Continue research and development to keep ahead of the game all the time
Honesty and integrity - is one of the most essential element to interact with others. Integrity also requires you to walk the talk.
transparency - Disclose and manage conflicts of interest, ensure true and fair presentation
respect for others - deliver rights and obligations fairly and expect the same from others
Teamwork - play your role with excellence and help others to achieve their potential
Compete fairly and support free enterprise - level playing field and open market competition
Synergize - join hands on a win-win basis to create new opportunities and eliminate duplicate/sub-optimal activities and to share and learn best practices with others.
Value sharing - create and share value rather than unfairly benefiting out of what already exists and belongs to others.
Diversity and inclusiveness - include more and more diverse people and value the difference they bring with them - the more diverse we are in terms of race, skin, language, gender, region, culture, abilities, status, networks, etc., the stronger we will be as a team.
Open and direct communication with all those who are relevant and need to know.
Respect privacy where expected, needed, promised or required by law.
Perceive good about others when they fall short of your expectations by generously giving them all benefits of doubts. If circumstances suggest otherwise, challenge and validate any assumptions before making your views.
Maximize use of modern technology, tools, systems and skills.
Lose today what it takes to win tomorrow!
Optimize use of resources i.e. your time and money - keep your needs free from waste and any unnecessary spending leading to a swaggering behaviour.
Instead, spend the resources so saved, being surplus to your needs, in value creating activities for a possibly bigger and longer term return in the future.
Follow the rules of the game!
Proactively manage the risks and threats affecting our ability to comply with laws of land, obligations e.g. contracts, commitments, policies, principles, cultural values and expectations incl. health safety security and environment on a sustainable basis.
