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 work hard and with an entrepreneurial courage.

+ Velocity

We work with freedom and are not afraid of making mistakes. We are ambitious, never stand still and are always thinking ahead. We are execution-focused and results-driven.

+ Integrity

We act with integrity and keep our promises. We build great software. We understand it, we invest in it, we love it. We relentlessly focus on value creation.

+ Authenticity

We are straight talkers and hate politics. We do not let hierarchy define us. We champion diversity because it helps us to see things differently.

+ Community

Relationships are our true currency. We care about each other in good times and bad. We work selflessly, doing what’s right for Temenos, for our clients and for society as a whole. We believe in banking and are in it for the long term.

= 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.
