it’s all about the people

These are our secret weapons. The hidden keys. Our unfair advantage.

They’re fully immersed and 100% committed to the mission-driven work we do here every day. They’re the proxies through which we impose our fully-aligned purpose, to create change in your organization. And then your community. And then the world.

In the end, every company is a collection of just three things: ideologies, deliverables, and people.

Ideologies can be replaced.
Deliverables can be commoditized.
People are precious.

These are the people of SHIFT.
