Our Mission

To deliver innovative solutions that help the world communicate, learn, lead healthy lives and stay safe.

Our Values

In 2020, the Calian team was polled to determine what were the four most important values to our team. Integrity rose to the top with Teamwork, Innovation and Commitment resonating across the organization


Our genuine commitment to our people—those we serve and those we work with—is the foundation of who we are. We hold ourselves accountable for ensuring the actions we take, make a difference in people’s lives and contribute to our collective progress. This is what makes us relentlessly determined to empower our clients, our partners, and our employees around the world to succeed.


We embrace the value of collaboration at every level of our organization. An environment where everyone feels respected, has the freedom to speak up, and the willingness to listen without judgement, is key to our collective success and that of our clients.


Our honest and collaborative culture strengthens our ability to approach every situation with courage and passion. Paired with the diversity of knowledge our experts bring to the table, this collaborative energy allows us to continuously deliver unique and innovative solutions in a constantly changing world.


Calian is committed to delivering excellence in everything we do. We take pride and accountability in being the trusted partner our clients can count on in any situation at any point in time. As one, we go above and beyond to ensure we are delivering the best solutions to meet our client needs.
