What makes Hippo so special is our people and the relationships we build

  1. Selfless

    We put the team, client and service ahead of our ambitions. We define ourselves by the success we provide to organisations and their users and don't worry about who gets the credit. We share information, knowledge and experience to help each other grow.
  2. Ambitious

    We want to challenge ourselves, be the best we can, take on big change and transformation programmes, address significant problems, grow and have a positive impact, and be the most innovative, human-centred, and inclusive consultancy in the UK.
  3. Human

    People are at the centre of everything we do, whether we're delivering solutions for the public, our clients or supporting each other as Hippos. We treat others how we would like to be treated ourselves and take pride in upholding Hippos' reputation while working collaboratively in pursuit of a common goal.
  4. Pragmatic

    At Hippo, we are pragmatic, not dogmatic. We are lean, agile, user-centred and delivery-focused. Our evidence-based approach is based on practical considerations, not theoretical or idealistic outcomes. We add value as quickly and effectively as possible, working within the constraints of the real world.
  5. Honest

    At Hippo, we believe that transparency builds trust. We insist on open, honest and direct communication with fellow Hippos and the organisations we work with. We cut through the noise and get to the heart of the problem, our clients get honest answers to difficult questions.
  6. Fun

    We are a serious business that doesn't take itself too seriously. We work hard, maintain perspective and bring energy and pace to what we do. Enjoying how we do things and why we do them is critical in delivering outstanding results.

We allow our people to roam free and grow their own way. It’s a carefully curated ecosystem that works in symbiosis to create critical services that solve real-world problems for all. And it is a safe environment free from judgement, facilitating bravery, ideation, and harmony.

At Hippo, we believe that people and their needs are essential; that is why at the core of what we do is ensuring services are designed using an evidence-based user research approach. We also feel it is critical to apply this approach to our business and our people as our people culture is an integral part of Hippo that we need to nurture as we continue to grow.
