Polar Cape started out in 2010 with the idea of a company built by consultants for consultants.
We knew that a few things would be important:
For us a consultant is not the same as a specialist. Sure, a consultant brings depth of knowledge is one area, but they also bring breadth of experience, a willingness to apply it, and the right mentality to bring about positive change.
We decided to start with the end in mind. A great company should be one that people love to work at, and that clients love to work with. So that’s where we started – by figuring out how to achieve these things. We did not have a crystal ball, so we did the next best – we asked people instead!
Our colleagues told us they valued 4 main things: a company that will help them grow, great colleagues to learn from, a fun environment where you can make real friends, and a company that really respects that they have a life outside of work too.
Our customers told us they wanted to work with a company that really understood their needs and challenges, that has great people, and that knows what it takes to build a partnership.
We have amazing people working here, but not just in competence. They are willing to share, and eager to support each other to succeed.
We never pretend to know it all but if we continue to listen to what people really want – customers and colleagues alike – and develop ideas together, then we can be sure we will keep getting better.
