In the words of our clients
Half arch   Half arch

We believe that work is a part of life, not the other way around. While that may sound nice to employees, it only makes an impact if we embed that belief in our ways of working. August provided a practical set of tools to bring our beliefs to life.

Our Values

If our purpose tells us why we exist and our operating principles tell us how we work, our values tell us who we are. They are at the heart of everything we do.

Team

...even at the expense of flexibility and individual recognition. We believe that the world’s most valuable work depends on teams of people working together to achieve a common goal. Figuring out how to create teams who are capable of accomplishing great things – inside and outside our company – is at the heart of everything we do.

Equity

...even at the expense of fast growth and ease of cultural affinity. We are fiercely committed to creating equal opportunity for people in the workplace, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, and economic background. When it comes to related policies, actions, and politics, we are inclined toward activism.

Learning

...even at the expense of efficiency or comfort. We design our culture and ways of working to maximize the quantity and quality of learning. We measure achievement by the value of the lessons learned.

Public Benefit

...even at the expense of profit or competitive advantage. In today’s networked world, our own achievement is directly linked to the achievement of others with a shared worldview. To whatever extent possible, we will seek to share what we do and invite others to benefit from it.

Joy

...even at the expense of being taken seriously. We believe that people do their best when their work brings them joy. We love what we do, and want to help others discover the joy in their work.

Work with us, and change the way you work.
