Company Values

Customer Obsession

Always start with the customer and work backwards in every strategic or operational decision. Work vigorously to earn and keep a customer through value, service and trust.

Think Big and be Curious

Thinking small is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Leaders create and communicate a bold direction that inspires their teams to deliver results. Think differently and relentlessly find innovative ways to serve customers better.

Invent & Simplify

Relentlessly drive disproportional leaps of innovation in all areas of the organisation. Innovate for the customer and do not get distracted by competitor benchmarking. Push the boundaries to achieve the most simple and effortless customer experience.

Cost Conscious

Strive to reduce costs and increase value by being frugal, smart, and responsible in the way company assets are deployed. Accomplish more with less, even in small, everyday things.

Highest Standards

Leaders have relentlessly high standards, which many people may think are unreasonably high. Continue raising the bar for the delivery of high-quality products, services, and processes.

Responsive, Effective and Personal Touch

Be responsive and move customers to their desired outcome in the shortest time and in as few steps as possible. Work hard to ensure an effective and effortless customer experience.

Decisive Actions

Leaders have strong judgment and consistently make good decisions using a combination of data, experience, and intuition. Make the call and own the outcome. Speed matters. Many decisions and actions are reversible. The greater risk is standing still in fear of failure.

Ownership

Leaders are owners and think long-term. They don’t sacrifice long-term value for short-term results. They act on behalf of the entire company, beyond just the immediate team or goal. They never say, “That’s not my job.”

Hands-On, Entrepreneurial Culture

Leaders are “hands-on” with their teams, lead from the front, and lead by example. They believe in earning respect by how well they play their position and how they help their people achieve their goals rather than through hierarchy. No task is beneath them.

Candid Communication

Respectfully challenge decisions when there is disagreement, even when doing so is uncomfortable or exhausting. Have conviction and be tenacious. Do not compromise for the sake of social cohesion. Once a decision is determined, commit wholly.

People & Relationships

Create an environment with a collaborative “can do” culture that serves customers, employees, and suppliers with passion, professionalism, and care. Centre strategic decisions around customer experience and create a company that employees are proud to work for. Treat valued strategic suppliers the same as customers.

Delivery & Performance

Be performance-driven and aim to deliver products, solutions, and services to customers at the highest standards and professional levels. Be respectful and candid about where improvement is required. Leaders hold themselves and their teams accountable for results.
