Simplicity is built on relationships

We’re committed to taking care of our people. We empower our consultants and clients to achieve success, whatever that looks like for them. 

We believe in trust and accountability, the importance of community, and the power of women.

Our guiding principles inspire us to bring our best selves to work, each and every day:

  • Self starter: We’re proactive, action-oriented, and self-directed servant leaders

  • Meaningful relationships: We strive to add value to every conversation and use active listening to build trust and integrity

  • Innovative: Creative problem-solvers at heart, we collaborate to find new solutions and fresh perspectives

  • Learning: We’re curious lifelong learners who are continuously seeking knowledge and honing our skills

  • Energy: A positive attitude is contagious: We believe in infusing a little fun into the workplace

"I love being part of Simpicity because they have a great reputation among their clients, they are women-owned, and they provide the right amount of support and development to their employees."
