It’s really the people that make Vertechs the kind of company it is. We hire people who are smart and determined, and we favor ability over experience. Accountability, Trust, Innovation and Integrity are the foundation for all our achievements. Our culture has enabled us to build one of the strongest and most recognizable brands in oil & gas industry.
Any employee who sees opportunities to improve the way we do things is encouraged to speak up, even if these opportunities are outside his/her area of responsibility. The employee has a personal stake in the success of Vertechs so is expected to make suggestions and share ideas (and will be encouraged to follow up the suggestions and ideas with supporting action to help realize the benefits). At Vertechs, we encourage honest dialogue and foster accountability by building in processes that become part of the culture.
The only way to make a person trustworthy is to trust him/her. Trust is one of the most essential elements to our ability to deliver extraordinary results in an enduring way. Trust leads to high performance because it enables Vertechs to work as it should. All employees are expected to tell the truth (even when that is difficult) and not just what they think people want hear. Showing support and understanding for colleagues, even when they make mistakes, goes a long way in building trust in the workplace.
Innovation comes from creating a work environment where people’s ideas can connect. Communication of ideas is what we encourage everyone to do in his/her daily work at Vertechs. We embrace adopting first-principles thinking to solve industry challenges. We also understand that any new idea will not be accepted at first. It takes repeated attempts, endless demonstrations, monotonous rehearsals before innovation can be validated and accepted. This requires courageous patience. Innovation is an element in Vertechs culture and we believe that the riskiest thing we can do is to settle for maintaining the status quo.
Integrity is the key element in all our business decision-making, interacting with colleagues, and serving customers or clients. We want everyone around us to act with integrity. Employees are expected to have the courage to say “No”, to face the truth, and to do the right thing. Integrity is the cornerstone of all success in the growth of Vertechs.
