“To survive in modern times, a company must have an organizational structure that accepts change as its basic premise, lets tribal customs thrive, and fosters a power that is derived from respect, not rules. In other words, the successful companies will be the ones that put quality of life first. Do this and the rest – quality of product, productivity of workers, profits for all – will follow.”
Ricardo Semler, Maverick: The Success Story Behind the World’s Most Unusual Workplace
More than company culture
We’re often asked, “what is The Halo Way?”, and really, it can mean a lot of things.
It’s not uncommon to hear “that’s not The Halo Way” uttered when someone forgets to put their mug in the dishwasher, or turns down a game of ping pong at lunch – but what it ultimately comes down to is our shared values, placing employee happiness above all else.
It’s about fostering an environment that supports personal and professional growth. It’s about working hard and playing hard, recognising that a healthy work-life balance is crucial to employee satisfaction and productivity.
It’s a culture where everyone is continually striving to improve themselves and their team, where success is measured not just by wins and losses, but by the growth and development of each individual.
At its core, The Halo Way is about creating a culture of care in the workplace. We care about our work, our customers, and most importantly, we care about each other.
Promoting pride for the hard work behind delivering results and reaching milestones
Broadening perspectives and facilitating personal and professional development
Aside from supporting important causes, generating a sense of shared purpose and pride
Encouraging connection building, work/life balance, and shared experiences
Supporting employees to establish offices around the world
Providing the perfect environment for both work and play
How does this impact our service?
The investment we put into our employees to ensure they love what they do is reflected in the customer experience.

“What truly differentiates us is our unwavering focus on people. The Halo Way drives us to go above and beyond to exceed customer expectations. Our collaborative and innovative approach ensures that we find creative solutions tailored to their unique needs, fostering long-term loyalty and satisfaction.”
Rhys De Gruchy
Senior Consultant and Training & Development Lead
“The Halo Way places a strong emphasis on both professional and personal development. We have regular training sessions and a 1-to-1 mentorship programme that help us enhance our skills and knowledge, which is then demonstrated in our expertise and customer service.”
“Collaboration is at the heart of The Halo Way. We have a strong team-oriented culture that promotes open communication and cooperation. We often work cross-functionally, pooling our expertise to tackle complex projects. It’s inspiring to see how different perspectives come together, fostering a creative and supportive environment that leads to exceptional outcomes.”
Paul Hamilton, Managing Director
“The standard framework seemed flawed to me – the excessive rigidity, hierarchical structures, and the cumbersome layers of control that ultimately served as a constraint to the decision-making process. It actually makes it quite an ungratifying place to be for employees. From their perspective, the impact they make is minimal, or if there is any impact at all, it takes a long time to see tangible results. It hinges primarily on longevity rather than performance, which, in my opinion, fails to adequately reward individuals who excel in a more immediate and time-efficient manner, as we commonly observe in large corporations. Following a more meritocratic model simply makes sense to me.“
