The corporate values are the standards of behavior that every employee in the organization strives to live every day.
Customer orientation is an approach to customer-relations (internal or external customers) in which employees focus on helping customers to meet their long-term needs and wants.
Solving problems involves both analytical and creative skills. Depending on the problem and the role in the organization, but the further skills, such as communication, persuasion and negotiation, are important in finding solutions to problems involving people.
Employees are required to manage working on several different projects, which may or may not be a part of the worker’s technical job description. Employees need to be able to fill in for absent employees and have a flexible mindset so that we as a company can provide the best possible service to the customers.
We value pro activity and responsiveness towards our customers needs and we strive to create value through high performance and innovative solutions.
COURAGE TO SPEAK YOUR MIND
Though some people don’t speak their minds at all, others speak without being considerate. The ideal is if the employee participate actively and passionately in the decision-making process. Gather all the facts, form an opinion, make his/her case. But when the decision is made, move forward knowing that his/her voice was heard.
TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN WORK
Employees with responsibility demonstrate a willingness to not only ensure the job gets done, but also accept responsibility for the results – good or bad. They don’t blame others for mistakes and failures and if they feel that something isn’t right they take initiative and try to improve the situation instead of just complaining about it to other employees.
Reliability consists to the extent to which the employee performs what is expected of him/her. For example, a reliable employee is one who shows up for work on time and is prepared to complete his/her work in a timely manner. A reliable employee does what he/she says they will do.
RESPECT OF OTHERS
Showing respect to someone means that you act in a way that shows you care about their feelings and well-being. Showing respect for others include things like treating people with courtesy, you respect other employees time by showing up to meetings on time and prepared, you follow Ejendals rules and policies, you don’t interfere with other people’s right to look, think, or act differently than you because you care about (respect) their feelings and well-being.
The employee has an understanding of how to work effectively with other people on an equal basis towards commonly held aims and objectives. They understands that communication is a two-way process, which includes listening skills but also the courage to have their say and opinion in a constructive way.
To show respect we take responsibility, show trust, act with transparency and honesty and with "one united voice" in all we do.
QUEST FOR EXCELLENCE
Pro active behavior refers to change-oriented and self-initiated behavior in situations. Proactive behavior involves acting in advance of a future situation, rather than just reacting. It means taking control and making things happen rather than just adjusting to a situation or waiting for something to happen. Pro active employees generally do not need to be asked to act, nor do they require detailed instructions.
COMMITMENT TO THE TARGETS
The degree to which a person is determined in achieving a desired (or required) goal. Here are elements that shows if an employee is committed to the targets:
1. Choice: Focus ones attention on the goal ahead and direct ones efforts to goal relevant activities, and refrain from goal irrelevant actions.
2. Effort: Goals can lead to more effort; for example, if one typically produces 4 widgets per hour, and has the goal of producing 6, one may work more intensely towards
the goal than one would otherwise.
3. Persistence: Someone becomes more likely to work through setbacks if pursuing a goal.
4. Cognition: Goals can lead individuals to develop and change their behavior.
Employees are required to contribute to increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of an organization to fulfil the company policy and objectives. This should not be limited to quality initiatives. Improvement in business strategy, business results, customer, employee and supplier relationships is subject to continual improvement. Put simply, it means ‘getting better all the time’.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR OTHER PEOPLE’S SUCCESS
Brian Tracy explained it best when he said, “Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, ‘What’s in it for me?’” Employees can help each other to succeed for example by sharing their network with others, show how much they appreciate other employees and the contribution they are making, giving honest and open feedback in a constructive and uplifting way or simply share their knowledge to other employees.
COURAGE TO TRY SOMETHING NEW
Does the employee have the courage to break the old traditions? Is the employee eager to learn new things? Do they get out of their comfort zone to try something new?

ABILITY TO REACH TARGETS
The employee understands the vision, values, and culture of the company, and develops goals with them in mind. Realistically adjusts the priorities of goals as work situations change. Approaches goals with energy, enthusiasm, drive, and focus. Develops skills that will help him/her to achieve the goals.
WILLINGNES TO DEVELOP
A desire to learn new things and to improve themselves and the company. On an individual level it means that a person wants to become more qualified and up to date with changes and tendencies in their professional area. They also have a desire and passion for improving their own work, working methods and organisation processes in a way that proves more effective.
The employee is able to see the big picture in planning and problem solving. They want to perceive, grasp the context and structure of things, specify and understand its mechanics and underlying relationships.
Flexibility in the workplace is about adapting successfully to changing situations and environments. No workplace environment ever stays the same, so you will need to be able to change your job role, responsibilities and find new solutions. Workers with an orientation towards flexibility never say, “It’s not my job” or “Do I have to?” when they are asked to take on a new assignment.
Flexible employees modify their approach to tasks based on the preferences of stakeholders and the unique demands of each situation.
For employers, having employees willing to step outside their job description means they can get more accomplished with workers who are able to take on more responsibilities, do different tasks, and do more at work. Flexible employees are willing to do extra work to get the tasks completed or the job done.
