We approach obstacles as opportunities and employ curiosity to push the boundaries of our ideas and inventions. But with this freedom comes responsibility in making the right decision, even under pressure.
Healthy risk taking
We believe that success is not always linear. An essential part of growth is giving each other the freedom to take healthy risks. Mistakes will be made, and when they are, we have a responsibility to identify the mistake and find a solution. We will never compromise our values or the brand and reputation of Convercent by taking a risk that could harm our business or that of our customers.
How this shows up
Doing what we’ve always done won’t get us to where we want to be. Think differently. Act with the values and integrity in mind, and if your idea doesn’t work, let’s work together to learn from the experience.
We believe that competition breeds excellence and is in the best interest of our customers. We compete based on the quality of our technology and services, innovation, and price, and we don’t discuss competitively sensitive topics with our competitors. When you find yourself in a similar situation, the best course of action is to immediately end the conversation and seek help by contacting Legal or Ethics & Compliance.
Conflicts of interest
Situations may arise in which a teammate’s personal interests may overlap or compete with Convercent’s interests. A conflict, or the perception of a conflict, comes in many forms: personal relationships, outside business interests, outside activities, and gifts, travel and entertainment. See our conflict of interest policy.
We approach business relationships with fellow teammates, customers, suppliers, contractors and consultants on the basis of fairness and objectivity. And while decisions should be made in the best interest of Convercent, sometimes it’s difficult to maintain objectivity when determining if a situation is a conflict. As soon as you find yourself in any of the following situations, follow the Conflict of Interest Disclosure process so that we can work together to put the right guardrails in place:
- An outside personal relationship with someone currently doing or seeking to do business with Convercent or a direct competitor
- An immediate relative or teammates in a romantic relationship
