Sage Credo--Our Code for Good Work

  1. 1. Sage Credo Our Code for Good Work
  2. 2. Our Mission To make the world more sustainable by creating new value for used technology through innovation and redesign for longer life. We will achieve our mission by focusing on who we work with, and how we work together.
  3. 3. Who We’re Working For, in order of Importance: • The Planet • Customers • Colleagues • Our communities • Suppliers • Our shareholders First, Who We’re Working For: (in this order) • The Planet • Customers • Colleagues • Our communities • Suppliers • Our shareholders
  4. 4. Who We Are: We are building a diverse global team of top performers who demonstrate: • Creativity and initiative; • Commitment to our mission, and; • Personal accountability for business results.
  5. 5. Everyone a Master Every team member, and every assignment, must be strategic to our mission. You must develop mastery of your domain to ensure: • All our work adds value to our stakeholders; • Our business runs efficiently and delivers quality results; • We are continuously improving.
  6. 6. The Skill of Doing Our vision to change the world depends on each team member’s mastery of their domain, their creativity, and their personal accountability for results. But there can be no accountability for results without execution—the essential discipline everyone must learn and practice. Vision without execution is hallucination. --Thomas A. Edison
  7. 7. Transparency + Metrics Execution and personal accountability for business results is supported by metrics and transparency. We measure relentlessly and share the data. You must be comfortable being known by your accomplishments. Metrics are the tools we use to build upon the foundation of our mission.
  8. 8. Innovation Innovation is our strategy for adding value and growing. We depend on your creativity to make new good things happen. You will thrive here if you are comfortable: • Boldly sharing ideas that might sound stupid at first; • Being open to others’ ideas; • Failing fast and small; • Adjusting and persisting; • Taking personal accountability for results; • Spreading the credit around when a good thing comes together.

  9. 9. Respect comes first. Every door is open. Everyone is available to anyone in the company. Open, honest, clear and direct communication with one another is a source of our strategic advantage. Access and Communication
  10. 10. All Bosses Are Stupid It’s true, eventually--sorry. We rely on you to know what’s best in your domain—to speak up, and to fight for our stakeholders’ interests. You must be comfortable “managing up” with our leaders, because YOU are personally accountable for business results. Open, honest, clear and direct communication with our leaders is another source of strategic advantage.
  11. 11. Our Policies Are Simple: • Use good judgment. • Act with integrity. • Keep your promises (or make it right in advance). • Respect everyone. • Serve the greater good – Team > Self – Company > Team – Customer > Company – Mission > Customer
  12. 12. We don’t have a policy for that: Everyone must be master of their domains, and be personally accountable for business results. We therefore don’t have specific policies for: • The hours you work • Where you work • Who you work with • The vacation(s) you take • How to best protect the interests of the Stakeholders. We expect you to always use good judgment. If you find this kind of personal accountability and freedom empowering, you belong here.
  13. 13. Compensation If your primary motivation is money, you don’t belong here. That said, our best people will be top-tier earners relative to the market for their skills, experience, and positions. Every team member will share in the success of our business.
  14. 14. Work-Life Balance Work+Life. It’s not either/or. We believe that both should be enjoyable and fulfilling. Fulfillment at work requires a commitment to our mission and achieving results. We appreciate that this requires the support of others in your life. We know meeting your life commitments requires our support, including soccer games, anniversary dinners, and sick kids. We want you to be accountable for personal results, too.
  15. 15. Sharpening the Saw Where do you want to be in five years? This is not a hypothetical question. Everyone is expected to grow continuously— professionally and personally. And our leaders are responsible for helping you define and achieve your goals.
  16. 16. People who are creative, committed, accountable. (We already covered that.) People who are adaptable, who are comfortable with change; Open people; Positive people. We don’t think you can be happy in life--or be a great employee--if you don’t love your job. Who will love it here?
