As Energsoft employees, ours is a community that spans the world we serve. When we interact with each other, we treat each other with respect, we act with integrity, and we are accountable. These are expectations for our interactions, but they are more than that. They are our enduring values; they support our culture and align to our mission. Everyone, regardless of role, geography and level, is expected to demonstrate our values, individually and collectively. We each have a role to play in closing any gaps between the culture we aspire to and our day-to-day experiences.
This year, we'll gather as groups across the company for conversations to understand our values more deeply, and what it looks like when we are at our best and not at our best. We'll ground ourselves in a common set of expectations, specifically in ways we interact with each other at work, manage our relationships, and together create a respectful workplace. We'll explore how to resolve ambiguous situations, listen and learn from people with different perspectives and experiences, and commit to holding ourselves to a higher standard.
