Our Company Culture
The founders of our enterprise recognised a void in the construction estimating software industry, and sought to turn this absence into a business. Products available on the market at that time lacked innovation and could even be seen as slightly counter-intuitive. Our company was established to deliver on one imperative – linking drawings and estimates together. This successful innovation led to many more over the course of our business history.
Murray Freeman: RIB CEO, APAC Region.
“To grow your company externally, you first have to grow and nurture it internally. From day one, we have had a set of core values which are accepted, believed and ingrained in each and every employee. Having everyone aligned with the values, we are able to actualise our mission as a single unit.”
RIB Core Values
- Managed by Objectives
- Results Oriented
- Personal & Professional Development
Here at RIB, our Core Values are the building blocks upon which our success is built. They provide guidance on what matters most, from daily operation through to long-term objectives. In a world that is continually changing, our values have not and will not differ.
Continual Innovation is a necessity to survive and to thrive in the tech space. However, innovation cannot be mandated or bolted on; it must be woven into the fabric of everything that RIB seeks to achieve. Our company endorses and utilises a Manage by Objectives (MBO) approach, where goals are jointly developed and employees are entrusted to determine and traverse their own path to achieve them. This Results-Oriented attitude has served our enterprise well across its history.
While individual innovation and objective achievement is crucial in adding value for a business, teamwork multiplies the effectiveness of the individual’s work. Teamwork, or synergy, delivers enhanced performance far beyond the sheer sum of its members’ single contribution. Regular team meetings, be they formal, informal or ad hoc, allows teams to recognise and appreciate what others are doing and helps to remove roadblocks and exploit opportunities. At the conclusion of each quarter, we review major developments and objective results to guide the future path of our business. This transparent approach increases the accountability that one assigns themselves in relation to their team and the business as a whole.
RIB encourages all team members to explore their Entrepreneurialism; to pursue new ideas and opportunities without fear of failure. We also value Intelligence; this is not just about your IQ, but about how you approach problems and continually seek new knowledge and opportunities. This can be achieved thanks to our Personal & Professional Development initiative. Employees are encouraged and empowered to acquire new skills as well as develop existing ones. The promotion and appraisal of intelligence has allowed staff to continually progress, no matter where they are in their careers.
If your professional core values align with those we have listed above, we look forward to hearing from you in the future!
