Nature is a 17-year-old agency with offices in Melbourne and Sydney. Over this time we have grown steadily to cater for growing demand, achieving an enviable record of both client and employee retention.
With a strong boutique ethos and working style, our guiding beliefs and principles are the same today as when we started. At their heart these are about putting our clients first and adapting around their needs, delivering on our promises, working collaboratively to produce great results, and fueling excellence through passion, curiosity and inquiring minds.
We’re the agency to work for if you’re after an employer who cares about your professional and personal development, if you want greater control over your success, want to exert greater influence over your environment, and if you want to be part of a winning team.
We’re the agency to work with if you’re after a partner that consistently delivers the methodological excellence and robust research and analytics needed to underpin important decisions, with insights delivered in an accessible easy-to-understand way. What really sets us apart, though, is the care and passion that supercharge the Nature approach to client service.
As a business and a brand, people are at the heart of everything we do – from the people who work with us to the people we work for, and the people we aim to understand. Our whole business is built on solving tomorrow’s problems by better understanding people, and that flows through everything we do.
We follow through on being people-first by implementing market-leading policies to provide the best opportunities for our people to learn, grow and thrive. We ensure our people do their bit to give back to others, share knowledge and respect our leadership position in the industry.
Our culture is underpinned by five values:
Our culture is one of collegiality and collaboration, which intentionally involves the sharing and challenging of ideas and points of view on the briefs we are tackling and how best to approach them.
“What makes the Nature team really stand out is their ability not simply to design and run incredible research programs and deliver genuine insights; it’s their unique capability in taking that additional step - working with an organisation to embed the insight into the team. Bringing a spirit of true immersion and collaboration in the project we have worked on together has been a real treat for us. It has elevated this work from being a great project to an incredible one, which offers our business lasting value and utility.”
“Nature have risen to the challenge of delivering analysis that goes beyond the data (i.e. the What) and focuses on the So What and Now What that has helped identify clear opportunities for growth within our categories. Overall, the team at Nature understand the meaning of ‘partner’ and ensure we get what is meaningful to the business and not just what we ask for.”
“Nature’s report gave us a tangible roadmap forward as a business, clearly explaining the insights (the what’s), the opportunities (the so what’s) and the specific actions moving forward (now what) to the wider business so that we all buy-in/believe and go on the journey together.”
“Mondelez International has worked with Nature for just over two years now, and in that time we’ve completed over 80 separate projects. The team at Nature always ensures that our projects are managed and completed with care and expertise, as well as providing clear recommendations on strategic direction. I can 100% rely on Nature to provide high quality, timely and clear insights to our business, no matter the scale of the project. Their work clear demonstrates commitment, category knowledge and insight, and is always conducted to the highest standard in terms of quality, content and deliverable. I would definitely recommend Nature in the future, as they have been a great provider of added insight, direction, and added value. I certainly consider Nature to be a highly valued strategic partner to our business”
“What we found in Nature was not just a research agency but a group of intelligent strategic thinkers who immersed themselves in our brand's problems and opportunities. The team at Nature became part of the team at Patties and whether that be for internal workshops or customer facing presentations, our partnership is born from a truly a collaborative approach, which is a credit to how Nature manage their client relationships”
“I've worked with Nature on a number of projects for the past six years and have always found them to be client focused with high levels of client engagement, easy to work with as they take the time to understand your business needs; and the data quality is outstanding“
“Nature’s difference lies in the people, who are energetic, experienced and inspiring. Nature do all the basics very well, but the team really excels when solving complex marketing problems, offering creative and innovative research solutions. They are the complete package.”
“Nature managed to start as a boutique company and retain that boutique-y feel. Really, they challenge us, they really force us to think further and get a better outcome.”
“I think the big difference in working with Nature is having constant access to senior leaders. They roll their sleeves up and they get involved in the day-to-day activity and are always visible and involved.”
“What you get with Nature is a team that has actually thought through your problem. They bring things you don’t expected or hadn’t thought of, with a strong commercial lens as well
“A hallmark of my relationship with Nature across multiple businesses and categories is that regardless of the scale and complexity of the project, the service levels of the team, their interest and willingness go above and beyond is exceptional the whole way through. What also distinguishes Nature is just the elegant simplicity of storytelling and presenting data in a way that makes it easy to understand what to do with as opposed to what it says. I candidly don’t know how they do it but from the most senior members in the business who I’ve been dealing with for 5 years right through to new recruits. There’s clearly something in the water in the agency”
