Our guiding principles
We are a team. We help each other.
We rethink, we think ahead – we take a broad view and think outside the box.
Our guiding principles help us create a foundation of trust among all staff. To achieve this, we – as a team – have gone to great depths to figure out just what exactly it is that makes LMIS AG special. The result is our key guiding principles, which we identify with, and which show that every single team member contributes to our shared success.
Our passion and performance shine through – each and every day. Rather than reading from a script, I adapt my performance to the situation at hand and to the specific needs of our customers.
We have a mission: to ensure that our products and services enhance our customers’ business success and performance. I appreciate the freedom and modern working tools that allow me to organize my work independently and flexibly.
We promote open, transparent communication across all departments, and raise issues constructively within the team and with our customers at an early stage. I handle all operations and customer information in strict confidence.
We ensure the high quality of our work by regularly participating in training. Our clients recognize and appreciate our professional expertise. I work with precision and I am attentive to the little things. Because every detail plays an important part in our overall performance.
Teamwork is a fundamental, integral part of any success.
For cooperation to succeed, specialists need to be formed into an agile team and accommodate each other’s different working styles. Only if each member of the team has a particular role to play can the team successfully tackle demanding challenges together, with every member developing their full potential. For this reason, when putting together our teams, we don’t just consider expertise and performance, but also ensure that the chemistry is right. The outcome: highly motivated teams with the freedom required for individual growth, and that focus on personal and professional development. To ensure the long-term success of our teams, we support continuous professional development as well as external and internal knowledge transfer among staff. Maintaining our certifications from our suppliers consistently reaffirms our IT experts’ skills.
