culture

At Ƶ Group, we have worked to build a different kind of company — one where workplace culture, the relationships it builds, and the products and services it delivers all combine to form a collective contribution to the common good. Taking principles from timeless spiritual teachings, Ƶ strives to not only to implement best business practices, but also to foster an environment that promotes equality, love and empowerment.

We believe deeply that a company can not only generate healthy profit margins, but also maintain an ongoing sense of mission, meaning and individual fulfillment for all employees, vendors, clients, and friends.

Our workplace culture is the center of this drive, built around the following principles.

Leading with honesty

Truthfulness is the foundation of all our values. As a company, we are 100% honest, always. This allows us to operate with a moral compass protecting us from many of the more toxic elements of today's corporate culture.

Importance of consultation

True consultation requires the participation of everyone at the table. Those with louder voices strive to make room for those who are usually quieter. Everyone holds a valuable perspective that deserves to be heard. We strive to create safe spaces for everyone to speak and be heard.

Rejection of gossip

We treat everyone with respect, understanding, and appreciation, be they our employees, vendors, partners, or competitors. Gossip and backbiting are corrosive habits that bring out the worst versions of ourselves. We try to never speak ill of one another and employ healthy and productive forms of communication. It is our goal to always lead with empathy and love.

our philosophy

innovation + intention  is at the epicenter of everything we do

At Ƶ Group, we ascribe to the idea of universal philanthropy, meaning that we actively pursue partners, vendors, clients, and employees who actively support programs for the betterment of the world. This is a conscious intention, that is an integral part of the DNA of Ƶ’s core mission, business model and our daily work.

As a company, Ƶ supports many nonprofits and charities, with a specific focus on those that support the education and empowerment of girls and women. In addition to corporate donations, and fundraising events, we also offer a fixed percentage of our quarterly profits to some organizations and designate multiple days throughout the year for our employees to take time off so that they can take part in community service and volunteerism.

Our spirit of service is ingrained in every aspect of business – from hiring to performance – giving our teams extra incentive to deliver the most profitable growth possible. Learn more about our Service Days, model of profit-sharing, and foundation work here.

The betterment of the world can be accomplished 
through pure and goodly deeds and through commendable and seemly conduct.

― Baha'u'llah

Our founding philosophy is based on spiritual teachings of the Bahá’í Faith. As a company, we care deeply about others and the planet which we all inhabit. We believe that profit at any cost — regardless of the implication for others, the environment, or our own conscience — is an archaic way to do business. Instead, we try to show that there is a more compassionate way to proceed.

You can have healthy profitable margins while also caring for humanity at large. Intention isn’t meaning well, it’s doing well. We set a small yet robust example of how to pair good intentions with strong business models. We measure our success by how many lives we touch positively, and by the impact made in our communities and around the world.
