Today, we announce our fourth corporate value, Entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship at its core, is that almost magical notion that a mere idea in one’s mind can be transformed into something of value, whether it’s a manager creating an internal training academy to be used for all new hires or indeed a founder growing a company into a unicorn.
Today we announce our third corporate value, Service. As we are rolling out our values one at a time, it feels very much like building a puzzle in which the next piece seems almost obvious as we progress. Each time think about what piece of our culture should be exemplified next. As an organisation that is already over six years old, our culture is very ingrained, and so our exercise now is describing rather than prescribing what our culture is, which is very different to what companies in their infancy usually do.
Following on from our first company value, our second company value we are adopting is Growth.
Most people reading this will probably initially assume that I am referring to the growth of our company being the essence of this value, this is not the case.
As a company, we have decided to adopt company values for the first time, however, instead of rolling out five or ten values at one go, we are adopting them one-by-one.
