What is Fornax?
Fornax has different usages but we love all of them! It's a Roman goddess, one of the 88 modern constellations made by three bright stars named Alpha, Beta and Nu Fornacis. One more thing, Fornax A (NGC 1316) is a galaxy, far far away.
Transparency is the most important topic in the company. How we do it? Communication is key! We tell each other everything. Every idea, every step; we like to communicate about it. Since we share everything, we always have each other’s back.
Transparency increases Trust. We trust each other on our work and skills. Just as Simon Sinek says “A team is not a group of people that work together. A team is a group of people that trust each other.” The trust we have for each other does not only make us a company but also a family.
According to Philosopher Immanuel Kant autonomy is „the right for one to make their own decisions excluding any interference from others and as the capacity to make such decisions through one’s own independence of mind […].“ We don’t have hierarchical levels where one is told what to do. Everybody has their own mind and can speak of it. We show respect to every idea and discuss every topic very detailed before we come to any conclusions about our work. We appreciate every effort that will benefit our company.
With transparency and trust comes responsibility. We are a non-hierarchic company that trusts in their workers. Everybody in our team is free and responsible for themselves and their work. But of course in times of crisis we stick to each other to help out with each other’s responsibilities.
Teamwork is as important as transparency. Our team is not only work buddies but we tend to call our team a family. We trust each other, help each other and have fun together.
Collaboration or in other words Team Play. We believe that in combining individuals with different mindsets will improve our work for the better. The reason why collaboration skills are so important because no matter how well-educated you are, if you are not able to articulate your ideas well you won’t be able to make significant progress in your work.
Efficiency is important to keep deadlines and deliver tasks on time. We try to work in an environment that guarantees us the efficiency we need on our daily work routine. Everybody therefore has their own methods and and routines to raise their efficiency.
Technology is changing, so are we. We love new ideas. The idea of our company is not just to keep up with the changing world but also contribute to it, even lead it. Therefore research, interest and motivation for new ideas are the key interests we look in our team.
