Companies function just like people

You cannot invent a company's values. Many go wrong here. Some companies define their values based on who they want to be. Not who they actually are. That's why there's a difference between what they say and what they do. We find this untrustworthy.

We believe that a company's values have to emerge. They have to be found. We found our values through a number of efforts - formal and informal - and have organised them into four groups. Each group corresponds to an area significant to people's welfare: care, recognition, humour and meaning. Areas that are not just essential for people to thrive but also for companies to grow.

We listen – because at Pressalit we respect other people and their opinions. We take pride in the recognition of our efforts, and believe that we find strength in diversity.

We give - and receive. Share knowledge and experience. Believe in committed people. In the interaction between the employee and the organisation. In a cooperation that is always ready to challenge the status quo.

We play – because without play there is no development. All great ideas initially seem absurd, said Einstein. That's why we allow room for thinking out of the box and for taking chances. We are daring, and we value humour and a love of life.

We act - purposefully. We are born innovative. Thrive on change. Know that we live from creating value for our customers - and our customers' customers. Through our actions, we constantly renew our reliability. We are focused. Recognise that we are measured on results (and not processes). We are always ready to improve what can be done better.
