The BuroHappold Principles
Most BuroHappold people would agree we are a practice with values that have endured for more than 41 years.
In changing times, we decided to confirm the priorities and articulation of our Principles. In May 2017 we took the unusual step of asking our people for input.
Using a mobile app, we invited debate and discussion from everyone across the practice on 15 themes. This got the conversation started. From analysis of 500 of the most detailed responses we synthesised six key Principles that reflect our combined view of what we all value.
Partners were delighted. The elevation of Wellbeing to a position of singular priority is especially relevant in a rapidly urbanising world, as is the linkage between technology and empathy.
We value human wellbeing, and are discontented with limitations. We commit to taking this as seriously for our people as our projects.
We are a diverse, one-firm culture. When we get it right, it sings. Internal barriers are always to be overcome through inclusivity.
We embrace mutual responsibility. It is easy to default to individual success. Teams need to share success and failure in the same way.
We are more than a business. We care about the legacy of our work. We have a responsibility of care as an employer and influencer in the shaping of the world.
Sustainability is intrinsic to the economic and social impact of our work. Going beyond compliance requires challenging preconceptions, taking extra steps.
It takes courage to create. Our culture fosters a dynamic between technology and empathy to gain deeper insight, unleash imagination, and manage risk.
If you live by these principles, roll up your sleeves and join us.
