Find out what we feel about this key value
Our company values are critical to everything we do. One of these is collaboration. It’s a behaviour that’s at the core of our blended team approach, whether that’s working with clients, partners and associates or collaborating together.
Eman Al-Hillawi, Principal Consultant:
“Collaboration is also about how we work with our associates and partners to make the business tick. Associates, including Ammba, Simon Barnard, Jayne Bacon, Mark Baxter and others have helped us deliver on so many different projects and programmes where we needed a blend of skills that are outside of our organisation. Furthermore, our partners such as MDP, Schofield & Associates, Pearl Comms, Jude Jennison, Alison Delaney, Clive Griffiths, Dean Williams, and others offer a level of support and challenge that keeps us on our toes and moves us forward as a growing and developing as an organisation. In our collaborative approach to partnerships and associates, we truly live and breathe our blended team approach.
Dave Fisher, Business Support Manager:
“It has been truly fantastic to see how colleagues across the company have demonstrated the Entec Si core value of collaboration during the Coronavirus pandemic. As Business Support Manager, focusing on internal operations within the company, everyone has ‘stepped up’ and worked together on key priorities. Whether it was new systems, processes, internal projects – whatever has been needed, colleagues have made themselves readily available and have worked together positively, contributing their own individual skills, knowledge and strengths. The positive impact for the company and my own work has been enormous.”
Tim Powlson, Senior Business Consultant:
“Within the Entec team, we collaborated extensively on creating the TOM slides. A group inputted thinking and ideas, a smaller group pulled together the initial model, then a slightly different group working up the communication pack. This then allowed another level of understanding and review before releasing it to the wider team for the whole company feedback and collaboration (which is now underway).
“With our clients I have been collaborating with Heart of England Mencap Exec team. We have supported them to build and communicate their strategic thinking ready to share with their Senior Leadership Team while also collaborating with their IT and operational staff to build a more detailed picture of their technical landscape and challenges.
“Collaboration may be enabled by technology but it is actually a collection of behaviours driven by a belief that we are greater than the sum of our parts. Whilst there may be individuals with great skills and ideas, we should recognise that, as a group with patience, the outcome is nearly always improved when worked on together.“
