Our purpose, mission, and values

We live, breathe, and believe in employment mobility. Our purpose is to revolutionize how we all think of work. It is our commitment to enable employment mobility among all people.

We are a values-driven organization. Our values reflect the north star of our founder, Eugene Smith II, and our managing partners, who were a major force in shaping our agency. Our values have been updated in small ways to reflect our hearts and changing times. They inform both our long-term strategy as an agency and the way we serve our clients on a daily basis. We put aside one day a year to reflect as a group on what our values mean to both our work and our lives.
