To continually raise the bar to a higher standard. To be measured in the industry and by our competitors as the benchmark for excellence. To constantly improve in every aspect of our business. To be disciplined and do things well day in and day out. To be viewed nothing less than a premier, world class, top flight drilling company.
Going to great lengths to make our clients satisfied and support our co-workers. It is all about doing just a little bit more than we think we are capable of doing.
Personal satisfaction. We feel and are part of something great and something special. Something that shows in our attitude and shows in our work. It is essential working to achieve excellence.
Holding ourselves accountable for our actions. To make well informed decisions. To plan ahead and to have a back-up plan. To act and work with minimum guidance or supervision. To do what we say we are going to do when we say we are going to do it.
To go about our work treating people the way we want to be treated. We should be courteous, polite, professional, thoughtful, and seek to understand the opinions and actions of those who we work with on a daily basis. In a company that works in several countries in different languages, we will strive to be aware of social, ethical and ethnic backgrounds.
This value is the foundation for our existence. Although it may seem very difficult, we absolutely have to approach things from a truthful and straight forward perspective. Sometimes mistakes occur or things happen that seem to be out of our control. We need to realize our mistakes and to go about correcting things in the most honest and responsible manner possible. This is to gain and maintain credibility in our business.
To build a reputation with our clients and employees and vendors that we are believable and trustworthy. If we give you our word, or make a promise, it is one that you know we will do everything within our power to make sure it happens.
