We help our partners create new ways to think about their business, but we don’t stop there. We see projects through and help implement business ideas, turning them into lasting business value.

COMPANY CULTURE

We sustain our culture through careful analysis of new and experienced hires and go to great lengths to hire individuals that will add to the experience of working at Acquis. Our core values at Acquis are People First, Advance Together and Think +Do.

People First: One of our greatest priorities is to attract, develop, and retain top talent. Accordingly, we have created a “second family” environment where each individual has an opportunity and obligation to contribute to our shared success.   We measure this success not only through our delivery excellence but through the satisfaction of the people that work here.  We believe that we have created a unique environment that balances autonomy with responsibility, offering the ability to learn by doing while providing a careful balance of oversight.  Acquis is a learning organisation that is built on the premise that our employees can add value from day one. 

Advance Together: Acquis brings insight, passion, and intelligence to the lasting relationships we establish with leading enterprises. We measure ourselves through our clients’ success utilising the agility, creativity, and focus of a smaller firm.

Think+Do: Acquis provides our clients with strategic insights and also helps deliver them.  Acquis consultants can advise our clients on their critical business issues, develop creative ways to address their challenges, and help implement these solutions.
