Ownership and trust
We win and lose as a team. We take ownership of what we do and share in the ownership and success of the business. We know everyone believes and counts on us to deliver, and trust that we will, knowing we are all committed to support each other.
We are ready to make major changes of direction and objectives in a single day. We change as soon as it makes sense to do so, and avoid putting further time after sunk time. We have the freedom to work when we wish and make ourselves available when we are needed.
The safety of both employees and third parties is of utmost importance, we look for inherently safe solutions and never compromise safety.
Growth and challenge
We seek out novel ideas and different ways of doing things, even when these challenge our preconceived notions and the orthodoxy, building a team with diversity of both ideas and backgrounds. -We actively look for opportunities every week to improve in our roles, as people and as a company, both inviting, acting on and giving feedback irrespective of job role and discomfort we may find doing so. We find opportunities to help each other learn, be that personal support, recommendations or training opportunities.
Proactiveness, innovation and efficiency
We find solutions to do things quicker and cheaper than others are prepared to do, finding creative ways and taking risks to make things work, as long as safety isn’t compromised we do as much as we can with as little as possible. Because of this, we have many failures, but we make them quickly, cheaply and once. We focus on delivering what our customers want, rather than what we think they want. We take the time to step back, observe, learn and ask why? We set audacious objectives and track our progress from both an internal and external perspective.
We value everyone’s ideas, time and personality, including our own. We engage with everyone’s ideas and ensure that ours are also expressed. If we will have something more important than a meeting or deadline we scheduled, we communicate this immediately and don’t expect others to wait for us.
There are no competitors, only collaborators we aren’t yet working with. We make win-win deals with collaborators, customers, suppliers and funders, finding creative opportunities for a win-win, and aim to work with collaborators who do the same. The opportunity is big enough for many players, and the challenge is big enough that no company has all the answers. We apply all of our values outside of the company as well as inside.
We aim to build an inherently sustainable company, ensuring both our everyday and major decisions lead to sustainability for the company, for the environment and the community. We believe a focus on all three aspects will lead to greater success in all 3 dimensions.
Kindness support and happiness
We support each other no matter who, where or when, and from a personal perspective as well as a professional one. We go out of our way to learn about each other as people as well as teammates, and endeavour to make a teammate smile each day. Our policies are a baseline, and we will take into account the needs and feelings of every individual when making decisions.
We commit 100% to achieve agreed goals and perspectives, even when they differ from what we might have set in the first place. We bring a genuine enthusiasm and excitement to everything that we do and extend this enthusiasm to the public and our collaborators.
