Norms & Values

At Betty Blocks, our culture is highly valued. To gain a deeper understanding of our culture, as well as the norms and values that form the foundation of it, we conducted eight sessions with our employees and a separate session with the management team.

These sessions have shown us that our employees particularily place great value on collaboration, personal growth, and respect. To capture the unique spirit of Betty Blocks, we have rephrased these values in a way that is representative of our company culture.
