What we stand for.
Rapid technological change is shaping our world more than ever. But especially in these times, our company is sustained not only by good products, turnkey systems, and innovative solutions, but above all by people and values. 3,800 people and five core brand values, to be precise.
"Initially, we asked ourselves why we actually needed our own corporate values. Today we know. It is the spirit of our company founder Manfred Swarovski that we have anchored in our company."
Markus M. / SWARCO Group Brand Manager
Our values of agility, reliability & trust, passion, innovation, and cooperation are important pillars of our brand. Our conduct and objectives are based on them. And so our shared values and goals and the momentum they generate are the engine that drives us towards the next big idea for the mobility of today and tomorrow.
What then does agility mean in everyday work?
How do we practice agility?
How do we perceive agility?
Whether we act flexibly and think outside the box are issues that are addressed in performance reviews, for example.
And that really takes us further.
How firmly this company value is already anchored and what we mean by it is reflected in the following statements from our colleagues.
"In my many years at SWARCO in America, I have always appreciated the cooperation between team members when it came to adjustments in strategy or technical innovations, for example. Our team is ready to change and take on new tasks together. Our clients benefit from this 'all hands on deck' attitude when it comes to mastering new challenges quickly."
Software Engineering Manager, Vista/California
"Agility and individual responsibility are important aspects of personal work attitudes. Independent work and personal responsibility are important to me. If you are not up to the task, a whole team can be put at risk or a client project can go awry. Even the smallest customer problem is important to us, we always listen very carefully. We act swiftly, responsibly, and we do our homework. We pass on information and keep our customers informed."
Controller Product Manager, USA
