From external partners to ACTIVE’s executives, all employees share the same culture, a common system of values. Corporate culture stems from leading executives and is the one that shapes employee behavior and attitudes, both inside and outside the company, which therefore influences the high level of the provided service. Corporate culture is reflected in the contact of staff with its customers. Its key ingredient is respect not only to the needs but also to the demands of the client and it is expressed through courtesy, willingness, consistency, immediacy and methodicality. ACTIVE's primary goal is to commit itself to continuously improving its processes and responding to customer requests.
An equally important part is the passion for innovation, progress and development, as well as constant alertness in the field of IT. These values, which make up the corporate culture, not only ensure the coherence of the business, but also add value. A value that leads every step one step further. In a nutshell, ACTIVE's corporate policy is based on three pillars: credibility in the solutions it offers, respect for customer requirements and development in relation to technological developments.
ACTIVE's people, inspired by the philosophy of the company, work creatively, efficiently and passionately for innovation, maintaining a high level of service, which is a significant comparative advantage over competition. ACTIVE is made up of a group of 91 people, each of whom represents an important and distinct chapter for the company. On the one hand, they are the "mirror" of ACTIVE and on the other hand why it is the "key" for its further development. The company promotes team spirit as its people work with solidarity and strongly developed the sense of fellowship, which facilitates working daily routine.
On the other hand, the firm's commitment is to invest in its people through continuous training and specialization in new technologies. Besides, the course of the company up to date has proved in the most practical way that the combination of dedication, specialization and efficiency is the most successful recipe for success.
