The Hemmera Way
The Hemmera Way is unique to Hemmera—it is a collective way of thinking that defines our behaviours, actions, attitudes and approach to everything we do. It provides consistency in how we attain results, even when there are competing demands or multiple ways of addressing an issue. The Hemmera Way differentiates us from our competitors by the way we live it.
We Are People-Based
We believe in our people. Each individual adds to the foundation of our organization. We value and accept each staff member as a unique contributor and a key component of our organization and our success. Our success is based on the contribution of each of our people.
- We seek the best people and expect the best from our people.
- We support, recognize, respect and care about our staff, helping them to grow and develop in their careers.
- We work and succeed as a team. Our teams are results-oriented and will do whatever it takes to complete the job successfully.
We Are Business-Focused
Hemmera is a business-focused, innovative and entrepreneurial organization.
- We value and support our clients by being responsive and providing project-tailored solutions to meet their unique challenges.
- We build and maintain strong, long-term relationships with our clients, acting as a trusted advisor to them.
- We strive to grow sustainably (economically, socially, environmentally), recognizing that we are in a competitive market place and understanding that we are only as good as our last job.
- We are focused on profitable growth that is fairly shared by staff through competitive salaries, bonuses and benefits.
- We deliver on our business targets, metrics and Key Performance Indicators.
- We never compromise the health and safety of our staff, our clients or those around us.
We Are Values-Driven
Hemmera’s values define what we believe as an organization and how we work with each other and our clients. They are the basis for our decision-making. We treat everyone—clients, co-workers, regulators, and suppliers—fairly, and treat all with dignity and respect.
- Our individual and corporate actions, decisions, behaviours and communications are based on our Foundation Values of Respect, Integrity, Accountability and Sustainability.
- Hemmera’s Values must be lived and we will remain accountable to them.
- Our Values of Innovation, Responsiveness and Adaptability will shape how we continue to grow, compete and diversify.
- We give back to the communities in which we work through a variety of significant initiatives.
We Value Performance Excellence
We strive to excel in the business of consulting. We are unique and set ourselves apart from our competitors by hiring and retaining the best consultants, working as an effective and integrated team, and consistently delivering exceptional results for our clients in a manner consistent with our Values.
- We provide our clients with peace of mind, confident that the right team is on their project.
- We are technically excellent, building technically superior teams for each project.
- We are a learning organization, using motivation, imagination and innovation to keep us on the leading edge of project outputs and delivery.
- While our Values will remain unchanged (they may be added to), our operating procedures and processes will remain subject to continuous refinement and improvement.
