I Respect people that tell me the truth, no matter how hard it is: We do pride ourselves in being kind. But being kind isn’t the same as being nice. Kindness sometimes means having difficult conversations, being open and sometimes painfully honest. We are a no-bullshit, transparent and collaborative organisation.
