At Mayden we have a flat structure – meaning that in a company of 70, we have four directors but no other levels of management. We each have autonomy as well as responsibility for the decisions we make and the work we do.
About two years ago, we identified and established our core values. Today, they guide the decisions we make as individuals, as teams and as a company – from the way we’re structured, to how we choose projects, to the people we hire, to the way we run our meetings. Not a day goes by when our values don’t help us answer questions, function better and work more collaboratively.
In the coming months, we’ll be sharing a series of blogs on the internal work we’ve been doing over the past several years to make Mayden the kind of company we all want to work for. For now, read on to find out more about our values and what they mean to us.
We aim for tomorrow
“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.” – Margaret Mead
We imagine a future where technology truly supports healthcare services deliver consistent, high quality care whilst running with total efficiency. We pursue that future relentlessly through innovation, creativity and continual growth, for the benefit of patients.
We believe in learning as a lifestyle. We question our assumptions, positively challenge our own ways of working, and keenly experiment with new technology and processes. We are constantly experimenting, evaluating and improving the work that we do and the way we do it.
We let the facts speak
“Transparency breeds trust, and trust is the foundation of great teamwork.” – Joel Gascoigne
We’re open about our business practices, the challenges we face, and the things we learn. We’re accountable to each other and work in self managing teams to meet shared objectives. We track and measure in order to learn from our experiences.
We believe that each of us has a responsibility to share what we learn, in order to build and sustain meaningful, positive change.
We do our best work together
“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” – Henry Ford
We believe that the best solutions come when we work as a team, pooling knowledge and sharing expertise. We do our best work together – internally with our colleagues, and externally, with other organisations. We consider ourselves a partner rather than a supplier, and work alongside our customers to understand their challenges, then imagine and deliver solutions.
Everyone can make a difference
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” – Barack Obama
Everything we do is driven by our fierce ambition to make a valuable contribution to healthcare, for the benefit of patients. Each one of us takes responsibility for giving our best to the process because each one of us has the passion, talent and commitment to make a difference.
