Our Values

Changing work through Principles. It’s not just business. It’s where & how we work & live. It’s about Adult Development and lifelong learning. It’s about maintaining an open transparent meritocracy. It’s about where we are, where we’re going and being the best we can be.

Our Vision

At HRLocker our business and personal success is measured through our company principles.
We make these principles public to our clients, partner’s, co-workers, and everyone who is part of the HRLocker eco-system. Everyone is evaluated against these principles.

We recruit, act, manage, perform, and reward against these principles – this helps us govern our open transparent meritocracy at HRLocker
These Principles are used in selecting, managing, and rewarding employees, managers, shareholders, customers and any partner individual or organisation involved in the HRLocker Ecosystem.

The same principles apply to everyone and apply to both remote, office-based and hybrid collaborators #workisnolongeraplace.

We put adult development at the centre of our strategy (DDO). We will continue to adopt further principles that will allow us to scale and develop the business and allow us to become the best we can be.
Motivational fit factors always play a part in our company, but the company and the success of HRLocker will always come first. Motivational fit factors are particularly important as we continue to build out a distributed workforce, as our style of working will not suit everyone.

HRLocker as an Exponential Organisation

ExO’s are a new class of business focused on making a positive impact instead of just making money. ExO’s have a Massive Transformative Purpose (MTP) and ten organizational attributes in common. They are 5 internal and 5 external characteristics.

Five external characteristics:

  • Staff on Demand
  • Community and Crowd
  • Leveraged Assets
  • Algorithms
  • Engagement

(Which shrinks to the acronym SCALE)

Five Internal mechanisms:

  • Interfaces
  • Dashboards
  • Experimentation
  • Autonomy
  • Social Technologies

(Which shrink to the acronym IDEAS)

These three components, MTP, SCALE and IDEAS make up an ExO.


(Massive Transformative Purpose)

An MTP is a key component of every Exponential Organisation (ExO). An MTP is not to be confused with a mission statement. An MTP is what we strive to be and is always an ongoing internal exercise. We use our MTP to craft our focus from internal to positive external impacts for our customers.

“Making life and work easier for both Employees and Employers, allowing Employees to manage their careers in Company …and beyond”
