People First: We put people first, both internally (other Westies) and externally (local and global community).
Openness & Truth: We’re radically honest in communication and be transparent in our actions.
Pursuit of Peak Potential: We strive to beat our personal best every day and push others to do the same.
Integrity: We hold ourselves to the highest levels of moral integrity and honesty.
Bravery Facing The Unknown: We inspire others to be brave, and to show courage, resilience and steadfastness even when times are difficult or others have checked out.
We put people before profits. We place the needs of our team and the needs of the planet before making money. This shows up in many ways, such as the types of projects we accept, how we treat each other as teammates and fellow humans, and how we structure our corporate policies and governance. We also donate 3% of our annual profits to three charities chosen by the team every year.
We pick projects that rely on solving hard problems, which requires the best and brightest talents to execute. Competition for talent is currently very high globally, and especially in Vancouver. We rely on our team to be our best evangelists, and finding new Westies is a shared accountability we all feel passionate about.
In 2019 we created the MistyWest Code of Conduct. The purpose of the Code of Conduct is to establish a set of foundational ground rules for behaviours expected of all Westies as well as our clients, partners and vendors, in an effort to help foster a safe and inclusive workplace where we can all thrive. We’re very proud of it!
