A bit about us
We live in an increasingly virtual world. The data we share every day reflects our identities. And this data offers a massive opportunity for businesses that understand it. But it’s a balancing act; identity is a deeply personal matter. As a result, companies need to treat their customers as individuals not just business opportunities. That’s where we, at GBG, come in. We believe everyone should be able to conduct business safely and efficiently, everywhere. And we do that by using identity intelligently.
At GBG, we're building a culture of engagement built on being clear on the desired outcomes, and then giving people the support and flexibility to deliver. We have ambitious aspirations though, so there's also accountability, but this comes with recognition for results. We're entering new markets and territories, and growing fast (currently over 700 people across 15 countries, on 4 continents). To help us achieve this we ensure every employee, irrespective of their role or location, is clear on our plans and then provide absolute transparency for how we're tracking against it. We do this via our VOS2020 (Vision, Objectives, Strategies) which is broken down to departmental and even team member level, and guides us towards 2020. This provides exciting opportunities for growth, personally and professionally.
