orientations and experiences of our customers, and creates our company’s culture

Our diversity is our edge

How and why we do things define us even more than what we make and sell.

We are a globally distributed team. We work from where we can be the most productive. And our regional innovation centers enable us to live and work in our customers’ communities.

Our mission is to give people back the time and focus that has been lost over the past two decades. Technology altered the communications landscape and behaviors so dramatically, that people can no longer process the information they have available to them.

The future of communications is in simplifying experiences. By making the complex simple, we create the freedom of connectivity which will enable us to harmoniously integrate our life and work.

We write history every single day. And we inspire and support others by enriching and fulfilling the lives of people around the world – including our own.

Our Six Values

#1 Respect

Our strength as a team comes from our diversity — this explicitly includes language, culture, geography, skills, background, work experience, education, military service, age, gender, orientation, race, and ethnicity.

With a global customer base, we proactively recruit people who think differently than we do.

#2 Resiliency

We require and foster the personal and professional resilience which enables us to be comfortable with adapting to continuous, and often unpredictable change.

#3 Accountability

We make decisions as owners of the business because we are the owners of this business. This includes finding solutions for customers where others can’t.

#4 Open Communications

We share openly with each other, especially when we disagree with one another.

#5 Smart Thrift

We invest each Dollar, Euro, and Rupee as if it were our own by proactively seeking to maximize the value for the business in every decision we make.

#6 Global Productivity

To achieve our shared commitment to good governance, every team member signs our Rules of Engagement, which provides us with clear structures, controls, and processes.
