Who We Are

Each one of us is Barefoot

We have a culture that values each person, not just "people." We help each other reach our individual potential and therefore our collective potential. This singular mindset has prepared us well for creating experiences in today's world. Because regardless of how big the data sets get, one person's experience does matter. If you have a similar mindset, welcome to the party. We're throwing it for you.

Collaboration turned up to eleven. Creatives, strategists, business leads, technologists, data/analytics/search experts and clients, with diverse backgrounds and experiences, all working together to solve problems. It's how we create memorable experiences and establish more meaningful connections between consumers and brands.

Our culture

At Barefoot, we know exceptional work begins with an exceptional work environment. That’s why we have culture teams dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion; giving back; health and wellness; social events; and sustainability. At our annual “Barefies” celebration, we give special recognition to employees who live and breathe our culture and exemplify our values.

Our core values

At Barefoot, we’re committed to 10 core values that guide us in the work we do every day. Our values are the framework for each interaction we have with ourselves and our clients and partners and are the lens through which we recruit the best talent. Our monthly "Kudos” awards program recognizes employees who bring these values to life.

Barefoot Core Values

Well-Being

We do our best work when we bring our whole self to work. Because life is wonderfully complex, we give everyone the flexibility to successfully integrate work with their non-work time and responsibilities with family support, remote work options and accommodations for unique working situations. This is a cornerstone of our commitment to well-being.

Development is in our DNA

We develop each person's potential based on their individual strengths. This is proven to be more effective than focusing on fixing weaknesses. The agency's growth comes from personal growth. In fact, some employees reported growing an inch or two after being hired! (Not really.)

Community

Our commitment to doing good, meaningful work gets an added boost when our people do good for the community at large. That's why we contribute time and expertise to local organizations, including Big Brothers Big Sisters, Keep Cincinnati Beautiful and Meals on Wheels.

Play at work

When people are frequently in a state of play, they're more creative problem-solvers, and the work gets better. Whether we’re all in the office together, working remotely or hanging out after hours, we like to have fun. That means lunchtime meetings of our book club and knitting club, drink-and-draw gatherings, holiday decorating and costume contests, cooking and baking competitions, and just about anything involving dogs. Because dogs make everything better.
