Our culture & values

Quarto is too human to be truly corporate, our imprints and businesses are too individual; however, we try and create a culture in which all our people flourish, and foster strong values to create a fair working environment.

Women at work

Quarto is dedicated to attracting and retaining the best people who are as diverse as our customers and books. Though our geographies are widely spread, we also strive for our people policies to be globally fair and equal.

People Working Together

Our culture is a key indicator of how we treat each other and the behaviours we want to be known for. Our values shape the way we do business and select the people we work with:

  • Be Accountable
  • Be Purposeful
  • Be Consistent
  • Be Excellent
  • Be Curious
  • Be Collaborative

And we've enlisted the help of a few friends to explain them!
