Who is Escient?
Escient was founded in 2016 with the goal of inspiring our people and our clients to think beyond what they see and have the courage to act today. Everything we have done – from the culture we have nurtured, the relationships that we have built and the values we have created – has been in support of that goal.
Why are our values so important?
We believe that our values define who we are, how we interact and engage with each other and underpin the delivery of our services to our clients. Our 3 core values are:
The most satisfying success is one that is shared, understanding that it requires humility and self-awareness. We recognise that the team is built from a wealth of knowledge and experiences far broader than one person’s alone and will proactively harness this energy to deliver shared success for all.
We have the freedom to walk the road less travelled, to draw on our curiosity and create innovative ideas that solve complex client problems. To succeed in today’s changing world, we must have the experience and wisdom to unlock solutions not yet seen before.
Courage isn’t necessarily the grand gestures or the major acts, it can be the small choices we make every day, taking action because you know it is the right thing to do despite being unsure of the outcome. We consciously choose to be courageous in all we do, unrestrained in our thinking and bold in our actions and work with our clients to inspire the same mindset.
Who are our people?
Our people are not simply employees, they are the company. We believe that the work that we do is all about the human experience and our focus as an organisation is on enabling our people to provide the most memorable and engaging experiences. We encourage and support our people to dream more, believe in themselves and work together, knowing that when they do they will achieve amazing outcomes in all of their interactions with our clients and the community.
