Here at DDC OS, we have recently refreshed our company values. For nearly 20 years we have been operating with the same values, and many of them still remain as integral elements of our approach, however, as the world and our business has evolved, it was time to review them.

So, why does the company have values? What are they for?

Our business’s values support our company’s vision and shape its culture. They are the beliefs, philosophies, and principles that drive our business and our people. They impact our employee relationships, and they influence the relationships we develop with our customers and partners.

How does that impact your business in practice?

Every business decision is aligned with these core values. They run through the DNA of our business, they are an integral part of our recruitment process, and they form part of our performance management.

Our values also tell our clients what is important to us as a business. They help differentiate us from the competition, and we often find that our clients share similar values to ours.

Every single employee at DDC had a hand in forming our values, and that was important to us, to know that in all areas of the business, we had the same core beliefs about our company.

And here they are; the principles we stand by, and the values we are proud to call part of our DNA:

Excellence – We put our clients at the heart of everything we do, and continually aim to do better. Our business has and continues to prosper through excellence.

Respect – We are considerate of the values and beliefs of others, recognising that our success depends upon the commitment, capabilities and diversity of our employees.

Integrity – We operate ethically, with trust and honesty; taking ownership and accountability for our actions.

Leadership We recognise talent, and nurture this; empowering our people to lead us forward and shape our future.

Creative – Our focus is on continually moving forwards, finding new and creative ways to serve our clients and our team.

Fun – We are in this business because we love what we do; we will work hard to deliver great results to our clients, and to do it with a smile on our face.

If you share these values and want to work with a partner that works each day with these values, then get in touch today and let’s see how collectively we can progress your business.
