We are 7people, the People & Culture consultancy on a mission to create irresistible organizations where people LOVE to work. An irresistible organization puts people first. They recognize that their people are more than a ‘human resource’, they are the most essential part of what they do.
An irresistible organization is built on 3 key principles that are key drivers of how we work:
Kindness is making the best decision for your team, it’s doing the right thing, even when it’s not the easy thing. Kindness is magic.
Empathy is taking time to understand your people, it’s assuming the best in someone, even on their worst day. Empathy is freedom.
Trust is creating space for interpretation, it’s believing that people will act with integrity, even without a rule book. Trust is contagious.
7people helps startups and scaleups develop strong HR foundations to drive sustainable growth and exceptional employee experiences. We build from scratch or work with what you already have. Going beyond best practice, we craft unique, people-centric solutions that transform talent attraction, retention, and development.
