Wat bieden wij?
Solera follows a set of organizational principles (80/20, 30/30, 90/10) that encourage and foster an environment of innovation, high-performance, and results. Each day, these principles guide us how we operate.
Think 80/20…. We act this way
Drive managers and associates to focus their individual efforts on the 20 percent that produces 80 percent of the results. We require all of our associates to Think 80/20. On an organizational level, that means the focus should be on the 20 percent of the work that drives 80 percent of the value to our customers and employees. On an individual level, associates evaluate projects priorities using an 80/20 filter. With that filter, they can easily determine where their focus should be on the 20 percent of the work that drives 80 percent of the results, ensuring that their decisions are aligned with our largest and most important customers.
Lead initiatives to reduce waste by 30% and increase productivity by 30%. The 30/30 principle emphasizes reducing waste and wasteful processes by 30 percent while improving throughput by the same amount. During difficult financial times, many companies look to cut costs and neglect to eliminate waste. They focus on decreasing expenses by reducing head count rather than increasing efficiency and streamlining operations. At Solera, we focus on the throughput to drive revenue growth and increased EBITDA.
Live 90/10….We live
Direct managers and associates to personally assume 90 percent accountability for team-based projects with a remaining 10 percent of accountability to colleagues. Finally, we require our employees to Live 90/10, which means we impart a "got your back" mentality that advises each associate to take 90 percent ownership of the team's project and leave only 10 percent to the team. This prevents finger-pointing and motivates associates to collaborate. It also teaches them accountability and helps individuals to manage up, rather than waiting to be managed down or avoiding responsibility altogether.
