Above all, DAKSA values people. That’s why it’s our first value.
When push comes to shove, we make decisions in people's best interests over financial gains and other business metrics. We have people-focused benefits, but it goes much deeper than that. From the core of everything we do, we enforce our standard of working to live. Never the opposite. DAKSA team members can expect this value from the entire organization, not just leadership — and it is each team member's job to uphold this value with each other.
Make It Better
This value remains continuous in our thoughts, a defined intention across all touchpoints of our organization. The carrot that drives our decision-making and, ultimately, our end product, this objective also waxes personal, stoking our internal flames. Because each one of us accepted the open-ended challenge to keep climbing the ladder to greatness.
People Over Profits
Relationships are our gold standard. We want to work with awesome people. Because, for us, success is measured by positive experiences, not the bottom line.
As such, we strive to surround ourselves with both smart and passionate team members and clients, those who will grow our minds and hearts and not just our wallets.
Never Stop Learning
As children, we were force-fed education, but as we age, our academic interactions are less frequent. Unless you seek them out. We encourage our team to learn: to pursue their passions, listen to one another, and access new knowledge at conferences, the library, on blogs, and via other hands-on means.
Work To Live
Work is only one piece in the personal pie chart of life, and we aim to keep it that way. Since we are only as strong as our people, we encourage them to work hard, play hard, and rest hard. Whenever possible, we help cultivate their passions. And we consider their interests and strengths when we take on jobs. After all, if you love what you do it’s never really work.
