Our Culture & Commitment
Why work with us
The culture of a team
Our success has a foundation of core values, transparency, fair competition, lawful conduct, and amazingly committed, talented people. As a diverse group of artists and technologists, we strive to be forever inclusive, welcoming, fair, and open. We take joy in the diversity of our teams, the impact of togetherness, and the success that is achieved when a multitude of ideas are heard. We believe our culture is a positive reflection of the people and clients we serve.
As a people-first company, our dedication to one-on-one interactions and open access to our HQ team has shaped our culture from the very beginning. We believe that our best work is done when our talent is not only engaged in their day-to-day work but feels supported by their peers and leaders in a true team environment…and “team” isn’t a word we take lightly. We are deeply committed to building an environment that brings value and meaning to each and every employee and freelancer we work with.
Our dynamic workplace allows and encourages our employees to grow, thrive, and build connections that foster inspiration within our TeamPeople community, no matter their physical location. Through teambuilding activities led by our FUN Committee, spotlight newsletters, and company-wide instant messaging, we can connect with our employees from around the world so they truly feel as part of the team. We also encourage professional development to expand skillsets
Ethics & Code of Conduct
While we claim to be "managing the magic behind the scenes", the magic is truly in the talent of our people and not in the way we do business. To uphold our core values, we strive for transparency and partnership with our clients and ensure seamless communication and clarity into our operation. We are proud of the trust that our clients place in us and are committed to remaining compliant in all areas of the operation including workforce and legal compliance, safety, and business practices.
Same as the work we produce, we have high standards for our code of conduct, not just for our headquarters staff, but for those working as TeamPeople around the world. In addition to our own standards, we incorporate and uphold any requirements outlined by the client for the teams working on-location.
United nations global compact
TeamPeople is a proud member of the United Nations Global Compact and its belief that corporate sustainability starts with a company's value system and principles-based approach to doing business. As a member, we are committed to operating in ways that meet fundamental responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption.
By incorporating the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact into our strategies, policies, and procedures, we establish a culture of integrity by upholding basic responsibilities to our people and planet.
Diversity, equity, & inclusion
At our core, we strive to be forever inclusive, welcoming, fair, and open, but we recognize that valuing diversity, equity, and inclusion isn't enough. We are taking action to further incorporate these values into our business practices and remain committed to driving our DEI work forward as the company continues to grow.
We launched our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee with the mission of promoting a culture of diversity and inclusion in the fields of video, film, marketing, engineering, and creative and technical arts. The Committee’s goal is to provide forums as well as programs or events to advance understanding and inclusion, cultural awareness, and community service.
philanthropy & Volunteerism
We believe not only in fostering great teams but the communities they support. With teams all over the country and abroad, we look for local opportunities to give back wherever possible.
The launch of our TeamPeople Gives initiative works to support local programs through volunteerism and charitable contributions. Many of the programs that are chosen are near and dear to the hearts of our employees.
GreenPeople & Sustainability
TeamPeople believes in maximizing the positive impact of our office decisions on the health of ecosystems and people. Each of our client sites has expansive programs and at HQ, we advocate for sustainable practices, in an initiative called GreenPeople, wherever possible.
