As a growth company, our people are an important part of our success. Bringing in the right people who are a fit within our unique environment is essential.
Ours is a culture of mastery and apprenticeship, of lifelong learning, of making iterative changes, getting feedback and evolving. Our people have an ideal blend of innate curiosity, with the discipline to drive to outcomes and the humility to continually learn from the world around them.
This list of ten cultural elements epitomizes “Gartner DNA”. They are authentically Gartner and comprise the very essence of what makes us special as an organization.
Impact clients' mission-critical priorities
We make a big impact on the world. The pace of change is accelerating. Entire industries are being disrupted by technology-driven innovation. The scope, scale, and economic impact of technology is enormous. Clients in every functional area of the business know they need help We are united as a team in our goal to equip business leaders across the enterprise with indispensable insights, advice and tools to achieve their mission-critical priorities.
Do the right things and great results will follow.
We know the right things to do to achieve success. We understand the economic levers of our business. We also understand the actions and activities that drive those economic levers. We all have limited time. Spending our time consistently executing the actions with the highest impact on our business enables us to deliver great results.
Embody a no-limits mindset.
Change is the natural state of the world. Embodying a no-limits mindset is about recognizing and continually adapting to change. It's knowing that what success looks like today will not be enough to win in the future. Having a no-limits mindset enables us to see opportunities where others don't. And it enables us to challenge ourselves so we don't artificially constrain "what's possible" with limiting beliefs.
Make fact-based decisions.
Data and analytics support every decision we make. They help us identify and solve problems while uncovering new opportunities. And they help us prioritize our investments. When we make fact-based decisions, we combine data, analytics and common sense to ensure the very best outcomes.
Think and act objectively.
Objectivity is the hallmark of our brand and represents who we are as an organization. Our clients depend on us for independent insights, free from bias. This enables clients to make the right decisions with confidence.
Prioritization is how we operationalize doing the right things. Relentless prioritization of our time is the single most important thing we can do to maximize our effectiveness. There are more good ideas than time to act on them. We have to decide explicitly which good ideas we ARE going to act on... and which ones we're NOT. Prioritization means purposefully planning our activities to ensure we're always working on those activities with the highest impact on our success.
Get better, faster, stronger every year.
Implicit in a performance-driven culture is the demand for continuous improvement and innovation across all areas of our business. We are systematic about driving improvement and innovation. We start with data-driven insights and execute on them programmatically. As we gain experience with these programs, we focus on improving them. Once our existing programs are working well, we build upon them and add further innovations. Being systematic about improvement and innovation compounds over time to strengthen our capabilities and enables us to capture our expansive market opportunity.
Win as a team.
We win when our entire, extended team works together to drive strong business results. We each play a critical role in our collective success. When we work together in teams, we accomplish more than what is possible individually.
Embrace diversity and be inclusive.
We are a multicultural, global business, serving clients in more than 100 countries around the world. Our teams are composed of individuals from different geographies, ethnicities, religions, races, genders, sexual orientations, abilities, generations and experiences. We're committed to a culture of diversity, inclusion and engagement. We foster an environment that encourages open discussions and ensures people are treated fairly and with respect. We are united in our mission as a company. Together, we mitigate biases, identify issues and solve problems so all associates are empowered to reach their full potential.
Be humble, be hungry.
We are unapologetically results-driven. We celebrate our successes — but we never rest on our laurels. We keep our egos in check and always reach higher.
