The people of Sysmex, their know-how, creativity and engagement, are our company’s most valuable resource. Excellent collaboration is a way to tap into this resource and is therefore a key driver for our future success. Leadership is one important enabler of collaboration as leadership provides the framework for action for all members of the organisation.
As a consequence, we at Sysmex developed Collaboration & Leadership Principles for our EMEA region – principles that create a vision of how we can stay successful and act even stronger together to master the challenges of today and tomorrow.
Our principles have been developed by Sysmex employees for Sysmex employees. The principles represent our shared ambition for successful collaboration and leadership at Sysmex. By describing values, motives, beliefs as well as behaviour they offer a possibility of identification with what we believe is important to us.
Our Collaboration & Leadership Principles address the way in which we deal with one another on all levels of our organisation. They do not contain detailed instructions for our actions, but instead serve as guidance by describing clearly what we can expect from each other. By no means they are a one-way street – they are about what we should give and what we should get.
The principles are not just words for us. All people working for Sysmex in EMEA take them seriously and are fully committed to them. Become a Sysmex employee yourself and recognise how we act together to make our Collaboration & Leadership Principles come alive!
