Executive Compass has an established set of general work rules to protect both the interests of the employee and the company. These rules are intended to ensure a favourable working environment and the list of rules serves as a guideline and is not all-inclusive. Failure to abide by these rules may result in disciplinary action being taken by Executive Compass in line with the Disciplinary Procedure documented in Staff Handbook.
The aim of this policy is to build and sustain Executive Compass with a positive work culture by ensuring that we:
- have a clear unambiguous purpose, expressed as a simple ‘big idea’, an idea which all employees relate to closely and are proud to discuss with friends and colleagues.
- have an atmosphere of confidence, where all employees are interested in each other, support each other and project this confidence towards clients and customers.
- where employees behave respectfully towards each other, value each other’s views and opinions, work in teams which are places of mutual support, where anything is debated without a hint of humiliation, where the critique of individual and team work is welcomed, discussed and where lessons are learnt and implemented.
- where employees ‘go the extra mile’ by providing unsolicited ideas, thoughts and stimuli to one another , and where their interest in their customers offers something more than is expected, beyond courtesy, and beyond service, offering attentiveness and personal interest.
- provide challenges for employees which provide opportunities for personal development through new experiences, and which treat everyone with fairness and understanding.
- have employees who are personally driven towards organisation and personal success – intellectually, financially, socially and emotionally.
