Who we are

Our Story

Behind every successful business is a positive team, and behind every motivated team, is a compassionate leader. When I launched KVA, a digital comms and brand experience agency, I had a clear purpose to enhance lives; of both the individuals we employ and the businesses we add value to. We have always put people first and it's having a collective human drive pulling in the same direction that has made us successful.

We love being able to innovate in today’s digital world, but alongside that, we love being able to change people’s lives through kindness, opportunity and success.

We're proud to launch an initiative to make a difference to employees' happiness and increase productivity. We recognise that many corporates have a defined set of core values that aren't always seen, believed and adopted. We want to change this. We challenge as many businesses as possible to sign up and show you're proud to lead with kindness.

Kelly Allison, CEO and Harriet Gisbourne MD, KVA

We're proud to support companies who:

  • believe in empowering people to lead with kindness and compassion
  • recognise that investing in people will always add more value; both to the business and to the individual
  • value the power of knowledge and embrace consistent learning and improvement
  • believe in supporting people to achieve their full potential
  • commit to treating people as you would want to be treated yourself
  • are respectful to colleagues, suppliers and contractors
  • want to give back; to their communities, employees and make a positive impact on the world

Kindness empowers people to lead with positivity and purpose

Society still aligns kindness to weakness. This is something we want to change. We have seen that kind leadership shows an open-mindedness that embraces innovation and drives change.

In today's world, we know that the most successful companies are those that value their employees, their customers and serve a need. When those needs change, having a leader who inspires teams to reach their full potential is where you will rise to success.

Great ideas happen when you spend time with positive people

The best ideas don't always come from expected places. Sometimes taking the time to listen to new employees or those with different backgrounds, allows us to think differently.

Everybody has their value.

How will you serve the world?

We believe that what companies give back is a core part of their commercial achievements. We have seen through recently worldly events, companies partnering and joining forces for the greater good.

Whether it's volunteering within local communities, raising money for charities or giving back to your employees who have helped build the strength of your business today, there are lots of ways we can add value to others.

Strengthen your culture

Get outside of the office

Spend time as a team outside of the office. Whether lunch on the grass, charity runs or volunteer work, working together unites a team.

Assign a happiness officer

If you don't have the luxury of this as a full-time role, at least assign someone the responsibility to keep morale high internally.

Offer unique incentives

Think about what can you offer your employees that's different and makes them want to be a loyal ambassador of your brand.

Show appreciation

It's a proven fact that when people feel appreciated, they go the extra mile. A simple thank you or kind message speaks volumes.

Share positive news

It could be a new business win, a positive news story, an inspirational message... share it. Good news isn't heard enough on a daily basis.

Listen and learn

No matter how much experience we have in our jobs, we can always learn from other people. Value opinions of all levels of experience.
