At Harmonic, we believe that ‘brains beats brash’ every time. Colleagues are encouraged to impress you with their specialist knowledge, not with how much business-jargon* they can drop into a sentence.
Our company structure and job titles reflect this commitment: we’re analysts and community builders first, business development professionals second. With each of our colleagues fully-committed to producing the most detailed and high-quality industry analysis for their sector. Take a look at our insights page here.
*only the Four Tops should ever “reach out”.
Every customer and colleague is equal and receives the same care and attention. At Harmonic, we act, communicate and think with this front of mind, and– as with all of our company values- display of respect directly determines promotion prospects and annual compensation. We don’t do meaningless buzzwords.
For many candidates job hunting can be a time-consuming and emotionally draining process. And with this in mind we commit to polite and considered communication at all times. You won’t be kept waiting for updates or information and in the unlikely event that anything goes awry, it’s ingrained in our culture that we own our mistakes and rectify them as quickly as possible.
We understand that each of our colleagues and customers have different life experiences, abilities and outlooks. We celebrate and harness this diversity (it’s no coincidence that our UK HQ is in Camden Market!) and listen actively to ensure that everyone’s viewpoints are heard.
We measure our success as a business by our social impact, not just our revenue growth. And have consistently committed 5% of our net profits to charities and social causes which are important to us in the UK and USA. This covers ongoing commitment to supporting mental health wellbeing organisations, children’s literacy, race and gender equality and LGBTQ+ organizations. We are firm believers that small gestures of kindness can make a huge difference and reject ‘culture war’ dialogue and social division.
Our clients and candidates are people first, not a human capital ‘resource’ to be farmed. And we have been committed since the very beginning to hosting only events and workshops which add real value to our business community. Through our partnerships with Tech Nation, Supper Club, YPO and Forbes we have attracted Entrepreneurs, Investors and Executives from $1 billion Unicorns alongside Pre-Seed wizards who are ready to share their knowledge and wisdom.
We love the sectors we work in. Because we understand them so well, we understand what our clients are looking for, and any challenges their industry may be facing.
Our insights are topical and enlightening, and showcase our knowledge of the sectors we care so much about.
