mission and vision
Our people, the key to our success
At Haizea Wind Group, we are firmly convinced that our people and our culture represent an important competitive advantage, aimed at creating long-term value for our customers and shareholders.
In consistence with this idea, our focus on the development of people became a priority for each and every leader within the organisation. We promote a work environment of mutual respect and open communication, in which autonomy together with teamwork and contribution to results are key to successfully face the challenges of growth and change.
Our culture is based on the integrity of our actions, consistent leadership, a determined customer orientation and our professionals’ passion for their work.
We sell the expectation to deliver. Every project is a new project in which everything is yet to be done and we can only “sell” that expectation. We must meet and deliver the contracted quality, deadline and cost.
Our environment and its sustainability are values that we uphold, both in the end product (our equipment is key in wind power facilities) and in our procedures and the way our products are manufactured, minimising our footprint.
We owe it to every one of our customers, to whom we will serve without coercion for interests other than to fulfil our contractual commitments with them.
We will go as far as our people allow us. Haizea Wind Group employees are our greatest asset and the source of our success.
