Sustainable Development……

In our long term vision, this balancing should integrate all pillars of sustainable development.
  • Economic sustainability stresses the need to change from old sector-centred ways, of doing business to new approaches that involve cross-sectorial co-ordination and the integration of environmental and social concerns into all development processes.
  • Environmental sustainability is the process of making sure current processes of interaction with the environment are pursued with the idea of keeping the environment as pristine as naturally possible based on ideal-seeking behaviour.
  • Social sustainability occurs when the formal and informal processes; systems; structures; and relationships actively support the capacity of current and future generations to create healthy and liveable communities. Socially sustainable communities are equitable, diverse, connected and democratic and provide a good quality of life.

We Value Our People……

At Hamelin we believe that people are our biggest asset and have spent the last few years developing an environment that demonstrates that belief. We are fully committed to the ongoing training & development of our employees and as a result have been accredited with “Investors in People” .

We have a set of values that we work towards to ensure that we stay focussed on the customer and the needs of the market whilst ensuring we all enjoy day to day work and feel valued by the business.

We are a small dedicated team at Hamelin and these values we believe make a difference to our success:

Team Players: We believe in one team, we support and trust our colleagues, we embrace challenge.

Ambitious: We seek to raise the game in all that we do, we don’t accept the status quo without challenge, we are not afraid to fail in pursuit of our goals, we’re energetic.

In the detail: We seek out root causes, we love data & analysis, we base decisions on fact when we can, we take time to pause & reflect.

Personally Committed: We engage actively in what we do and hold ourselves accountable, we listen & engage, we go the extra mile, we work hard & take time to thank our colleagues.

Change Enthusiasts: We embrace change when it comes, we drive it where it’s needed and we are flexible in our approach.
