A South African transdisciplinary consultancy driven by heart and curiosity. Forging enduring relationships with clients who are also working towards a healthier, more resilient world.
/rΔIt ˈEfət/, noun. To act diligently, with courage and compassion, towards goals that are meaningful.
We consciously direct our energy towards our vision of a healthier, more resilient world. We achieve this by enabling our people to do their best work, recognising them in their full human context and cultivating an agile environment in which their ingenuity can thrive.
/Inˌklu:ˈsIvəti/, noun. Removing artificial barriers to participation in the workplace.
If there’s one thing we’re sure of, it’s that diversity- of backgrounds, of perspectives, of thought- leads to richer outcomes. That idea gets a lot of lip service that often doesn’t translate into reality, but to us it’s central to who we are and what we do. So we dedicate a lot of energy to making sure that Percept is a place where everyone is seen and heard. Especially those who might have felt unseen and unheard elsewhere.
/kəlabəˈreI∫n/, noun. The art of working together to produce a better result.
Our approach to work is symbiotic. We foster a work culture that emphasises teamwork and transdisciplinarity. We respect our clients, and remember that they know their realities better than we do. And we seek out enduring relationships with partners who allow us to bring the optimal blend of skills to each project.
/kjµərIˈÞsIti/, noun. The overwhelming desire to know more and understand better.
“Curiouser and curiouser!” cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English).”
~ Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
We believe that progress is made by continually asking questions and investing energy in figuring out the answers, often making unexpected discoveries along the way. That’s why we prize curiosity so highly that it’s a core Percept value, and why we create a workplace that values continuous learning, tailor-made
for people who are ‘curiouser and curiouser’, who get so engrossed in creative solutions to meaningful problems that they may occasionally forget how to speak good English.
