Philosophy

Philosophy

The Drees & Sommer corporate philosophy consists of eight statements that express how we think, how we work together, and what sets us apart. The first statement (VALUE GUARANTEED) shows what we achieve. The following five statements explain how we do this:

  • By acting ethically (SUCCESS WITH INTEGRITY)
  • By giving our employees adequate scope (GOOD IDEAS – NO LIMITS)
  • By assuming a leadership role in the marketplace (LEADING THE WAY)
  • By retaining our partnership-based company structure (INDEPENDENT TOGETHER)
  • By taking pride in success with our clients (PASSION FOR PERFORMANCE)

We also say where we provide our services (GLOBALLY LOCAL) and look to the future (INNOVATION FOR THE FUTURE). Each statement has two dimensions: What it means for our clients and what it means for our employees.

We always add value to projects. Our clients can count on it. We offer our employees job security and the certainty that we value innovative ideas.

We take the straight and narrow path to success. We are happy to give this promise to our clients in writing – as compliance certification, signed and sealed. We are fair to our employees and demand honesty from them, too.

We get things done. The more responsibilities our clients entrust us with, the better. Because we want to make a difference. Our employees see themselves as intrapreneurs. They take responsibility early, are allowed to exert influence and implement their ideas.

We are ready to take the lead. As market leader, we pave the way for innovations. In projects, we take responsibility and lead our customers to success. We develop our employees to strong managers who inspire others and motivate them to achieve excellence.

We own our group. No bank, no hedge fund, no group interferes in our operations. Our customers experience this in the form of neutral and objective advice. Our employees know that they can achieve much as a team – from project manager to partner.

We love what we do. Difficult situations inspire us to give our all. And the enthusiasm and passion with which we tackle jobs infects our clients and other service providers involved in the project. Our employees work and celebrate together.

Worldwide, we have the best teams on the ground. Regardless of where we are working for our clients, we speak the language and understand the culture. Our employees think and act across team, country and project boundaries – because good ideas don't have a zip code.

We promote innovative ideas. In projects, we talk to our clients about what will be relevant for them in future. Ecology and economy go hand in hand. Our employees continue to develop, too – personally and professionally.
