Flexibility and Agility: We believe in serving clients and partners according to their needs and timelines. We set service standards and hold ourselves accountable to these goals. We identify with the entrepreneurs we work with.
Risk-taking: We are in the "new ideas" business. We value creativity and believe in lifelong learning. We accept the risks associated with furthering development of innovative ideas and people.
Accountability: We are accountable for our individual and collective decisions and actions as they impact our relationships and the performance of the organization.
Positive Work Environment: We support diversity and believe that OCE functions best when staff are like-minded – not necessarily alike. And, we support programs that facilitate work-life balance.
OCE works to foster a positive environment that allows staff to excel. A supportive environment where mutual respect is paramount and where individuals have the tools and resources to enhance and develop their careers. Maintaining a healthy work-life balance is key to our shared success. In developing our staff and working environment, OCE is able to sustainably build on its success and consistently meet and exceed established targets and objectives. After all, a healthy workplace is fundamental to well-being and the high energy and creativity that drive innovation.
