What makes us tick

Our values drive our everyday. From how we interact with clients, to our next product launch. Everybody at Shephard is driven by:

1. A desire to excel

We want to deliver the best work possible as individuals and a company

We seek out ways to improve our performance

We won't stop until we have bettered our past performance

2. Challenging the status quo

Asking whether we are doing things in the best way possible

Asking if there is a different way we can serve the market

We acknowledge the business and its requirements will always evolve and feel comfortable with that change

3. Treating our colleagues and customers with integrity

We say what we mean and don't hide an agenda behind our words

We offer honest and constructive feedback of others performance

We ensure customers have all the information they need to understand and value our products

We happily tell customers if we don't have a solution that fit their requirements

4. Seeking creative solutions

Not relying on doing things the way they have always been done before

Taking the time to look at different approaches to a problem

Not taking the easy way out
