At Black Star Energy, we practice the following values
- Excellence: We take responsibility for making things great; we also take responsibility and fix things immediately with anyone who is impacted if anything is less than great.
- Learning: We strive to always be learning as an organization and as individuals. We are not afraid to fail. We are afraid not to learn.
- Teamwork: we value our team and we value each other. We have each other’s back. We communicate when something is working well and on track, we over-communicate when something is not working well or on track.
- Honor: We honor the communities in which we work. We respect our clients, we respect our stake holders. We recognize that we are working across multiple cultures and that we try to understand each other’s perspective – knowing that it is our differences that make us the best. We may not always agree with each other, our customers, our stake holders, but at the core of every interaction must be respected. There is no excuse for ever violating this.
