TO LEAVE THE WORLD BETTER THAN WE FOUND IT.
CERTIFIED B CORPORATION
As a team, we believe in using our business as a force for good. Shouldn’t that just be standard?
In 2017, TEN OVER became the third Certified B Corporation in California and only the seventh design firm in the world to go through the certification process.
B Corporations are for-profit companies certified every two years to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
DESIGN LIKE YOU GIVE A DAMN
Average is unacceptable. Question the status quo, push boundaries and make a positive impact.
“WE” BEFORE “ME”
Working as a team improves everything we do. Go out of your way to help others succeed and understand that listening, humility and empathy are some of our greatest tools.
We put our coworkers, colleagues and peers before ourselves; our team functions better as a community.
110% … ALWAYS
Lead by example, go the extra mile, take responsibility and do the right thing, even when no one is looking.
We go above and beyond California standards on our environmental footprint. With education stipends and a mentorship program, our employees are able to continually learn and improve; we enjoy a whole lot of additional benefits.
KEEP IT REAL
Be fearlessly authentic with yourself, your work and your relationships.
Our business financials are transparent to the entire team, and accessible to all staff at all times. We’re also very transparent on our fees; we implement itemized invoices to keep as transparent as possible with our clients.
SUSTAINABILITY ISN’T A CHECKBOX
It’s a way of thinking and acting. It guides every decision we make in order to maximize the resources of our clients, team, community and planet.
We are part of the California Green Business Network to create a vibrant green economy while conserving resources and making our communities healthier. We have periodic office-wide sustainability awareness events such as plastic-free week challenge, bike to work month, etc.
Get involved, volunteer your time and build community connections.
Our employees often volunteer in the local community. Ten Over day (every year on October 10th) is a day when the team goes out in the community to volunteer for various causes. As a company, we are involved in local non-profits. We give 1% of our profits for the planet every year, as well as to non-profits that serve the community.
ENJOY THE RIDE
Celebrate the success and learn from failures. Enjoy the journey as much as the destination.
We provide bikes for our employees to ride, friendly counseling or any kind of support that our staff may need. Each Thursday afternoon we congregate together to enjoy a glass of wine or beer and share what’s going on in the office and with our families.
