What makes a Good Folk …
When Good Folk was founded in 2018, we were determined to create a strong values-based business with a great work environment.
The Good Folk culture is founded on five core values that every Good Folk lives by: Heart, Authenticity, Excellence, Accountability and Drive.
Not only are these principles important to us internally, we only work with clients and candidates that share our commitment to these values.
‘Changing lives for the better’
At Good Folk we care about our people, our clients, our candidates and our community, and we believe in making positive change wherever possible. The team have a foster mindset, we believe in fostering the unique awesomeness of each individual, giving back, and genuinely looking out for each other.
We feel a huge responsibility for the future happiness of candidates and clients, so having ‘heart’ is at the centre of our actions.
We also want to create an internal culture of collaboration, friendship and ultimately, happiness and we want to help others achieve the same. We spend so much of our lives at work, so let’s make it meaningful and have a purpose, with people we like, know and trust.
‘Be honest in everything you do’
Be open and transparent always! Our purpose at Good Folk is for our Folk to reach their highest potential, this is both in our clients’ businesses and in our candidates’ careers. Only in authentic relationships can we all achieve our greatest potential.
Having authenticity as a guiding principle makes it easy for us to make decisions quickly based on knowing the right path to take.
