The meaning of integrity
Here's what we feel about this core value
Honesty and integrity are second nature for us. We believe it’s vital to treat our clients and ourselves with decency and fairness. That’s why integrity is one of our core values. Our team reflect on how they bring integrity into their work.
Charlotte Stanyer, Project Support:
“I view integrity as being comprised of three key aspects: taking pride in your work, the ability to generate trust in others, and consistency.
“I believe I show integrity in the way that I take a huge amount of pride in my work, whether it be something for Entec Si Consulting or Solutions, or work for a client. My work ethic is built upon a great sense of enthusiasm and a passion for success. I am always looking for ways to improve the work, the process or my own knowledge and skillset. I ensure work is completed and presented to a high standard, consistently and despite any external factors.
“I also demonstrate integrity by fostering strong rapports with colleagues and clients through regular engagement and realistic expectation-setting, delivering with high quality work. I work autonomously and drive progression to ensure work is complete as expected and this strengthens others’ trust in me and my abilities.”
Sue Johnson Gregory, Principal Consultant:
“To me, integrity is bringing the best you can be, to make any initiative or change happen. It is having an innate sense of what a successful journey looks like – and pushing to go that extra mile to get there. It is admitting when you got it wrong, and it is being human. My amazing former colleague and friend, Zoe Eccleson, once said “We do the right thing”. I truly believe doing the right thing is the best we can do.”
Pete Britten, Project Manager:
- “Honesty: I’m always honest when things aren’t going well, and provide solutions rather than excuses
- Leadership: I always try and lead teams by example, rather the do what I say but not as I do
- Sympathetic: I think I am approachable as I am always sympathetic to people’s needs. I believe this is due to my integrity, but it also builds on it.
- Standing by quality: I will always prioritise quality, even if it means going out of my way to move timelines, change budgets etc. to ensure clients/users get the best possible product”
Sarah Frost, Resource Manager:
“This is one of my favourite quotes and one I shared with Peter, Eman and Dave during my presentation for the role of Resource Manager in December of last year (seems a lifetime ago!).
“Integrity is choosing courage over comfort; its choosing what is right over what is fun, fast, or easy, and choosing to practice our values rather than simply professing them” Brene Brown
“This is something I stand by, live by, each and every day. For me integrity is about being true to you, and who you are. Core values and beliefs are so important, but also being authentic. I am the same at work and home, I am always striving to me the best version of me, all of the time.”
Jack Considine, Business Analyst:
“Even before joining, integrity was hard to say in words, but after a year at Entec it is clear that we all do the right thing at the right time, which describes this value perfectly.
“Whether internally or for our clients, I feel each member of the Entec family conducts themselves with integrity and it reflects not just in our delivery but most importantly in our relationships.
“Without integrity, we may be able to deliver, but we won’t be able to build lasting relationships, which I feel is at the core of this firm.”
Matt Garrett, Programme Manager:
“As much as possible I am open and honest with our clients. I try to keep them in the loop so they are always informed of any changes and rarely get surprised by project change or issues. It isn’t always my favourite thing to do but I have never been afraid to have the difficult conversation and put my cards on the table to discuss any issues that might arise.”
