And that’s how we want our workplace to be too – life (and work) at Once Upon should definitely be filled with happiness. Because happiness is the key to success, not the other way around. Right?
We strive for a safe, caring environment that gives everyone space to be their whole self, all the time. If you feel free and have fun at your job, it is easier to feel passion and responsibility for what you do.

And we always strive to make things better, for our Once Uponers, for our planet and for each other.
Through innovation, co-creation, transparency and our collective knowledge as a team we always aim to bring value to our Once Uponers. And that collective brain grows with every new colleague that we welcome to the team, enriching us with new perspectives, experiences and views on life. If you’re looking for a little more happiness in your life and feel like working at Once Upon would be fun, well, that new colleague might just be you!
