Our values are trust, integrity and transparency. Here is what they mean to us.
Trust is the basis for everything that we do. This is the basis for how we work in the team, this is how we work with our business partners and clients. If they didn’t trust us to act in their best interest, we would not have the same possibilities that we have today.
Our contributors trust us to commercialise the work that they do for us, and they take the risk because they trust us. In the team, we trust each other and are confident that there is always someone there to have your back, to catch you should you fall. Trust add strength to the team and to the business.
Trust. It takes long time to build it. It takes a second to breach it beyond repair. We are very conscious about this.
In our view, integrity is the most valuable you own as a human being. If you don’t have integrity, and do the right thing, then you have nothing left because no one will trust you again. Those are strong words, but this is important.
Scientific integrity is the basis for our work. Being respectful to others and open minded about other opinions and world views is also part of our core.
Transparency is reflected in the way we document our science, to clearly communicate the detail and highlight the uncertainties. It is also reflected in our every day work, where all information is shared with the team. It takes time and effort to communicate, but it engages and gives direction. If everybody know all that is going on in the business, everyone are empowered to work towards the target, in the best interest of the company and everyone in it. Furthermore, by sharing all information and involve the entire team, you can select from a wide range of ideas and use different opinions to navigate on the best course - make the best decisions.
Transparency is also reflected in the sense that everyone knows what everyone in the Core Team get’s paid. Because it is the same. This enforces the trust and also the integrity, that everyone knows that they are treated equally, fairly and with respect.
