Our Values

We are all part of a team, and each one of us has a contribution to make. We have faith in one another and can depend on each other.
This makes us strong and confident, and at the same time gives us the assurance we need to keep asking questions.

Our six core values:


Agreement on our goals



Strength through mutual trust


Our values have developed from this basic principle. In our opinion values make no sense if we don’t live by them. This is a challenge which we are happy to face up to every day!
