Values

At Hi-Tech we believe that values are the core of an organization and also the people associated with the organization. We at Hi-Tech believe that values are responsible for shaping the work culture in the organization. We strongly believe in values and the work culture it evolves. To communicate our organization values with the team at Hi-Tech we have listed some of the important values.

• Integrity & honesty.
• Healthy competition.
• High performance & continuously upgrading knowledge
• Customer satisfaction (internal & external).

Values are those qualities which cannot be taught but it has to be inculcated. We at Hi-Tech know that culture and values begin at home, the values and culture vary from person to person depending on their upbringing and surrounding society in which they have been raised. In Hi-Tech we have people from different cultures and with that they have different values they bring in the organization. We at Hi-Tech are committed to raise the values of each and every individual to achieve world class operational levels.

To help understand the values better we have explained and simplified values in to “good practices & bad practices”. This will help us to judge our priority and commitment to the values of the organization in our day to day, professional and personal lives. Lotus grows in the muck, this classic example teaches us that though a person may come from a weak background but it is possible for us to turn him around if each one of us, at every level takes up the obligation to align with these values & practice them with sincerity and consistency.

Aligning with these values will mean to demonstrate the good practices to ourselves and encouraging these practices in others. It also requires actively discouraging and not being a silent spectator to the bad practices in ourselves and others. We look forward to Hi-Tech being a value driven company that we can all be proud off.
