What Logic20/20’s values mean to me
Quick summary: Logic20/20 team members share their personal perspectives on the values we live by: "Drive toward excellence," "Act with integrity," and "Foster a 'culture of we.'"
At Logic20/20, our values are more than pretty words on a page. They're part of who we are and of everything we do—how we communicate, what we celebrate, how we deal with the ups and downs of the consulting life, and how we approach tasks both large and small.
Recently we asked some of our team members to share what our values mean to them, and their responses reflect both their passion for these principles and the diversity of perspectives that makes this such a fascinating place to work.
Drive toward excellence
"Drive toward excellence is about pushing both the company and our clients towards progress, while embodying a proactive and collaborative mindset. Personally, I believe in contributing to the team effort wherever necessary to achieve our shared goals. A prime example of this is when our leaders demonstrate this same value, like our CFO, who takes on tasks such as emptying the dishwasher, or our CEO, who personally greets guests at the front door. The impact of having leadership model our company values and promote a culture of equality is a rare strength that I take pride in. As part of my role, I enjoy sharing these real-life stories with our candidates to demonstrate how our values are put into action.
– Jade W., Talent Advisor
"Drive toward excellence means thinking and acting in a way that betters yourself, your work, and those around you with every action you take in a day. It means being intentional with your time, efforts, and actions to drive towards your goals and the betterment of those around you. A great example of a Logician living this value is when I worked on a proposal with [one of our Digital Transformation managers]. The proposal team was trying to understand what exactly the proposed solution needed to be to fit the client's needs. She continued to question the solution and tailor it to exactly what the team needed. She went above and beyond to create an amazing proposed solution that we still utilize today. She even stepped up to the plate to drive the entire proposal forward when needed and did an extraordinary job."
– Gabby W., Customer Success Manager
"Drive toward excellence means making any and every project, task, or activity that you do better than the average—seeing the potential in your work for how you can improve it and making that happen. It means stepping in where you see you can help, even though it's not within your responsibilities. My favorite example of this is [our director of Advanced Analytics]'s investment in his practice and craft to take every back-up interview, proposal, PAL (practice area lead) responsibility, and leadership/ownership—all with the kindest heart, intention, and spirit. It's incredible how much he does with such an approachable disposition."
– Sarah A., Senior Talent Advisor
Act with integrity
"Acting with integrity to me means being honest with your team even when it is uncomfortable; being willing to be up front about expectations, boundaries, and how you want to be treated are important components. For me, I've really appreciated the human consideration at Logic. Although we care about getting results, I've never felt like I have to sacrifice myself for those results, and I don't feel that my supervisors or team expect that from me either. The pressure to succeed is never put at odds with the celebration of life, personal time, and community growth. I think this speaks to the integrity of the culture because we are treated like humans with full connectivity to every part of life, not just work!"
- Alyssa G., Developer, IT
"For me, act with integrity means doing what's best for our clients, even if it's outside of our usual roles and responsibilities. That might mean steering in a potentially less lucrative direction for us if it's best for the client in the long term. As an example of this value, I think about [one of our Digital Transformation senior managers] creating, managing, and motivating a data labeling team for a telecom client. The work was pretty tedious, and the contractors weren't Logic employees, but he found a way to motivate them and make them feel valued."
- Peter B., Manager, Advanced Analytics
"Act with integrity in the context of my work means being transparent and acting with kindness and consideration of my team and our client, and producing my best quality work. My favorite example of this value in action is when I worked on a project where our contact was very challenging to work with. All the Logicians were very respectful despite not always receiving the same treatment in return."
- Anne G., Developer, Advanced Analytics
Foster a "culture of we"
"Foster a 'culture of we' to me means that no matter who you are, where you live, or what you do, you're a part of this amazing group of Logicians who provide a safe space for growth and collaboration. My favorite example of this is the Pacific Northwest Connected Hub. I get to see and be a part of so many wonderful things with folks sharing bits about their lives and/or work that break up sometimes a very hectic or stressful day. It's a place for connection and building in a way the relationships we may otherwise never have built not being all in one office."
- Lexi A., Senior Consultant, Strategy & Operations
"A culture of we means that I have the support of all Logicians behind me at all times, which is a hugely empowering realization. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses, and the culture of we allows me to lean into my strengths and tap a wildly talented group of Logicians to support my weaknesses, which ultimately drives the best work possible. My favorite example of this is how quickly people on my team are to speak up when someone asks for help. People can barely get the sentence out of their mouths before you have one or more people volunteering to jump in and support."
- Lane P., Manager, Strategy & Operations
"Culture of we to me means people come first. "People first" can be interpreted a number of ways: peoples' lives are ultimately more important than any job or project. Family, emergencies, life ... it all exists around what we are doing and we do not forget that my people, as in my Logic20/20 team, come before anyone else. We take care of our teams and make sure they're being treated with respect (including client respect).
"There's a reason why our mission says '...best company to work for and with' in that particular order. People are the ultimate recipients and benefactors of our work, no matter how much technology is involved, and people matter more than perfect code.
"I practice culture of we when my teammate's dog is sick, when my teammate's mother is suffering from dementia and I know he hasn't slept all night because of it, when a client is impatient and I can speak up for my team, when we shut our laptops to make time to get to pick up kids or get to the game or because it's a holiday weekend. Trust people to get the work done and live their lives, and most of the time they will."
- Alexis G., Manager, Digital Transformation
"To me, to foster a culture of we means creating a space in your professional life where you are allowed to be human with your colleagues. These moments just make your work week better! Then, when you've established that sense of connection and community, you can even start to see the outcomes in your work, as that collaborative culture impacts your ability to grow and evolve professionally. I've yet to meet a Logician who isn't willing to take the time to answer a question, provide insights, share a link, a story, a tip, etc.—even in the remote work environment."
- Carmen G., Consultant, Strategy & Operations
