Core values are not a corporate declaration, but rather a community standard. In our case, the community of Sabah Oil & Gas Development Corporations Sdn Bhd.In any community, values are extracted, lived, and felt – not scripted. They come from what is shared and often unwritten; they create identity and belonging; and, together, they act as a compass. In choosing the right values, they shall be true for our engineers and brings the same meaning for our Finance, IT, Admin employees and the rest. The message is a value does not become a purposeful value if it’s not embraced by everyone. And they shall serve as a cultural adhesive wherever the goal is to engage the talents, interests, and backgrounds of those in the organization for maximum productivity.
