Our FRESH take on core values fuels our collective mission to create harmony between work and life through a personalized work experience.


We believe that the best ideas, actions, and results are imagined when people have the freedom and flexibility to operate on their own terms.


We creatively problem solve with an open mind and determined heart.


We listen and examine from all perspectives, with compassion and conviction, as champions for inclusivity and attentiveness.


We know nothing worth doing is easy and simple is even harder; from the smallest task to the biggest goal, we challenge ourselves to “hit it with the simple stick.”


We succeed because we celebrate our wins, learn from our failures, laugh often, and collaborate to grow, happily.
