Our Ethos

about us img
  • We understand that "Culture eats strategy for breakfast”, a phrase originated by Peter Drucker and made famous by Mark Fields, President at Ford. Any company disconnecting the two are putting their success at risk.

Azon's assets:

  • The main assets of our business, our people, walk out the front door of our offices every day. People are the core value of our business and they need to be looked after. 'Looking after' can be achieved in a number of ways. As well as financial rewards and a positive, healthy, and happy, work environment, it also transcends into the work ethos within our business.

Our obligation:

  • We want ambitious people to be challenged and to be given the autonomy to make a difference.  Of course, with responsibility comes accountability but good people want to be held accountable. We are fortunate that a significant number of our team members left very good companies to come and join us and we have a collective obligation to build our business together into something special.

Who works well with us:

  • People who are naturally competitive work well in our environment but the team ethos must always prevail. We recognise that hard work beats talent if talent doesn't work hard.
