About Us

Our Culture: Temenosity

Temenos’ culture powers the company. We define it as ‘Temenosity’ because this single word captures the spirit of who we are and how we make things happen: collaboratively, dynamically and boldly.

Temenosity is our ‘secret sauce’:

• It drives us to make our customers successful and banking better
• It captures who we are, what we deliver for our clients and the unique way we do it
• It’s what got us to where we are today and it will continue to propel us forward

Temenosity is the magic that makes Temenos, Temenos. We say that our people have it, that our clients have it and that our partner community has it too. Temenosity represents our shared commitment to each other, it captures how we see things differently and it describes how we work together to fulfil our purpose to make banking perform better.

What is Temenosity ?

These are some of the words that our employees told us it represents for them:

Temenos + Tenacity

We are innovators who disrupt the status quo. We are driven and hate to lose, so we never give up. We put Temenos first to achieve great things.

+ Velocity

We operate with a long-term strategic view and a day-to-day sense of urgency. We are ambitious, never stand still and are always thinking ahead. We are growth-minded, execution-focused and results-driven.

+ Responsibility

We act with integrity and keep our promises. We love, protect and invest in our software and technology. We relentlessly focus on value creation.

+ Authenticity

We are straight talkers, hate politics and do not let hierarchy define us. We work with freedom and are not afraid of taking risks. We champion diversity and see things differently.

+ Community

We care about and respect each other in good times and bad. We work collaboratively and inspire each other. We put our clients at the heart of everything we do.

= Temenosity

These are the qualities that make up Temenosity.

The Temenos Key

At Temenos, we have a philosophy that says ‘people are the key’. Temenos was founded on this ethos and the Temenos Key was created, to be worn by Temenosians, as a physical reminder of the integrity, commitment and care with which we do business.

The keys are given to employees on milestone work anniversaries as a gesture of appreciation for their loyalty and dedication to Temenos.
