For the past 15 years, we have used empathy as a foundation for how we treat the end-users of our work, the clients and stakeholders we call partners, and each other. You'll find what we call our "artifacts of empathy" in the accessibility, usability, and research put into empathy for our users in our work showcase. It turns up in the blogs our team writes about their experience as new parents. It's on public display in the way our clients talk about what it's like to work together. You'll even find us talking about it with experts through our podcast, Bytes Over Bagels.
