Our 7 FORWARD values define who we are, how we make a difference for our clients and other key stakeholders and what we do to make a dent in the universe.
We want to lead change instead of just follow, anticipating hurdles, embracing the future and being pro-active and critical. We will never be done and we will never get it right. We do things the way we feel is right and make changes when we find out that things have changed. We accept this cycle of growth to never stop.
Being open, honest and direct is the best foundation to build and grow any relationship. We want everyone to go the extra mile in encouraging transparency and openness. We embrace diversity in thoughts, opinions and backgrounds and are open to learn from others. We openly share our thoughts and ideas with the world.
We are serious about commitment and obtaining results. We live up to the promises we make. We work hard and put in the extra effort to get things done. We strive to make ourselves more efficient and impactful, learning from mistakes. We never settle for “good enough” because good is the enemy of great.
We are more than just the sum of great individuals. We care for and put trust in each other. We do not just work, we also play together. We remove obstacles for others and enable them to succeed. We team up with one another for a bigger impact and greater happiness, leveraging on each other’s unique individual strengths.
We plan and prepare for constant change without losing track of our long-term ambitions. We embrace, encourage and drive change enthusiastically. We reward people for acting in an entrepreneurial way, taking ownership of new initiatives and behaving every day as if our company was a start-up. Only by opening up to change can we remain future-proof.
We are respectful to everyone, no matter what happens. We strive to eliminate any kind of cynicism and negative interaction. We create harmony with each other and everyone else we interact with. We do not shout from the rooftops how great we are as our actions will speak for themselves. Respect is mutual: we ask a lot from our people, but we also give back.
We are a little weird. A daily dose of fun and humor is what keeps us from becoming bureaucratic and boring. We allow crazy things to happen and even support it. We want this little touch of weirdness to happen as it makes life more interesting and fun for everyone. And in the end, it provides the extra energy to go for it. Day in, day out.
