About Us

“Our values, and how we do things around here”

Life by design

That old cliché of work-life balance looks like this to us – family comes first, always.

We’re flexible, we reject the old 9 to 5 and we empower everyone to get shit done. Kids sports day? Take the day off! Got itchy feet? Book that trip! If you’re fulfilled outside work, then we know you’ll bring that in to work too.

Everyone’s in the social club

We love coming to work and there’s no pressure to ‘put your game face on’.

We love digital and technology but we’re human too. Raucous laughter and cheeky banter are encouraged, as is ‘talking straight’. Our culture is relaxed and fun. We’re professional but we are human too.

Reputation is key

Definition: What people commonly think of something.

We want our customers to love us. Not just like, but looooove (in the way Cantabrians love Richie). We want them to be our super fans, to refer new leads to us, and call us first for any digital marketing ideas and questions.

Too legit to quit

Yup, that’s us. We are the real deal.

Honesty is crucial to us 24/7 – to each other, and our customers. If we can deliver what you want, we say so. If we can’t, we say that too. You know what you’re getting with us. We are transparent to our customers and there’s a tonne of trust.

We are a B Corporation

Happy Monday is the only digital agency in NZ that is a Certified B Corporation.

We balance purpose and profit.

When making decisions, we consider our staff, customers, suppliers, wider community and the environment. Every choice has social, environmental and ethical outcomes and we implement policies and solutions that are about more than just money.

We care about the environment, our local community, our staff and our customers. We are running a business that tries to make the world a better place, one person at a time.

So what is a B Corporation?

B Corp is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee, or USDA Organic certification is to milk.

B Corporations represent an emerging group of companies that are using the power of business to create a positive impact on the world and generate a shared and durable prosperity for all. We are one of the first 10 B Corps certified in New Zealand.

Certified B Corporations have undertaken the B Impact Assessment, scored over 80, and have signed a terms sheet that declares that they will consider all stakeholders. It is a rigorous assessment that explores a company’s governance, transparency, environmental and social impact. B Corps voluntarily hold themselves to a higher level of accountability in these areas.

Together, B Corps redefine success in business by competing not to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.

Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,250 Certified B Corps from 41 countries and 121 industries working together toward one unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
