When it comes to solve complex problem and to design genuine and innovative experience, we aim to hand pick not only the best players, but also the best team.
Consultants, designers, researchers, program & project managers, data scientists, creatives, producers, creative technologists, anthropologists, geeks… All may not be employees of the playgrnd*, but all will always get together in our playground.
Able to adapt
Agility, collaboration and versatility is our cultural norm. In order to stay innovative and competitive, we always adapt and get better thanks to new types of talents, new ways of working, new partnerships and new investment models…
Collaborative mindsets (& tools)
The best projects can only be made by a team, working together to reach a common goal. Each project in the playgrnd* is a new playground, full of talents, including obviously our clients… and their customers.
We’re practiced to work in a trusty collaborative mindset and we’ve developed a specific toolbox to do so, including world class digital tools (Asana, Slack, Mural…), as well as IRL tools and methods. Want to discover our Play Rooms?
We believe that the best talents can’t live under the same roof.
We respect new ways of working, “digital nomadism”, employees experience and positive acting.
We also believe in an economy where companies and professionals can amplify their performances and results by merging their expertises, in a trusty, serene and transparent environment. Together in an “open ecosystem”, we bring value from one to each others.
Freelancers, studios, startups, consulting companies, production companies, vendors… From day 1, we’ve been hiring the most appropriate experts in order to get together the best dream-teams. And we keep going.
You know what? It works.
Global AND local
People and their journeys are different from a country to another, as well as their culture, their behaviors… Adaptability is a strong clue to make happen locally wonderful experiences created globally.
BTW, we operate worldwide.
We’re not perfect. But we aim to become better every day.
Being “open” is a key, and we encourage our teams to be always more curious and expand their knowledge and skills thanks to trainings, practices, readings, sharing sessions, conferences, and meeting with new people as often as they can.
This is also the reason why we love to be involved into students programs, in order to share our experience, as well as getting from students kind of reverse mentoring.
Would you be happy to share a coaching session with us?
