(our mission) AmpersandPeople was born from a passion for helping companies implement, scale, and iterate their people practices. The ampersand was chosen because of its connective property and the way it links things together and shows a closer collaboration than the word “and”, which is exactly how we want to work with you. We know success in business comes from having your people practices as closely aligned with and connected to your business practices as possible. We appreciate the diversity of style & creative appearance of the ampersand while its purpose remains the same: to connect. Our support will change to reflect your needs, to represent your authentic corporate culture, work, & values, while our mission remains the same—to help you take care of your people. By making connections with your people we will help cultivate engaged employees who do remarkable things to build your business.
