- We understand that honest, ethical, and transparent conduct is vital to our success and reputation. Every employee plays an essential part in complying with local and national laws, rules and regulations. We uphold a high standard of corporate and business integrity across all of our activities.
We believe that our hardworking team of employees is our greatest asset.
Our culture helps our team to meet our values in everything they do, while also encouraging everyone at Innospec to drive the company forward. While it can be difficult to tangibly demonstrate in our day-to-day activities, we endorse a culture where people are rewarded and recognized for the performance they give to the company.
We have introduced processes to demonstrate this. All employees, regardless of their role and where they are based, participate in an annual bonus scheme, rewarding them based on a combination of company and individual performance. Through this unified approach to rewarding performance, we can all share in the company’s success.
At Innospec, we encourage our people to aspire to a culture that is:
We know what is expected of us and take responsibility for our own workload. We assume responsibility for making decisions and are flexible in our dealings with people. We take additional responsibility to meet customer needs and enhance performance.
We take pride in being good at what we do and actively seek to enhance our knowledge and skills to help improve performance. We use our expertise co-operatively to meet customer needs and enhance our performance. We respect each other and listen carefully to understand others’ points of view.
As an organization, we are open and transparent. We encourage and welcome feedback and we support people to deal with any unwelcome messages.
Our people are forward thinking and inspired. We enjoy challenges and encourage new ideas. We seek continual improvement and care about treating people well through periods of change.
We are performance driven, enthusiastic and quick to respond. We set clear targets and objectives and take satisfaction in achieving them. We want to be part of a successful team and business and we make decisions quickly and implement them.
