Quality of Work Life: an evolving definition
We aim to deliver superior value and tangible results to our clients as they navigate the digital revolution.
We strive to deliver superior value and tangible results for our clients by leveraging our expertise and empowering our people. We are committed to raising the bar for ourselves and our industry, which is why we recruit top talent and provide the tools and career support they need to thrive and excel. Our commitment to excellence drives our business and has ensured the trust of our clients.
Entrepreneurship is a cornerstone of our firm; the drive to grow has been a constant since our founding. This inspires a working environment that encourages the resourcefulness, risk taking, and tenacity required to transform original and cutting-edge ideas into action. Our entrepreneurial spirit emboldens us to confidently meet the challenges of tomorrow, continuously building legitimacy vis-à-vis our clients and influencing the ecosystems in which we operate.
We are convinced that, in order to deliver superior value to our clients, innovation takes center stage. As a result, our work culture lends itself to anticipation and divergent, outside-the-box thinking, which drives our investment and positioning beyond traditional consulting.
We believe that creating a sense of community is a key to success, that working together enables us to achieve our greatest potential, at once as individuals and as a firm. We therefore aim to cultivate a global culture of sharing: exchanging ideas and resources, sharing in success, and building each other up, across working groups, business units, and geographies.
There is no one-size-fits-all in career development and wellbeing. We value our talent, and believe that individuality and diversity are key to supporting growth. This is why we have rejected the “up and out” model in favor of a more flexible, tailored approach, proposing an array of possible career paths and opportunities for internal engagement. We strive to cultivate an inclusive and supportive environment in which all are encouraged to be their authentic selves and given the flexibility to pursue a meaningful career. By supporting our people in this way, we empower them to explore new ways of thinking, propelling us all forward.
We know that a healthy work-life balance is crucial for wellbeing and productivity, so we strive to instill in our work culture a spirit of collaboration, empathy, and inclusion, while shaping flexible policies and practices that allow for both ambitious career progression and a rich personal life. This includes focusing client assignments on local markets, so that business travel is voluntary. At the end of the day, our goal is to enable our people to find the balance that’s right for them.
An expression of our values, our Sia Village concept describes our commitment to fostering a sense of community within and among our offices. We believe that knowledge sharing is the key, not only to innovation, but to the growth and development of our people. Working together allows us to challenge one another and, as a result, raise the bar in our commitment to excellence, both individually and collectively. The conception of our offices is, therefore, a focal point of the Sia Village. Sia Partners office spaces worldwide follow a cohesive design scheme, intended to facilitate teamwork and encourage community and wellbeing. To cultivate a sense of togetherness between offices, our employees have access to a host of collaborative tools and internal networks, like DEIB @ Sia Partners and BU or sector-related clubs. Outside of the office, corporate events, like our annual seminars, are occasions for our people to connect with colleagues from all over the world, in a context that is unique and memorable.
