OUR PRINCIPLES

 

Principle 1: Recruit good Fits

Recruiting people who believe in our principles is extremely important to us, “Good fits” with our culture. We try to recruit people with the right character, and we try to find this out during the six month probation.

Principle 2: Have Fun & do Stuff Together

 

We believe our time at work should be as much fun as possible, and we will provide the best amenities possible for our team. We will also look for opportunities to get the team involved in social events and activities outside work.

Principle 3: Facilitate Personal Aspirations

 

We believe in an environment where an employees future development and aspirations can be fulfilled. To this end we will give promotions, encourage changes of job role and responsibility. Even set up new ventures which team members may be passionate about.

If an employee is in need of short-term support due to a change in personal circumstance, we believe in being as flexible and supportive as possible.

Principle 4: Empower Employees

 

You will never be a number working with us. You will be a valued member of the team, who's opinion is taken seriously. We like input from our employees, ideas and suggestions. We would rather an employee say, 'I intend to', than, 'what should I do'.

 

Principle 5: Mistakes are Opportunities 

 

We do not blame people for mistakes. We love mistakes. We know they are the best possible way of learning. But we also believe in owning up to mistakes, so we can all get the benefit of the learning. 

Principle 6: We not Me

 

We are very much a team and no individual is higher than another...we just do different jobs. We believe in sharing ideas, knowledge and experience, and as much communication as possible between all levels.

Principle 7: No Dramas Please

We don't do people dramas that detract us from our work. We have an open door policy at all times, and any issues resolved quickly. We are not interested in people who cause discontent in our business, our focus needs to be on giving service.

Principle 8: Service leading to Profit

 

Our main focus is on Service. Service to our Clients, Service to our Employees. We believe profit will inevitably follow if we serve our staff and clients.

Our motto is: “Job for Life – Client for life.”

If we serve our employees and clients well. We feel there is a good chance they will want to stay with us. So our goal is to provide a Job for life and to work with our clients for life.
