All the senior management team wear Core Values t-shirts and set-up and host Summit Talks, where different business leaders and people with interesting stories come in to the office for an open forum chat about their job and how they got there. They support both The Monarchy (culture team) and Green Queens (sustainability ambassadors) in their goals to create happiness and community, and to do the right thing.
