A1 Stories follows our most important core value – it is all about US. We have to come together as a company and also find the best ways to work together. We need to stay curious, benefit from our diversity and always remember to focus on common goals. OUR opinions matter and are valued.

A smile can go a long way – also chocolate helps or maybe cake. Being open and authentic, giving feedback and being able to communicate as transparent as possible will make us stronger and prepare us as a team for pretty much all the challenges ahead. We will have each other’s backs, because that is what makes a good team, a great team!
