While this will look a little different for each individual company, the essence remains the same in that you need engaged employees, and a strong set of values that are not only embraced by all staff, but are also actively on display from the people at the top.
As a co-founder of Zenith, I have personally looked to ensure that a key part of our company is the development of open and rewarding relationships, placing an emphasis on honesty and respect.
It is from this base that we can genuinely strive to make a difference, not only within the lives of our employees, but also in the world around us.
Zenith Energy has grown to become one of Australia’s leading independent power producers and we continue to look for ways in which we can do better. It’s one of the key reasons why we’re embarking on the journey to achieve Net Zero by 2035.
However, such an ambitious goal cannot be achieved without the support and commitment of the entire team, from the most junior of roles, right up to upper management.
Having the right set of values in place acts as a guide for the company’s strategic direction, business practices and decision making.
Safety: For the people and the environment. It’s a commitment to protecting the safety, health and wellbeing of our team, our contractors, our customers and the environment in which we operate.
Performance: Delivering sustainable energy solutions. Dedicated to providing safe, reliable and sustainable solutions with real benefits to our customers and our shareholders.
Accountability: Taking ownership. Valuing the ability of our people and our organisation to work diligently and honour our commitments, responsibly and with integrity.
Reliability: Consistency in the supply of energy. Inspiring confidence in our business model, our products and further enhancing our reputation in the market.
Knowledge: Innovative solutions and people. A commitment to continuous technical development and innovation of our products, services and our team.
We draw upon these values to deliver a can-do attitude, embracing challenges in the renewable energy and sustainability space, and becoming part of the solution.
Zenith is actively taking steps to decarbonise both our future and legacy clients, not only because our people believe we should, but because they believe we have the ability to create change.
An organisation is not a single person, but rather it is a patchwork of people, each bringing their unique set of circumstances and experiences to the table.
We at Zenith embrace that patchwork, and use it to empower the company in reaching key milestones on the journey to Net Zero.
