Values & Culture
Our corporate culture is based on community, trust, team spirit and the willingness to grow together.
In addition to a sense of performance and hard work, integrity and attentiveness are among the cornerstones of our interaction.
We maintain open, respectful and vulnerable communication, learn from mistakes and benefit from active exchange with our colleagues and partners. We are proud of a corporate climate in which everyone with individual strengths and weaknesses is welcome, we support each other and motivate each other to new perspectives.
We seek and break new grounds.
We are aware of the fact that innovation can only be achieved when we are open to others and the world in general. We impress and inspire ourselves and our customers with our innovative solutions and services of outstanding quality and generate genuine added value. We are capable of thinking big and developing visionary ideas. We believe in creating something new. Together, we establish concrete implementation steps for achieving our objectives.
We are mindful of ourselves and others and use our energy consciously and purposefully.
Healthy relationships are fundamental. To foster such relationships, we actively give feedback to the Communities and also demand feedback from them. We give hope by giving our best in every respect. With a spirit of realistic optimism we call common practices into question while also accepting limits. Challenges and crises help us in our professional and personal development, overcoming them leads to increased individual as well as organisational resilience.
We tackle new challenges proactively and live an intelligent error management culture.
We courageously open up to others, can show our vulnerable side and also reveal weaknesses. This open attitude is one of the cornerstones of trust. The Community appreciates this openness. Decisions are taken directly within the Communities. We venture into new fields. At the same time, we are courageous enough to demonstrate restraint and support each other.
We think and work in networks and share our knowledge.
We cultivate and practise strong interpersonal skills and dialogue competence. So we can communicate our needs and concerns in a way that enables us to uphold our personal boundaries and build bridges at the same time. We proactively share our knowledge and thoughts consistently reflecting on their relevance for the Communities. To the extent possible, we make sure decisions and results are transparent and understandable.
We make and keep promises.
We are authentic and have integrity: We walk the talk. We work responsibly and act reliably with a sense of duty and the will to perform being key elements in doing so. We apply high standards to ourselves and our cooperation with others. We put people first and build sustainable trusting relationships. These valuable relationships help release and boost creativity and ingenuity.
Our team spirit and sense of community enables us to take responsibility for others.
In this way, we also share the responsibility for team decisions and their consequences. We investigate their reasons and seek active communication. We listen to, support and motivate each other. Showing appreciative and respectful behaviour, we recognise and value our colleagues’ uniqueness by giving them confidence in their ideas and actions.
