Careers | Root Inc

Our Story

Root started in 1984 as a publishing company, sharing knowledge in order to spark a difference. But it wasn’t enough.

We wanted to better connect leaders, managers, and individuals to each other and to organizational change in meaningful and lasting ways. We created our first Root Learning Map® more than 20 years ago with the intent to change the way people absorb information and activate change. A simple concept with far-reaching, transformational impact.

Today, we’ve grown into an organization built to help companies positively transform traditionally and digitally, but all through a uniquely human approach. With multiple locations and more than 150 Rootsters, we are here to serve in ways that disrupt, define, and create change.

Our Values

Root’s values are a critical elements of our culture of the organization and we believe directly attribute to the success of the company. They’re so importantly, we annually give out awards to Rootsters who particularly embody those values.

Creative Excellence

We are challenged by pursuing a “better way” and assuming a spirit of “the way things done today aren’t good enough tomorrow.”

Servant Leadership

We lead our clients and each other by being of service, making our clients and each other smarter, confident, and capable.

Fun

We know that having fun builds relationships, friendships, and business performance, and touches the human spirit.

Authenticity

We know that authenticity builds trust, and trust accelerates the process of achieving meaningful goals!

Engagement

We believe engagement helps people understand, learn, contribute, become more valuable, and impact business results.

Giving

We choose to give back by enriching the lives of others by giving to each other and by giving back to our communities.

Collaborative Design

We are committed to joining passion, creativity, and knowledge bringing together that which cannot be accomplished alone.

A Growing Organization

Driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, client fanaticism and a growth mindset, Root continues to grow its client base, which now includes 66% of the Fortune 50.
