We shaped our values together, and we’re pretty proud of what they have to say. Forget lip service and box-ticking, these words keep us tight-knit, on track and true to what we believe in. They help us stick to the plan – owning our growth, respecting each other and making smashing choices for the future.
Love and respect are the driving forces behind how we interact, do our jobs and relate to the people we meet
Our minds are lively, and we can’t help delving deeper and discovering newer, better ways of doing things.
We care about our impact, always asking ourselves the important questions and standing up for what we believe in.
We’re true experts in our field – constantly striving for technical excellence and always, always learning.
We’re driven to solve problems and get the job done brilliantly – the way we motivate each other leaves us and our clients buzzing.
Proud to B Corp
We’ve always been big believers that building a positive, sustainable future is on us. That’s why we’re committed to changing our global economy in ways that benefit people, communities and our planet.
In 2023, something bloody brilliant happened: we became officially B Corp Certified. Having our efforts recognised was a super proud moment for us – all thanks to the ways we’ve been hitting high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability over the years.
B Corp status is our pat on the back for all the good stuff we do beyond the day to day – from making big decisions with our social and environmental hats on, to making sure our customers are getting great value.
We give our people freedom to find their best selves with great healthcare, wellbeing resources and training opportunities – and we’re big on community and environmental initiatives too.
But B Corp accreditation isn’t the endgame. We’ll never stop trying to make our world that little bit better. If we can do good, you can bet we’ll do it.
Sharing the love
Sharing is caring, right? Giving is a huge part of our ethos here at Oakland, and everyone who works here has the chance to choose how they play it forward.
Each year, we all pick a charity individually, choose a way to fundraise, and go all out for the cause. Every penny we make gets matched by the company, which means even more money goes exactly where it’s needed.
We’re more than up for team events too – think coffee mornings, tough mudders and everything in between. Anything left in our charity pot at the end of the year gets split between causes that mean something to our people.
We know how to work hard, but nothing beats letting our hair down – and when we do it, we do it properly.
Our social calendar is bursting with meetups, workshops, celebrations and activities, so however you love to have fun, there’ll be something for you to get stuck into here.
And that’s before we’ve even mentioned Oakfest. We’d love to say more, but you’ll have to join us to find out what happens at Oakfest.
