Shared Values

Living our values

Values represent the very foundation of a company. They express the culture, spirit and way a company runs its business – towards customers, stakeholders, but also towards its employees.

The more committed a company is to its values, the stronger its business will perform.

Correspondingly our five Shared Values are of great importance at ista.
