Our story

Owiwi (noun, Yoruba language): Owl

Yoruba is a language spoken in West Africa. Yoruba culture is largely based
on its people’s love for playing recreational and mind-challenging games.

The owl, Owiwi’s logo, is the symbol of knowledge and wisdom in Greek mythology.

The owl, as a nocturnal animal, can see what others cannot see, and Owiwi’s Greek roots, love of play and  ability to reveal hidden talents and skills could not be more accurately represented than with this enigmatic emblem.

What we value

Integrity

Empathy

Openness

Zeal

Legacy

Individuality

People with integrity are people with honor. People who value their relationships with coworkers, customers, and stakeholders. Those who demonstrate integrity draw others to them because they are trustworthy and dependable. They are principled and you can count on them to behave in honorable ways even when no one is watching or even knows about their performance.
Empathy is, at its simplest, awareness of the feelings and emotions of other people. It is a key element of Emotional Intelligence, the link between self and others because it is how we as individuals understand what others are experiencing as if we were feeling it ourselves. It’s feelings. It’s understanding. It’s the essence of being human.
Being open is the base on which civilization was created. Listening to others’ point of view, working together with respect to every opinion. It is the key of success, and the element that builds effective teams. Effective teams care for one another. Even if we disagree, we are all working toward the same positive outcome. That’s why we make the choice to be heard, rather than remain silent.
You can also call it passion, fervor, enthusiasm. It is that intense emotion that is almost impossible to describe, but makes everything possible. It’s what keeps love for what we do alive, keeping us motivated, willing, energized and passionate.
The imprint we leave. The things we do that matter. The essence of offering a real, meaningful change in the way recruitment is done for good, the best way possible. We put love in what we do, and we love doing it.
It is the quality that distinguishes us from others. And it shows. In everything we research, everything we aspire, all the things we write and say and do. The tool we designed revolves around the truth that every person is unique, and their talents flare up in an accurate, engaging way that is...unique.
