We will encourage open dialogue, active listening, and empathy among team members to ensure everyone’s voice is heard. We will promote an atmosphere that appreciates the diversity of ideas, cultivates collaboration, and encourages individual growth.

Discrimination, harassment, and any form of bias will not be tolerated. We will enforce strict policies and procedures to promptly and fairly address violations.

We empower communities through educational support, focusing on the importance of blockchain literacy and pushing for lasting transformation. We also embrace diversity and inclusion by promoting an inclusive workplace where diverse perspectives foster creativity and innovation.

Career Growth and Learning
STORM Partners prioritises career growth and continuous learning as essential pillars of our organisational values. Thus, we take our employee’s career goals and interests seriously. We encourage internal mobility and job rotation to enrich experiences and promote cross-functional collaboration.
Mentorship and coaching are integral to our career development approach, empowering employees with valuable guidance and support. We also incentivise constant learning, which allows employees to advance their careers and contribute more effectively.
Our commitment to helping employees grow professionally represents our hard work to become a model employer. We create a culture that values excellence and innovation, ensuring our employees are equipped to thrive in the rapidly changing world of technology.
At STORM Partners, we contribute to environmental sustainability by implementing various practices and initiatives that reduce our ecological footprint and promote responsible resource management. Primarily, we promote remote work options to save resources and reduce office-related energy consumption. We also offer flexible work arrangements to reduce commuting and associated emissions.
If transportation is necessary, we encourage employees to use public transportation, carpool or bike to work. While many of our employees work outside of Montreux, we encourage travel (and particularly air travel) only when it’s absolutely necessary. At the same time, we regularly calculate our company’s carbon footprint and consider investing in carbon offset projects that neutralise or mitigate the greenhouse gas emissions we cannot avoid.
At our company headquarters, we have invested in energy-efficient appliances, lighting, and heating/cooling systems. we also encourage employees to turn off lights and equipment when not in use. We have also reduced waste by using digital documents, encouraging reusable items like water bottles and coffee cups and promoting water-conscious behaviours among employees.
Lastly, we regularly conduct awareness campaigns to educate employees about environmental sustainability and encourage them to adopt eco-friendly practices at work and at home.
STORM Partners deeply values work-life balance as a fundamental aspect of our corporate culture. Employee well-being, job satisfaction, and overall productivity all come by maintaining a healthy balance between our team members’ personal and professional lives.
Our belief is based on the fact that a harmonious lifestyle positively impacts both physical and mental health. When employees have the opportunity to take time for rest and engage in activities they enjoy outside of work, they return to their tasks with renewed energy and focus. This, in turn, fosters creativity, innovative thinking, and a dynamic work environment. STORM Partner’s policies include flexible working hours, and remote work options, underscoring our commitment to supporting our employees through various life stages.
