TEMENOSITY: Our ‘Secret Sauce’
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
These are the qualities that make up TEMENOSITY.
We know that our people are the driving force behind everything we do – it’s their TEMENOSITY that brings the magic to what we do.
Everything starts and ends with our clients’ goals. When our customers win, we win. It’s that simple.
Average people see difficulties, exceptional people see opportunities.
We inspire by living up to our full potential. We dream big and pursue our goals fearlessly.
We are committed to growing a sustainable business and delivering value to society. Integrity and transparency are at the heart of how we work.
The Temenos Key
