Our values (grounded in the Ethical Principles study©(1)) constitute a key element of our culture: they are the foundation of the way we deliver projects.
ID One® – Human Factor Methodology / (1) Ervolino & Carvalho e Silva, 1991)
We don’t endeavor to change others, we want to serve others better respecting their reality
It is our values that enable us to achieve this goal: they guide our actions, decisions and ways of working in every experience. They drive every engagement, ensuring we fulfill our mission to “promote significant change, always leaving a positive legacy.”
They also demand us to see reality, to adjust to it and to work with clear objectives to ensure we deliver the results our clients need, in the way that they need them. That’s why the way we deliver is often as important as what we are delivering.
Our values are reflected in our professional environment, disciplines and tools
Every new professional is encouraged to understand our values and how they can be applied. We offer a structured training program, and regular cultural training throughout the course of our professionals’ careers to help them identify and appreciate their purpose in a working setting.
We also aim to ensure our professionals live our values in their day to day work. These include the rituals we perform, giving structured evaluations for every project, and 360-degree feedback on a biweekly basis. A significant focus of this structure is to instill, teach, and reward the high standards of work reflected in our professional environment. Career progression is based not only on technical performance but grounded on behavior that truly represents our values.
Your individuality is something to be celebrated
In Integration, our professionals are recognized as individuals, not by their position. We believe everyone’s point of view is different and valuable. Our professionals are required to speak up, to challenge the status quo and to make themselves heard.
HIGH IMPACT CAREERS
“I see the difference that I make as I have ownership of my work.”
Being entrepreneurial means having ideas. It means having a hands-on, can-do attitude. It means rolling up your sleeves and guaranteeing that every project, initiative or workstream delivers the impact that our client needs. Ultimately, it means taking responsibility for generating the change that you want to see.
Our professionals don’t shy away from challenges and they don’t work hidden out of sight in a back room; they take responsibility for creating the impact they want to see. This is possible because we value each one occupying their space. It doesn’t mean you alone have to do everything though, occupying your space also means delivering as part of an effective team.
Our analysts take a lot of responsibility early on. We live by the philosophy that as soon as you are ready for your next challenge you get it. As a result, Integration provides a challenging and rewarding career, one where you can expect to spend a lot of time outside of your comfort zone, stretching yourself.
“I shape the future of my own organization.”
Our professionals deliver results for our clients. We ensure that everyone has the opportunity to deliver the same type of results for their company.
Our analysts have the opportunity to take leadership roles in internal initiatives. It is not unusual to find an analyst leading an internal initiative that reshapes the way that Integration does business. It’s an extremely rewarding way to contribute to the organization you are part of, and a great way to accelerate your learning.
“Integration enables me to drive my career forward.”
Because each individual is unique, we believe that each career path should be unique.
We’ve set ourselves up to empower each of our consultants to steer their own career. At the start of every year, each professional has the opportunity to have a one-to-one discussion with senior professionals. This open and honest conversation allows each individual to lay out the experiences, opportunities and learnings they are looking for over the year, and beyond. This is translated into a “do’s and don’ts” document that describes your preferences and restrictions for project allocations, areas to focus on or ways to align other interests that you may have.
Professional self-improvement, constant feedback and frequent evaluation ensures that professionals have the information to help them make decisions about their future and are able to request what they need.
We are very proud of our track record of following through on our commitments. We know each professional by name, we know the do’s and don’ts of each individual, and help to ensure that each allocation is aligned with the experiences and challenges that you require.

CONSULTANT – UNITED KINGDOM
Having worked in other organizations, I can say for sure that Integration’s culture is unique, and also a reason why many professionals stay.
One thing in particular that I would like to highlight is the care and attention that Integration places on the individual and their needs. This takes many forms; it could be the fact that we have space each 2 weeks to discuss individual points of development; the ability to influence what kind of projects we do through our ‘do’s and don’ts’; the opportunity to contribute our opinion and shape projects no matter what level we are.
In many informal and formal ways, I think Integration places this emphasis on the individual, creating a culture where professionals feel respected and also supported.

Integration’s culture has been ideal for my personal and professional development because it provides a challenging intellectual environment, all the tools necessary for self-improvement, and respect for individuality. The mentorship program has been especially beneficial for me as it has provided a balance in having ownership of my work and constant feedback as I learn. The responsibilities given to recent college graduates is extremely rewarding. I feel respected and stimulated to grow because I am contributing to projects with my own point of view during my early development.

Integration’s culture assures that every individual receives and gives constant and honest feedback about performance among all levels, without regard for hierarchy. This is only possible because the company values professionals that are open about what they perceive and are willing to identify their own points of development – avoiding judgement. In this context, individuals that pursuit growth and improvement can thrive and achieve incredible results.
