In the last few months, we have grown ten-fold and have developed greatly on all levels – our team, our customers, and our product. It is high time to capture these in our new Company Values. Developing the values was an intensive process with many valuable ideas and diverse perspectives – which we would not want to miss. 😊
It was particularly important to us that we formulated our values clearly and precisely. We wanted to showcase memorable values that everyone remembers quickly, values with which one identifies as an individual, a team and all together as a company, and values which are reflected in our daily actions.
For us, values are a reflection of our daily culture. They are the cornerstones of our daily interactions and inform all actions. We are convinced that a joint commitment and understanding of our values has a positive influence on our success, builds up our team spirit and promotes personal development.
At the beginning of the value creation process, we asked ourselves the questions:
It was important to us to involve all employees in the process. We used our off-site company event in Tuscany as a kick-off and got our first thoughts and ideas.
The result: A colorful patchwork carpet that showed how diverse we are and yet, share common ground that inspires us. In several subsequent virtual workshops, the various ideas of the team were summarized and brought to the point. And voilà, we have found the four values that capture the essence of TradeLink:
We’re on a crazy ambitious path to building the world’s supply chain collaboration layer and we embrace the thrill of every new challenge along the way. We know that you value personal growth as highly as we do and that - like us - you want to have the greatest imaginable impact on this world. So, if you’re also aiming and pushing for the stars, we’ll invest in you to get there and celebrate each success with you along the way.
We’re creating a world of frictionless collaboration and that starts in our team. Working together, we act with empathy, ensure everybody feels heard and full-heartedly get behind a decision once it's made. Above all else, we trust each other. So, we share information openly, broadly and deliberately – transparency always wins. We invest in helpful and timely feedback delivered with empathy, review decisions together and embrace failures openly as valuable learning opportunities.
We’re in the business of making life easier for real people: our users. We are doing something truly ground-breaking – building the first end-to-end supply chain collaboration platform – and the only way to get there is by being deeply user obsessed: never assuming, honestly curious and always in search of their Why. We appreciate that our users put a lot of trust in us for their daily decision making, so we pay this back by seeing the world through their eyes and always putting them first.
Logistics and supply chains are inherently global and so are we. TradeLinkers are spread across more than 30 cities around the world, sharing a single remote-first work environment and sense of belonging with a close collaborative culture driven by impact. Beyond the limitations of borders, we are openly welcoming the greatest characters from all origins, orientations and identities to build a truly impactful team – second to none – and make the world a more equitable place along the way.
