Ixonos State of Mind
Our values: learning, responsibility, productivity, openness
Our values stand for what we want to commit ourselves to, and what kind of work community we have as our target. The values created together with our personnel also provide guidelines for corporate development, taking the interests and needs of personnel, customers and owners into account as equally as possible. Our values are the cornerstones of our business, and they steer our operations even at times when practical instructions are temporarily lacking due to rapidly changing circumstances.
All our values are equally important, but we see learning, responsibility and profitability as a proactive circle of development. Our continuous efforts to learn and to take on responsibility support productivity aims, which in turn enhances the preconditions for development. Openness is considered to be a fundamental value guiding all operations. It provides a framework and guidelines for our internal cooperation and interaction with customers and other stakeholders.
We make efforts to continuously develop our skills, organization and mode ofoperation in order to become increasingly efficient in offering the right solutions to meet our customers’ changing needs. We appreciate continuous learning, initiative, willingness to change and ability to anticipate changes.
We value reliable, cooperative and responsible people. In all our duties, we aim to have a responsible attitude to customers and colleagues, ensuring that everyone’s contribution helps to meet customer requirements and achieve the company’s own goals in the best possible way.
We want to be productive in our work, thus creating the preconditions for corporate profitability and continued operations and for success in meeting the expectations of our various stakeholders. We welcome and support efforts to reach highest possible quality and performance.
We value and respect one another as equal partners, accepting individual differences as an important asset and a source of new ideas. We aim at openness, both in internal relations and in interaction with customers and other stakeholders.
Global growth requires continuous development of the quality management system
Ixonos globally adheres to an EN ISO 9001:2008 compliant quality management system that has been certified for the company’s operations in Finland. The system is intended to ensure that our service operations and internal processes conform to consistent quality standards in all our countries of operation.
We follow a set of common operating practices based on agile development methods adapted to our operations. These practices are continuously developed according to industry-established methods and tools as well as experiences we gain from customer projects. By using flexible practices, we aim to ensure the performance of customized solutions, the accuracy of schedules and cost estimates and the continuity of our services, also under extraordinary circumstances.
In 2010, Ixonos joined Excellence Finland as a key corporate member to receive up-to-date information and new perspectives on the field of quality management. Excellence Finland chairs networking activities that provide opportunities to take advantage of novel methods and tools.
