Rooted in our culture – Our WISE approach
It was Henry Ford who said, “Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”
Natec’s Core Values are: Working Together with Trust, Innovation & Transparent Information, Striving for Excellence and Engaging with Respect and an Open Mind. Organisations that consistently achieve success are often supported by high-performance cultures. Within that culture runs the smooth operation of day to day activities. It is this distinction that differentiates us from our competitors. At Natec Medical we take pride in knowing that these values are ingrained within us.
Natec’s key asset will remain its people. The organisation is committed to having regular appraisal conversations with employees, as it is crucial to align individual performance with business objectives. Natec supports and implements the idea of having a people-focused culture and an environment which will give its employees the opportunity for growth and evolution.
WISE Performance Dialogue Process
Conventionally a lot of organisations are accustomed to the typical annual appraisal process, at Natec we believe in a more proactive approach; replacing annual reviews with an ongoing performance dialogue. It’s always important to check up and review personal and professional targets throughout the year. We encourage this initiative as this helps prevent unpleasant surprises, addresses uncertainty early, and provides opportunities for continuous improvement.
In today’s fast paced world of business, it’s more important than ever to maintain a meaningful, two-way dialogue with employees, not only for the sake of employee retainment, but to also continuously identify areas of self-development & growth. One of the key enablers for achieving employee engagement is to ensure that employees are able to express themselves, to feel empowered and to share their opinions.
“You can’t manage what you can’t measure” cited by Peter Drucker, is a key component in any organisation. Within the Natec environment, every department and its members are encouraged to set SMARTE (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant Timely and Ecological) objectives.
Our Dialogue Process and culture creates a nurturing environment that has been setup to deliver great improvements to the entire team’s performance and productivity. An added benefit: It improves employee engagement and drives satisfaction. We strongly believe in the TEAM mentality (Together Everyone Achieves More) We at Natec Medical strive in ensuring our people are put first and will all be contributing to the mission of saving lives daily. We value the contribution of our employees and cultivating a positive and having an agile working environment where everyone is involved, makes a huge difference.
