At Totem we believe that connections and interactions among people are at the core of all effective change and organizational performance.
A totem’s purpose is to watch over a group of people – a tribe, clan or family. The word originated from the Algonquian language meaning “kinship group.” Totems help tell the story of the people they represent. We work as a team alongside our clients to make impact and design a new future.
Our culture and values create a unique client and employee experience that sets us apart in the market.
Totem is built on a fundamental belief in diversity, inclusiveness and clear values that drive organizational decision making. We strive to create a work environment that recognizes and promotes individual needs and collective success.
Totem Core Values:
Authenticity – We bring authenticity into everything we do – from relationship building, to client engagement, to developing teammates. Key tenets of authenticity show in our transparency and mutual respect of others.
Curiosity – We are naturally curious. Curiosity helps us seek out the best solutions and continue to grow – resulting in maximized client impact.
Balance – We seek balance in all aspects of life. We continuously assess balance among work, clients, fun, family, friends and personal growth.
Collaboration – We bring together diverse people and ideas to create solutions. Our community of teammates, clients and networks exponentially improve our ideas through connectivity.
Belonging – We believe in creating an environment where people feel free to explore and grow. Belonging is built through trust and is expressed through levity throughout Totem.
