A Culture of Success
It takes a special sort of person to be part of the Waiotahi team. You need to be tough yet sensitive, down to earth and professional, strong but gentle, a joker that knows when to be serious.
Our challenge is to not ‘just do it’, but to take it to the next level and ‘own it’.
To ‘own it’ is to embrace responsibility, show leadership and take initiative. It’s also about showing respect for gear and treating it like it’s your own. Whether taking charge of safety or simply keeping equipment clean – there is always something we can do to contribute more to the team.
At Waiotahi, we don’t believe in saying ‘no’.
To live up to this promise, each and every one of us must think like a problem solver – erasing the word ‘can’t’ from our minds.
We believe there is always a way to overcome challenges and we won’t rest until we’ve found the way.
That’s why we work for Waiotahi.
At Waiotahi, we all speak up.
Clear communication is the cornerstone of Waiotahi relationships. Whether customers or team mates, we treat everyone as partners working towards the same goal.
We speak up within the team by passing on our knowledge and experience to others without waiting to be asked, and by speaking openly and honestly at every opportunity.
When it’s time to refocus, we bring it in – then we own it.
Like all great teams, we know that it’s the people around us that allow us to achieve greatness, and our job is to constantly bring out the best in each other.
Our teammates will get stuck every now and again. When they do, it’s time to ‘Bring it in’. Let them know we’ve got their back and work out the problem together.
