The ADIA values are the organisational principles that guide the way we work and the way decisions are made.
These values play a fundamental role in driving individuals and the organisation forward to achieve long-term growth and business success.
The three ADIA values that we expect our employees to demonstrate are:
> Prudent Innovation
At ADIA, we encourage our people to be innovative and generate new ideas as well as support change and improvement initiatives. This means appropriately challenging the status quo and championing new department initiatives. However, as a risk-sensitive business, it is vital that consideration of change is approached in a careful manner so that all new initiatives are fully analysed, considered and reviewed to reduce possible risk and drive continuous improvement. Professional judgements should demonstrate caution and ensure a good awareness of the balance between opportunities and risks involved in pursuing them. We recognise the importance of personal and professional development and encourage our employees to drive their own and others’ development while at ADIA. In addition to individual growth, ADIA is focused on organizational acceleration and ensuring the business is able to anticipate change and take advantage of market developments.
> Effective Collaboration
ADIA places strong emphasis on collaboration and seeks individuals who can proactively build relationships and networks, both internally and externally, that deliver results. We encourage individuals to gather input from those with different knowledge and opinions, across departments and at all levels within the business. ADIA welcomes those who take responsibility for working together towards a shared purpose and provide support for team objectives and decisions.
At ADIA the ability to communicate openly has an important role to play in building solid professional relationships. We value those who share opinions openly whilst also listening to the ideas of others. This means getting involved in productive and positive debates where ideas and suggestions can be discussed in a constructive manner.
> Disciplined Execution
ADIA expects individuals to set and achieve high standards that are aligned to our strategic objectives. Employees are given the responsibility for delivering ADIA’s objectives and do so by putting in place realistic, clear and practical plans to ensure that expected results are achieved. Effective delegation and the ability to drive completion of projects are essential to meeting objectives. We respect individuals who can demonstrate the necessary energy, drive and determination to deliver results and maintain focus and integrity despite being faced with difficult or challenging circumstances.
