Return was founded on the belief that software should bring people together and make things better.  Our solutions meet humans where they are, and break down silos to empower insights, action and success.

We believe that technology must work for people, not the other way around.

The Return team is composed of past founders, creatives, technologists and strategists. We’ve all lived the problems we are now solving. We believe in the power of elegant, data-driven solutions and insights.

Everybody in an organization is responsible for creating opportunity. Every function must be a profit center. Every KPI must be connected to a business outcome.

Return was founded on that vision. Our sole focus is on helping complex organizations simplify the way they communicate with their customers. Simplification creates efficiency and helps drive opportunity. It can also help us to work together as one organization – and have fun doing it! 

All of our passion and focus is centered on harnessing that experience to help our clients achieve their Return.

Return’s Mission and Core Values

Mission Statement

Creating intelligent data-driven solutions to maximize organizational collaboration and performance, focusing on how humans work and communicate in a digital age.

Exceptional

Everyone at Return is expected to go above and beyond in all aspects of their jobs and as humans. We can only deliver excellence if we bring it to our work every day, without exception.  We over-deliver in quality, communication and performance, and never settle for good enough. We will do whatever it takes to support our team, our customers, and our families. Everything we do, everything we create, and every interaction we have with others should be exceptional.

Integrity

We know what doing the right thing means, and we expect it in our team members. Doing the right thing requires an emotional and intellectual maturity as well as possessing vast amounts of empathy – for each other, our customers, and ourselves. We understand what is expected of us, and we are responsible for the energy and excellence we bring to our work and our lives.

Humans First

We may be creating software, but more importantly we are creating solutions to make people’s lives better. That means everything we do needs to take into account that there is a human being on the other side of the screen, who is trying to solve problems. We will always strive to ensure our products and services successfully address the human problem in ways that provide compelling successes.

 

Better, Together.

We believe that when people feel respected and included they can be more creative, innovative, and successful. We know that great things don’t happen in vacuums or bubbles. Creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and celebrates diversity is integral to our success as a company, and is critical to the development of outstanding solutions that make people’s lives better.
