Our leadership principles

The leadership principles developed by thyssenkrupp Elevator UK define the values that inform all our actions and decisions.

These principles reflect our fundamental attitude and the way we work together, day after day.

Take responsibility

  • Our goal is to be available to our employees and make sure they stay healthy.
  • We want our actions to provide a good example, and we stand behind our employees' decisions.
  • We want to admit our mistakes openly and honestly – and learn from them.

Make decisions

  • We resolve to make clear, understandable, efficient decisions – taking our employees into account – and to communicate these decisions quickly.
  • We want to encourage everyone to make decisions.

Walk the talk

  • "Say what you mean and mean what you say!"
  • That's what we want to live up to.

Recognition and appreciation

  • We respect the uniqueness of each of our employees and want to take the time to be available to them..
  • We use praise in an honest way.

Allow freedom

  • We want to trust our employees, giving them the space and time for independent, responsible work so that they can develop further.
  • "Lateral thinking" and "visions" are particularly important to us.

Share successes

  • Open communication about successes – and failures – is important to us, so we will work through failures together and celebrate successes together.
  • Because success is one of the few things that increase when they are shared.
