People first.

And second.

And third…

We’re a tribe, house, clan, team and familia that opts out of “group think” but prefers “you think.” That gives everyone here a meaningful purpose, autonomy and an environment which allows their work to flourish.

Just ask any of the unique individuals who choose to work here and become a part of the Buddha family. They’re a lot alike, and yet, so different. What keeps them here is the unique culture that’s been organically cultivated at Buddha; it’s people first, first and foremost. How does this factor in to your organization? If the people here are happy and love what they do, that passion will pour into the quality and passion of the work they produce. It’s inescapable.
