Sarah Sagert,

Every day, I have the opportunity to work with super smart humans who care deeply about their craft and the people they work with. This team is one that rallies around the big and the small things, and always takes time to recognize and elevate each other. The energy is contagious. I couldn’t ask for a better team!

Sally Noble,
Culture & Communication Specialist

I am so grateful that I found Groundswell back in 2019. I get to work with such smart and supportive people – it makes showing up at work every day such a pleasure! The energy and passion that the team have, in P&C and in the other teams at Groundswell, is amazing and something that I have never been a part of before at work!

Liezl de Ridder,
People & Culture Business Partner

I am always amazed at the genuine kindness of our super-smart and humble people. Being able to work and play with such a diverse group of Groundswellers, brought together by shared values and a passion for enabling success for our clients, team members and community is a privilege. I love that we are giving back through our Impact team initiatives and how much we invest in our team.
