Our Values Make Hiring More Human
Creating a human connection is at the center of our best-in-class TRM. Our values – understand the why, raise the bar, don’t trust comfortable, choose reality, and support cross-functional empathy – drive us to prioritize creating a positive experience over an automated one. As a result, interviews are more meaningful and candidates feel at home immediately. See how our values make hiring more human – especially as companies scale.
We Strive to Understand the Why
We don’t take things at face value and dig deep to assess and understand all potential scenarios. We use research and data to make decisions with confidence.
We Raise the Bar
We’re not satisfied with the status quo and constantly challenge ourselves to improve. We plan, track, and evaluate our performance to foster learning, development and autonomy.
We Don’t Trust Comfortable
The only constant is change and we’re ready for it. We’ll walk into uncharted waters without hesitation and stay open to new ideas. “We’ve always done it this way” is not in our vocabulary.
We Choose Reality
We don’t ignore our weaknesses and only focus on our strengths. It’s critical to recognize failure as a chance to learn and grow. Feedback rooted in positive intent is a gift, and we continually seek it out.
We Champion Cross-functional Empathy
We perform at our best when we align cross-functionally. Our goals, strategies and tactics are driven by input and in collaboration with our team members, which is why Lever continues to be a leader in company culture and in the market.
