Our Values

Our 5 core values equate to our DNA. They set out our beliefs, philosophies and principles that drive our business forward each day, week, month and forever. And by sheer coincidence begin with the letters S.H.E.E.P.

S – SUSTAINABILITY

Both senses of the word: 

Our vision, of successful collaboration amongst rural farming communities in Africa, will be the most meaningful legacy we can create, way beyond the ‘business’ of Raising the Baa. We work alongside our charity partner Send a Cow, whose values and ethos we respect and share, to achieve this powerful goal. 

Sustainable also refers to our eco-principles. We always have and always will continue to strive to minimise our carbon footprint through our means of conducting business and careful selection of all stakeholders. 

H – HEALTH

Our core activity takes place in the fresh air and space of rural countryside, often with views that make people gasp with joy. Coupled with the exercise of moving around, minimal screen-time, talking and laughter, our programmes are without doubt good for mental and physical health. 

Looking after the health and wellbeing of our team, or as we refer to them, our flock, is paramount. Other than when running client programmes, we all work remotely from home so we virtually meet regularly and have a social, team-building (it would be rude not to!) activity at least twice a year.  

The shepherds present at every programme are primarily responsible for the welfare of the sheep and we only work with fit and healthy livestock on well-maintained farmland. 

E – EXTRAORDINARY

So often described as quirky, different and niche Raising the Baa pioneered sheep-herding as a means of team building and development. To this day we are the global leaders in our field. 

We thrive on using our ‘ewe-nique’ and innovative activity to build the most extraordinary teams amongst our client companies, encouraging the most creative and lateral thinking. 

Beyond the field and into the client organisation the transformation continues, taking teams from great to extraordinary. 

E – EMPOWERING

There is no one solution to the sheep-herding tasks we set our clients. The team is totally empowered to come up with their own strategy and plan, collaboratively working as a team to successfully herd sheep. 

Similarly our charity partner Send a Cow doesn’t impose solutions, they help the families grow from within.  Growing their own food to eat and to sell can be a lifeline for a struggling family in rural Africa. For every client programme we donate enough to enable one or more families to establish a rainwater-harvesting system – essential for their crops and safe personal hygiene. 

Our human flock is all self-employed, all strong and creative people who we empower to come up with their own ideas and solutions. 

P – PLAYFUL

So often described as quirky, different and niche Raising the Baa pioneered sheep-herding as a means of team building and development. To this day we are the global leaders in our field. 

We thrive on using our ‘ewe-nique’ and innovative activity to build the most extraordinary teams amongst our client companies, encouraging the most creative and lateral thinking. 

Beyond the field and into the client organisation the transformation continues, taking teams from great to extraordinary.
