Innovate to simplify

Convelio’s company culture plays an important role in our daily life. It is what brought us together and what motivates us to go to work every day.

This is why it was important for us to get together and put our company values into words. Throughout 2020, we sent out surveys to everyone in the company, analysed results, organised global workshops with team members from all teams and countries and created different task forces to define the exact wording and meaning of each value.

We defined 5 company values, which we use every day in our recruitment processes, feedback sessions, celebrations, decision-making…

Think fast, be agile

    • We always answer any request that comes our way as fast as possible.
    • We adapt quickly to challenges and seize opportunities.
    • We are not constrained by hierarchy or rigid structure.

  • We are not constrained by hierarchy or rigid structure.

One example

  • We adapted so quickly to lockdown that we were one of the most active art shippers operating during the Covid-19 crisis.

Fly high, stay humble

  • We have enormous ambitions as a group but no place for ego conflicts.
  • Don't forget where we come from, remember that this all started with two young guys in a tiny office.

Some examples

  • Everyone in Operations does some day to day work, from Junior to Senior people, including founders
  • Managers actively ask for questions and feedback on many different topics, from well-being surveys to product improvements

Support others, grow together

  • We are interdependent, we help each other.
  • The biggest obstacle to success is a lack of cooperation.
  • We care about creating a safe environment for everyone to learn, grow, and express themselves.
  • We celebrate achievements together: one's win is everyone's victory.

Some examples

  • A personal learning budget is dedicated to each Convelio team member to get trained on specific topics
  • We took into account everyone's opinion to decide on the switch to a remote-first model
  • All teams at Convelio with no exception are mobilized to teach & help newcomers in getting to know Convelio in their first weeks

Go the extra mile

    • We do more than is expected in everything we undertake.
    • We never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever give up.
    • Client satisfaction is our standard. Details and thoroughness are what sets us apart.

One example

  • We did not settle for a simple price matrix. We work hard every day to create more and more granularity in our algorithm to make it more beneficial for our clients.

Innovate to simplify

  • We combine our creativity and problem-solving skills to challenge the status quo.
  • To support our ecosystem, we build simple and value-adding solutions.

Some examples

  • We identified that quotes were taking too long - so we built an algorithm that can automatically price any shipments from anywhere in Europe and the US to 70+ destinations.
  • The Product team is iterating industry-changing solutions which will completely change the online e-commerce experience at online galleries and auction houses.
  • We constantly rethink our processes and logistics chain to be faster and simplify everything.
