Why join Compono?

The thing is… we’ve been thinking about work the wrong way for far too long. We’ve been trying so hard to keep our personal lives and our professional lives separate. But this simply isn’t possible. Because at our core we're the same person no matter the (life) situation; whether at work or at home.

How we see ourselves has always been tied to what we do. Which means, work isn’t just something you do, it’s part of who you are – even if you don’t realise it. After all, it’s where we spend most of our adult lives. Finding the right type of work, and the right businesses to work for, is intrinsically linked to our sense of identity, belonging, purpose, and overall happiness as people. 

But the right jobs aren’t easy to find. Because traditional recruitment methods are flawed. There’s too much focus on what we have done in the past, rather than who we are and what we can do. Which prevents us from reaching our full potential. And that shuts off opportunities we'd otherwise be perfect for, if only we knew it.

So we keep choosing the wrong jobs, and businesses keep choosing the wrong people. And this misalignment results in unhappy people, unfulfilling careers, and unproductive workplaces. 

Compono is here to change this.
