Vernetzen's Culture and Values
Key to everything we do and stand for
Our business puts people and safety first.
We do not, will not tolerate unsafe practices or behaviour
Common-sense, uncomplicated safety approach, we follow the golden rules
Thinking and acting safety 24-7, 365 at home and at work
Taking care of our own, partners and our customer, before we pick up a tool.
Deep safety thread integrates through all of our Values, Products and Outcomes
Vernetzen principles care equally for the mental, as for people’s physical safety
Everyone here is trusted to call each other out, to provide safer working environments for teams and consistently improve on our customer’s safety and productivity…every single day.
End of the Line Innovation | Out-of-the Box Thinking
Working smart, solution-focused and planning for success
Going where others won’t, to make things work - other companies may walk away from failure, but to us this is energising
We identify, understand our customers problems - there’s no “it can’t be done” around here
Challenge the status quo for our client; fix their problems, find and deliver better ways (innovation, safety, connectivity, efficiencies and cost savings)
Celebrating our ideas; creating what hasn’t been created before
Driving deep internal innovation helps us to retain our own genius team.
Forming and Storming Teams
We thrive in environments of encouragement and competitive spirit
Stronger together - we have each other’s’ back.
Agile, we pivot quickly to do things our customers and stakeholders expect of us
No org chart required, flat structure, results driven and totally focused, our team understands what their role is, why they are here
Accept our Failures equally to our Successes
Curious and challenging the status quo, we welcome, listen and accept constructive criticism bravely; treating it as a chance to learn
Every idea is a good idea; and fear won’t help us to capitalise on these.
Seek forgiveness and not always permission
New day, and the chance to improve on what we do
We own our decisions, commitment and actions
“100% Responsibility, 0% Excuses”
Dedicated to getting the job done right the first time
Accountability, responsibility while we strive for high quality and the excellence/ results/ outcomes our clients expect
We co-operate and co-ordinate to the common goal (…not own agendas)
Crystal clear focus upon what matters the most - eliminate the roadblocks and handbrakes
Respond quickly to changing business and stakeholder needs
Most practical, realistic way of doing things
Ask the right questions of the right people.
Putting ourselves in other’s shoes.
Our culture is centred upon well-being, growth, family values and collaboration.
Vernetzen demonstrates our teams are valued by recognising, praising and rewarding top effort
Conflicting priorities resolved openly, constructively
We recognise, identify and complement great work in others
Valuing all opinions – we will not undermine decisions
Encourage inclusiveness/diversity of opinion in the decision-making process - every person’s opinion taken seriously, regardless of gender, race or religion or lifestyle
We mind our language in exchanges with team, clients or others
Argue the problem, not the person
Appreciate the capabilities of our colleagues (…and their constraints) – we will not set them up for failure
A problem shared is a problem halved.
