To ensure a common understanding of our values, we have developed guideline about how employees and managers work together at KEIM.
In our mission statement, several motifs stand for the ideal of successful cooperation; they are understood as a self-commitment for all KEIM employees worldwide. All motifs are interconnected and mutually dependent.
Some of our guiding principles of our cooperation are:
Clarity translates our corporate visions and goals into clear responsibilities and tasks for individuals or groups with clear rules, rights and duties. This requires results-oriented leadership as well as mutual feedback.
Openness means cultivating mutual and trusting communication, accepting innovations and changes and promoting internal entrepreneurship by granting room for manoeuvre. Openness also includes the goal-oriented further development of our employees and, last but not least, an open ear for their concerns and needs.
Reliability is demonstrated by binding compliance with agreements and rules as well as immediate feedback in the event of deviations. Reliability creates mutual trust.
Fairness means treating equal things equally and unequal things differently, i.e. taking into account the individual situation of an employee while weighing up the interests of the company, the group and the individual and making decisions transparent to those affected. Fairness also means considering the performance of employees in comparison with the company's goals in order to avoid permanent over- or under-demand.
