We have a deeply ingrained mission to generate and use rigorous evidence. We think critically about our allocation of time and resources to have the greatest possible influence; when choosing projects, impact is our first criterion.
IDinsighters live our values both in client settings and in how we interact with one another. We support each other through highs and lows and push each other to grow into the best versions of ourselves. We are like-minded in our curiosity about the world. We hire highly capable individuals who are driven to improve the world around them.
At IDinsight, we deeply invest in the professional development of each teammate. Each employee maintains a detailed professional development plan, and can pursue “stretch” opportunities designed to build on their strengths and gain exposure. Mentorship, real-time feedback, and structured 360-degree performance reviews are regularly provided to maximize growth.
Through our fast growth and constant process of learning, staff members at all levels have the opportunity to shape IDinsight’s future and strategic impact. Teammates regularly take ownership of big, important decisions, whether in the field, in the client boardroom, or in internal initiatives to build our organization.
Nearly all of our staff members are located in the countries where we have active projects. We believe that local context understanding is critical to our ability to serve. We work closely with local partners in order to support and develop nuanced solutions that can improve the lives of those in need.
As a rapidly growing, entrepreneurial organization, we invest in great systems and processes to help people do their jobs well. We bring best-in-class practices from the private and social sectors into our work. We use data to inform our internal procedures (just as we advise our clients to do!), and invest in systems and structures to help our teams focus on impact.
