Why Work at Oakleaf?
Our CEO and founder Chris Milner believes deeply that our greatest assets are our employees and our customer relationships. We succeed and grow when we can advance the interests and meet the needs of both of these stakeholders. The Oakleaf family is large and diverse with people joining us as full-time employees, independent contractors, and consulting advisors. We speak many languages and come from many backgrounds but we all come together as Team Oakleaf. We are particularly proud to say that more than a few consultants have left and returned within a few years to bring their new experiences back to Oakleaf.
We have the privilege of working with some of the smartest people in the industry who are working on cutting edge and transformative projects. We work to bring those experiences home so we can all learn and grow. We encourage cross-training and continuous learning. In some cases we have set up mentor programs so that those who are strong in one skill can help others who are working to expand their skills. We also arrange for our people to support a variety of client projects whenever practical. Learning from new environments is critical to building a strong and multi-faceted career.
Above all, we are deeply committed to maintaining the highest levels of integrity and trust - with each other and with our clients. We believe this makes us better team members, better people, and results in the delivery of the highest level of excellence to our clients.
