Our Values

Go the extra mile - Metafora

Go the Extra Mile

We are relentless in our pursuit for excellence. We believe in doing what needs to be done and in going the extra mile. We are not afraid of a challenge. We may face challenges, but we will persevere and rise to the occasion.

Do the right thing - Metafora

Do the Right Thing

At the core of accountability is reliability and personal responsibility. We believe in doing the right thing, even when no one is looking. We are always expecting more from ourselves. We value the ability of our team to honor commitments to our clients and to each other.

Speak your truth - Metafora

Speak Your Truth

We believe in being who you are and always speaking your truth. We know that being honest and open with each other is the best way to make decisions. Transparency serves as the foundation for communications inside and outside Metafora.

Stay hungry and curious - Metafora

Stay Hungry and Curious

We will not let fear or vulnerability discourage us from asking questions. We are hungry to learn and grow, and we welcome change and new ideas. It is through our focus on curiosity that we’re able to continually expand the range of tools that we have to work with.

Be cool no ego - Metafora

Be Cool, No Ego

Yes, we feel pride from a job well done. We also value a willingness to learn from others and our mistakes, try new ideas and receive feedback in any form. We celebrate the success of others and support each other always. We’re willing to put aside our own ego to get stuff done.
