At Santhem, we believe that a company is only as good as its core values. Our values are more than words written on glossy marketing material – they are the foundation of our business and committed to by every member of our team.

We spent time establishing our values, ensuring they have a positive impact on every element of our operation. They needed to provide guidance to our team members but motivate them too. They needed to communicate a strong message to our customers, suppliers and stakeholders, clearly explaining our company culture.

Following discussions at every level, we set in stone the following values:

Growth

Togetherness

Quality

Openness

Individuality

These are the cornerstones of our company’s success and are embedded in us all. But what do they actually mean?…

Growth

At Santhem, growth isn’t just about numbers, metrics and the bottom line. We apply a growth mindset to every area of our business. We want our team members to develop and grow their skills, creating the best version of each individual employee. Growth isn’t achieved by compromising any of our other values, it must support and uphold our beliefs to ensure ethical growth that inspires others to achieve more too.

Togetherness

We are only as good as our fellow teammates, which is why at Santhem we promote a collaborative working environment where we celebrate each other’s successes and support each other’s struggles. Our team member’s selfless attitudes create a caring work ‘family’ with united goals.

Quality

Quality is subjective and can be measured in many ways. That’s why at Santhem we set our own high-quality standards, objectives and strategies, and don’t gauge our benchmarks against others. Quality isn’t something that is agreed up and then ignored, we continually challenge ourselves to do better and be better. Our continuous improvement ensures companywide excellence.

Openness

Communication is key to the success of any business, which is why we chose openness as one of our key values. We listen, share, ensure everyone’s opinions are heard and take the time to learn from each other. We have created a non-judgemental, tolerant working environment where ideas are valued and discussed.

Individuality

At work and throughout life, it is crucial we respect people’s individuality. It would be a boring world if we were all the same. Everyone possesses unique skills, qualities, talents and gifts that should be embraced in an inclusive setting. We want our team members to ‘be themselves’, giving them the opportunity to showcase their personality and perspective.

We believe that these values form the anchor to our continued success, creating a company that people respect and want to be part of. Our values provide benefits to our team members, our customers, our suppliers, our stakeholders, the communities we work within and beyond. We’re proud to make these values part of our Santhem DNA.
