Our Policies

It's not just what we do. It's how we do it.

Privacy & Confidentiality

We abide by multiple sources of privacy and confidentiality regulation. Without the trust and confidence of clients in our ability to safeguard information, our business cannot operate. We are committed to responsible stewardship of client information.

Sustainability is more than a buzz word, and encompasses how a company operates at the everyday level. We encourage all prospects, customers and community members to embrace a sustainability mindset.

We discourage the taking of unnecessary, discretionary fossil fuel jet travel. E.g. Professional services conferences can increase C02 emissions, for example.
We limit staff commutes by embracing a remote friendly approach to work
We provide incentives for clients to reduce their carbon footprint in our pricing and service packages

Diversity & Inclusion

Business can be a force for change and help to address historical wrongs. We embrace a culture of anti-racism and inclusion, helping to ensure BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities feel included and welcome. We are committed to being part of the solution to address these issues.
