We employ and develop the best creative talent. Our people are given the freedom to pursue what interests them. They are encouraged to help make and influence key business decisions.
Through our Employee Forum, we asked our staff to sum up their perception of Stride Treglown’s culture. They identified three themes:
Freedom – the ability to work flexibly, progress professionally, express creativity and positively influence change across the business.
Integrity – the ability to do the right thing, lead by example, be open and honest, and act with professionalism.
Quirkiness – the ability to try something bold, unique or different. We are a practice that prefers to host cider festivals and mountain bike events to formal networking evenings.
We understand the importance of health and wellbeing, and not just for the occupants of the places we design. In 2015, we became the first UK organisation to achieve ‘Excellence’ in all eight areas of the Workplace Wellbeing Charter: a great excuse to have another garden party.
These are strong expressions of our culture made by those who shape it. They represent an attitude that influences everything that we do.
We focus on the needs of individuals and use design to improve their emotional wellbeing and surroundings. This simple philosophy informs all our work.
Our responsibility is to interpret the aspirations of those who commission us – and those who inhabit the places we design – in a way that responds directly to need. Each project is unique and our approach is always to seek bespoke solutions.
These solutions are the product of analysis of physical context and close engagement with our clients. We consider time spent developing a real understanding of requirements at the initial stages of a project as invaluable. It forms the basis for creating clear, simple and appropriate design solutions.
