Our Core Values: Authenticity, Grit and Empathy are at the heart of everything we do at HYCU. All of us at HYCU take ownership in shaping and contributing to our culture. We pride ourselves in developing an inclusive and diverse company that supports our employees and customers to do extraordinary things.

The following is how we approach each Core Value:

  • Authenticity – We are who we are and we do it well. We focus our energy on being who WE are. We are true to ourselves. We understand where we are truly the best fit for our customers and when we are not. And, we are authentic in relationships: ensuring that we are honest and do what we say we’re going to do.
  • Grit – We want to win. Every team member jumps in and helps at every turn. Whether it’s staying late to help a colleague or customer or finding a better process and making sure it’s communicated cross-functionally. We just have to do it and love it…and never stop trying.
  • Empathy – We care about each other, our clients, our business, and the world around us. It's a tall order, but if we don’t live in a constant state of empathy, or truly put ourselves in another person’s shoes, we cannot truly serve the market.
