As Teleios commemorates over 20 years of operations, so much has changed since that fateful day in February 1997. But we find the things that we choose to celebrate are those things that were important at the outset and which have essentially remained unchanged; the founding values and perspectives.
We learned much over the 20 years and we were able to refine and obtain greater clarity on what these things came to mean in a changing world but they have defined the unique entity that Teleios has become and remained.
Beyond the software we develop and the services we deliver these core principles and perspectives guide all that we do:
We expect challenges, we allow them to stretch and expand us, enjoy them even but never to destroy us.
PURPOSE OVER PROFIT
Teleios was never conceived as a business designed exclusively for financial gain. Profit is not the overriding objective.
CONSISTENCY AND QUALITY DELIVERY
Striving for consistency and quality delivery have always been valued as ends in themselves. We have achieved this by empowering each individual, encouraging them to take personal responsibility for executing their task.
WILLINGNESS TO SACRIFICE/WILLINGNESS TO WAIT
A preference for building something that has long-term value and sustainability despite the short term cost.
VALUE OF THE WHOLE TELEIOS PERSON
Teleios has always valued each individual beyond their technical competence and ability.
INNOVATION AND CREATIVITY
Teleios has always been focused on finding creative ways to engage people’s capacity in all that they do.
We at Teleios have a firm belief that two are better than one – teams are fundamental to the Teleios way of life.
Teleios always had a global vision as evidenced by our tag line – “Software to run the world.”
At Teleios, leadership is not a title, but really represents a place of personal responsibility, accountability and loyalty. A Teleios leader is willing to protect and sacrifice for those being led and is a creator of other leaders.
