“Gii Core Values were developed in 2010 to help set expectations for current and future team members. At that time we recognized the importance of clearly outlining the framework of our culture to encourage growth and satisfaction within the organization. I’m proud to say that the vision and passion reflected in our values has not wavered since their inception. These core values are just as relevant today as they were 13 years ago, and I would like to think that they are at least partially responsible for attracting and motivating our incredibly talented team.”
– Stephen Bates, Founder & CEO
EMBRACE AND DRIVE CHANGE
Perhaps the most important of our core values, and the one that makes us unique, is that we truly value and encourage fun and laughter. The nature of office work means we spend time away from our friends and family each week. As such, when we are in the office, we strive to create an environment of fun, where we can laugh at ourselves and with each other. We hire phenomenally talented and great people so finding fun and humor in our daily work is not a difficult task.
PURSUE GROWTH AND LEARNING
DO MORE WITH LESS:
THE ULTIMATE IN EFFICIENCY
While we may be casual in our interaction with each other, we are focused and serious about the operations of our business. We believe in hard work and putting in the extra effort to get things done. We believe in operational excellence and realize that there is always room for improvement in everything we do. To stay ahead of our competition, we need to continuously innovate and make incremental improvements to our operations, always striving to make ourselves more efficient.
COMMUNICATION IS KING:
Be Thoughtful, Thorough, Complete and Effective!
We want everyone to go the extra mile in encouraging thorough, complete, and effective communication. We operate as a “flat” organization where every employee is accessible, ensuring that every communication that you write or speak is honest, complete, understandable, direct, and always kind. Further underlining the importance of concise communication is that English is often a 2nd/3rd, or even 4th language to many of our partners in China, Malaysia, Thailand, etc. We value and respect our partners and ensuring clear communication across language barriers is of primary importance.
BUILD A POSITIVE TEAM
The best team members have a positive influence on one another and everyone they encounter. They strive to eliminate any kind of cynicism or unnecessary negative interactions. We strive to create harmony, both with each other internally, as well as with our customers and partners. We take initiative when we notice issues so that the team and the company can succeed. The best team members take ownership of issues and collaborate with other team members whenever a challenge may arise.
