Location – Remote
13 years ago, we wanted to create a working situation that enhanced our lives. It wasn’t about the money. It wasn’t even about the clients. It was about being good parents. And showing up for ourselves.
We continually come back to that original purpose to avoid accepting bad behavior, over-working, or compromising our morals. By putting our own oxygen masks on first, we better our clients by extension.
Our ultimate purpose is to serve you—our team—because without you, we’d be nothing. In this way, you become our most important client.
Here are a few guideposts we’ve put in place to ensure it stays that way:
- We are not a bank operating with outdated 9-5 hours. This is a full-time position, but why must “full-time” equate to hours? While we realize that sometimes you’re working under 40 hours/week and sometimes you’re working over 40 hours/week, we’d rather you didn’t work over 40 hours/week.
- We live by boundaries, not only with our clients, but especially with ourselves. Any time boundaries are instituted—whether they’re expected deliverables or known days off—we are more efficient and effective. Boundaries have helped us learn and grow stronger in so many ways.
- We are honest, open and willing to hear feedback. The daily flow of our lives can be improved by over-communicating, which opens the door for learning and advancement opportunities.
- We believe that diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) requires a cultural shift that takes continued effort and bravery. Beyond being an equal-opportunity employer, Veracity considers DEI when choosing and promoting clients, most of whom are actively working on DEI.
- We honor unlimited paid vacation time. But you must take at least 10 work days off in addition to the standard holidays, because we know how you are and we want you to rest and have some fun.
