At Benchmark we believe that great leadership is a vital to the success of our business. Leaders make an organisation’s objectives clear. They inspire and motivate people to deliver against these objectives and are trusted by people in the organisation. We have a specific vision of leadership which we define clearly to all our people and which we encourage them to demonstrate. We define leaders as people who:
MOTIVATE AND INSPIRE VISION – leaders are active role models
MAXIMISE RESOURCES TO ACHIEVE VISION – leaders motivate and inspire people to achieve results above and beyond what is expected of them
ACHIEVE POSITIVE RESULTS FOR ALL STAKEHOLDERS – leaders have the organisations’s values at the heart of everything they do.
- PERFORMANCE – We respect all our stakeholders’ needs and work towards delivering these, conscious of the changing environments in which we live and work. We want to create a winning partnership for our clients and our people.
- PEOPLE AND THE PLANET – We act with honesty and integrity in all our dealings with people and the planet, striving to make a difference.
- PASSION – We are one team working towards one vision. We take pride in delivering exceptional standards of work – adding value, being flexible, proactive and going that extra mile.
All our people at some stage have to lead. We believe that it is important that we equip them with the vision and skills to do this. Good leadership is about providing the support to those around you, so that they can develop the skills that will allow them to independent and not dependant. Leadership is about ensuring that an environment is provided so that people may flourish and not be diminished. Leadership is about providing hope and not despair!
