Can you describe the Harlem Next work ethic?
We believe that the quality of your work defines you. To stay balanced we would like to see your face most of the time but we are all different people, with various needs, rhythms and ways of working and also have to deal with COVID-19. We find it important that you take responsibility for your own (or the team) actions and lead by example.

Furthermore, sitting for long periods of time can cause a whole host of health issues. In short, sitting is the new smoking so get up! Therefore we also have ergonomic chairs and height adjustable desks.
