In our department we value creativity. We have a pretty relaxed environment. Hours aren’t 100% scripted and our dress code is pretty relaxed. We have a voice in the design of our offices and creative spaces. In the Higher Education world I would say we operate outside of the norm.
However, none of this would work if we didn’t also value hard work and have pretty high quality standards. As the title suggests whatever it takes to get the job done is sort of our mantra. If that means working from a coffee shop, or alone in your office. If it means blasting 80’s rock or listening to Mozart on your headphones. We do what works best.
