Values

Our students, our staff, our suppliers and our business partners trust us. This trust is earned by our behavior according to this code of conduct:

Integrity
We always conduct ourselves and our business honestly and honourably.

Accountability
Trust means relying on someone’s word. We should only agree to what we can deliver, and we do our very best to deliver what we have agreed.

Respect
To achieve trust and to reach our fullest potential, we must respect one-another. We respect our colleagues, students, clients and employers, and expect the same from them.

Passion
To achieve great things, we must care about our goals and targets. Having passion for what we do provides purpose and energy to motivate great outcomes.

Culture

JDMIS strives to create a positive work environment with a culture based on:

Collaboration
In a small organization, everyone in a team must work together, taking on responsibility and displaying autonomy and leadership to achieve success. Hierarchies within JDMIS should be neither a barrier nor an excuse to producing great outcomes.

Personal Excellence
Self-management is a hallmark of successful entrepreneurs and passionate, driven team members. JDMIS team members are expected to always put maximum effort into whatever they do to overcome obstacles and create solutions in a challenging growth environment.

Enabling Success
Failure is not an option – sometimes plans don’t work out, but JDMIS team members can always look to one another for help to adapt to situations, find solutions and develop winning strategies. If any one of our team fails, nobody wins!
