VALUES & PRINCIPLES

Established in 1980, Switz Group has expanded its footprint geographically and through JVs over the last three decades. It is focussed on the Indian sub continent and the Middle East as key focus areas.

It has no formalised mission or vision statement. However, it has clearly defined values and founding principles.

We are the Switz family

It includes our employees (past and present), JV partners, bankers, auditors, vendors, and most importantly our customers. Like a family our relationships are not transactional in nature.

Teamwork is the foundation of all great enterprise

Rotating empowered leadership, 360 degree consultation on strategy, open access to owners, long term recognition (especially at lower levels) of value creating stars, “celebrating” top leadership unsuccesses are some of the elements.

The major responsibility of Leadership is to create learning organisations

This is evident in our strategy of joint ventures, multiple leadership, and geographical diversity. We actively pursue new young leadership and innovative businesses ideas to continuously create a humble but ambitious work culture by peppering our successes with unsuccesses.

Execution is all important

A good strategy/product/market is hard to find. While we try to find new ones, we need to execute and run our existing businesses superbly well to create the surpluses to fund new risky growth paths.
