Additional information
At Ippon, we see things differently both in terms of how we work with our clients and how we engage with our people. As we are a relatively small team, albeit part of a global consultancy, when it comes to both our clients and our people, we are focused on quality, not quantity. From a client perspective, we work with a select group of enterprises that genuinely value the innovation and value that we deliver. From a  people perspective, we pay market leading salaries. But we also understand that professional fulfilment is not just about money. We actively support ongoing development in the form of training, attendance at conferences, etc, and we provide our people with the opportunity to contribute to the development and strategic direction of the business. We also genuinely believe in a flexible workweek. That is why we provide all our people with the option to work a four or five day week. We appreciate that personal/family circumstances change over time so we are happy to change this arrangement as needed. However, in the long term, our goal is to have a four day week as standard!
