Who We Are

Founded in 2011, exaqueo is a boutique, bespoke consultancy on a mission:

To help organizations gain competitive advantage through their workforce.

  • The long-term value in creating a culture that sustains
  • The market value in an authentic employer brand
  • The bottom line value in having a talent strategy

Our Name

exaqueo (ex-ACK-we-o) comes from a Latin word, ex aequeo, which means on equal footing. Every organization comes to market with similar opportunities. It's how you define yourself and how you set your organization apart that makes all the difference.  We chose exaqueo as our name because we help our clients elevate that equal footing, find their uniquenesses and set themselves apart. We're all on equal footing. It's what you do to elevate that counts.

How We Work

exaqueo is a virtual, flexible company. We're headquartered in Charleston, SC but many of our consultants work from other locations. We get our work done when our clients need it, but we’re flexible on how, when and where. This allows us to deliver great work with expert, practiced consultants that is more cost efficient.

Our Values and Work Rules

We Pride Ourselves on Differentiation.
Everything about our business and our work is about being bespoke. We don’t use cookie cutters or copy others’ work. Our work is always customized.

We Are Motivated by Efficiency…
Every day brings new responsibilities and commitments at work and at home. We’re motivated to do great work efficiently and rewarded for not wasting our clients’ time or our own.

…But We Don’t Make Silly Mistakes.
We pause before hitting send or speaking up. We ask for help when we need it. We take our work seriously and when working, we focus on work.

We Own Our Balance.
We each set our own hours and work when we're most efficient. We structure our schedules to always be available for our clients during the workday and still balance life priorities when we need to. This makes us better at home and on the job.

We’re Big Believers in Respectful Honesty.
We can’t deliver our best work unless we’re honest with each other and our clients. We actively request and share feedback every day and we respectfully push back when it makes sense.

We Seek to Understand.
When something goes wrong there’s a reason.  We work to listen and understand instead of placing blame. We take lessons learned seriously and look forward instead of back.

We Trust Each Other.
We love working in a flat, lean organization which means we have exceptional levels of trust in our colleagues to get work done. We don’t let our colleagues down. Ever.
