About us

What matters most to us? Building a workplace that inspires and develops the best and brightest talent. This focus helped us create industry-changing technology, countless customer evangelists and an unstoppable workforce dedicated to maintaining our special culture.

Our commitment to creating a workplace that inspires great ideas and talent has manifested in a culture that’s withstood the test of time and growth. And we aim to keep it that way. Which is why we’ve doubled down on our commitment to our original values and culture – recognising they’re the anchor for our success.

While the culture was established by our co-founders, each Workmate has been tasked with continuing the mission of creating and sustaining a world-class workplace with world-class collaboration. Thirteen years into our journey, we’re more confident than ever that we’re on the right track.

What defines us

Our core values give us a framework for leadership and help us enjoy our time at work.

Employees
“Employees first” isn’t just a mantra for us, but a way of life. They are the source of our success and our number one value. After all, our employees help us build a great company, a world-class product, and a better world.

Customer Service
Customer service influences everything we do. It’s why we lead the industry in customer satisfaction.

Innovation
We love to test new features, dream up big ideas, create original approaches—because the status quo is just not good enough. 

Integrity
We fundamentally believe in doing the right thing, even when it’s difficult. We say what we mean, and mean what we say. We honour our commitments, treat everyone equally, and cherish honesty above all else.

Fun
Sure—we work hard. But we play hard, too. From community and company events to following our passions outside of work, we deepen connections with one another and go beyond business as usual.

Profitability
Profitability is important to us, but it’s how we achieve it that truly matters. So we do the right thing, live our values, and make every day fun. Because we know profitability is a by-product of happy employees and happy customers.

Word from the top

Most businesses have a set of values, but being recognised as a Best Workplace™ shows that we put time and energy into bringing our values to life.


We believe in making work meaningful by ensuring our unique culture meets the needs of all our employees. The first step is to make culture a priority, which requires more than simply paying it lip service. Our leadership team work together to make our employee experience and culture a priority every day.

Carolyn Horne
Group vice president Northern Europe and South Africa
