Alkaloid AD Skopje relies on the highest ethical norms and standards when doing business. We are sure that the ethical conduct of business is a prerequisite for lasting personal and professional success. Our key values are:
We accept people’s different views with respect and dignity. We promote diversity with admiration and empathy, regardless of anyone’s position in the company, background, age, gender, values, views, or interests. We recognize differences among people as a chance to learn something new and approach things differently.
To show that everyone matters, we must be fully transparent with our colleagues, clients, associates, investors, external partners, government institutions, community, and so on.
Transparency builds trust, and trust is the foundation on which we rely. This trust applies to everyone we communicate with, regardless of their level and is key to establishing and developing internal and external relationships, as it is the basis of good communication.
We use empathy and active listening to understand the other’s perspective, regardless of whether we agree with them or not. We show a desire to meet and understand our colleagues.
We get actively involved in the community and charitable events, both as individuals and as an organization. We always encourage our employees to give back to the community. We are responsible. We donate part of our resources, deeply convinced that it is our responsibility to give back to the community in which we live and work.
Integrity and honesty
We always try to do the right thing and practice what we preach. We strive to gain the trust of others by behaving consistently, in line with the company's high ethical norms, values, and commitments. We take responsibility for our actions. We feel strongly about what is right and wrong, always striving to do the right thing.
For us, integrity is the foundation of good leadership. We demonstrate that this value is the basis to build trust with all our stakeholders. Working with integrity means that you always have to do your job properly, even when difficult.
We are all Alkaloid ambassadors, representing the company at different levels and through various interactions with all stakeholders. We take the responsibility to act as role models by forging strong and sustainable relationships within the organization based on high morality and honesty. For us, integrity is a guiding principle at all levels and in all activities within Alkaloid, so we work hard to create a working environment and atmosphere where integrity flourishes.
Acting with integrity means ensuring that every decision made is based on the highest ethical and moral principles. Trust and honesty are the key elements of Alkaloid's concept of integrity. On the job, employees who act with integrity always tell the truth; they do the right thing, even when no one is watching.
We get the best results together
Our people exceed expectations all the time. They advance and take action to satisfy customers’ needs, striving to go the extra mile at each task, activity, or project.
Our employees are leaders, committed to and passionate about their work, guided by their own example, and focused on their goals. We rely on tradition, built and maintained for decades. We are agile, we accept change, and we see its benefits.
Our people give their best at work all the time, always learning new skills and competencies, helping the company grow always.
We always strive to be innovative and stimulate and reward our employees' creativity and entrepreneurship.
One of the keys to a successful business is actively and fully involved and engaged employees. Line managers appreciate our employees' commitment to their work and help them be proud and aware of what they achieve for the company. Our employees are self-motivated to work hard towards achieving the common goal.
Our leaders influence the values of our company too. To develop properly, leaders should impose their values. We talk about responsible leadership - a combination of commitment, determination, and understanding for employees. Values are the guiding principles of action in our company. We encourage our company leaders, in addition to competencies, to select their employees based on their values too. When personal values and corporate values overlap, that’s when we can talk about the ideal relationship.
Our leaders always start from themselves, think of what they stand for and what their values are. They continuously work to get to know themselves - to be sure they can influence themselves first, so they can influence others as well.
Our leaders achieve balance - they consider various perspectives and different points of view to get the full picture. Balance means you approach all sides and positions with an open mind.
Our leaders are truly self-confident and accept themselves as they are. They recognize their strengths and weaknesses and strive towards continuous improvement. Being truly self-confident, our leaders know that there will always be someone more competent, accomplished, successful, or similar to them. They are also aware of where they belong and recognize and value differences.
Our leaders never forget who they are and where they come from. They remain modest even in the moments when they experience great success in the company. Genuine modesty helps us appreciate every person we meet and treat everyone with respect.
To keep us competitive and successful, our leaders need to recruit and strive to retain the best talent in the company. To do so, we encourage them to nurture meritocracy, that is, to hire, reward, and promote the best people based on their merit and work contribution.
As leaders, we are accountable to ourselves, to our employees, and to our superiors. Moral and ethical conduct starts at the top and flows downwards, encouraging and building a sound corporate culture at Alkaloid.
