A place where one can contribute, as well as be inspired
Power to turn a negative into a positive, where 1 + 1 = 5
A sense of psychological safety, motivation to achieve and a base for adventure
Colleagues who can grow together and help each other
A place where knowledge, experience, and skills can be shared
A sense of belonging
