Vision, Mission and Values
Our company’s Vision, Mission and Values are the cornerstones of our culture. They guide our global strategy, define our overarching goals, and serve as a constant reminder of ARCOR’s high performing, innovative and empowered culture.
Our Vision, Mission and Values are inspired by our teammates, our rich history, and our promising future. For 15 years, ARCOR has been the driving force behind some of world’s greatest engineering feats.
These guiding principles help ensure that our company will continue to provide solutions for a more connected, sustainable world for many years to come.
Providing Solutions For A More Connected, Sustainable World
To be the world’s premier design, engineering, construction and technical services firm delivering end-to-end, innovative solutions, that provide superior value to our clients
Our values stand on a foundation of SAFETY, INTEGRITY, INCLUSION, and DIVERSITY.
- PEOPLE are the heart of our business
- CLIENTS are our valued partners
- PERFORMANCE excellence is our commitment
- PROFITABLE growth is an imperative
Our history begins with the company's founding by Seymen family in 2003. Since then, we have gradually evolved from a small trading company to the global engineering and construction group as we are today.
About two-thirds of ARCOR's consistent growth comes from organic expansion as we serve the changing and growing needs of our customers. Because we partner with our clients and truly understand their business objectives, we work in the locations and industries where they need us to be; and we position ourselves to serve their needs effectively.
Another way ARCOR is able to continuously improve and grow is through acquisition. We have acquired more than 10 businesses, and each one has contributed to our reach and capabilities. Together, as ARCOR, we deliver the benefits of a fully integrated global organization.
Our rich history guides our growth, and the possibilities are limitless in terms of the company we are yet to become. But a few simple things remain constant throughout times of change: our firm commitment to our relationship based business model; and our focus on safety, quality and ethics are foundational to who we are.
For ARCOR, safety is more than a policy manual or a training video; it’s how we do business and it’s how we live 24/7. ARCOR invites you to experience our culture of caring – a culture in which safety, health and welfare are top priorities; and in which we’re all responsible for looking out for one another.
ARCOR's safety culture extends outside the office walls, beyond the project site and into our cars, our homes, and our communities; affecting all the people we interact with everywhere around the world.
Ethics and Integrity
Over decades of consistent behavior guided by ourcore values, ARCOR has earned a reputation as an ethical company. We make decisions with fairness and honesty, holding ourselves and our colleagues accountable for high standards of conduct on each job we do throughout the world.
Our Board of Directors, CEO, and Senior Financial Officers take ethics and integrity very seriously. Our company is built upon a deep commitment to ethical behavior and as such our leadership at the highest levels are governed by a code of conduct. Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics for ARCOR Board of Directors and our Code of Ethics for the Chief Executive Officer and Senior Financial Officers demonstrates our pledge to run our company with integrity.
ARCOR's Code of Conduct is a useful guide for all our employees worldwide that outlines our collective commitment to our values and beliefs, and helps us exercise ethical decision making and good judgment – even in difficult situations.
ARCOR also expects the companies we partner with to operate with a high level of integrity, and our corresponding Supplier Code of Conduct is applicable to those in our supply chain. We also encourage our employees and suppliers to ask questions when in doubt and report violations, which they can do via an email address.
At ARCOR, we value inclusion and diversity because it energizes our people and encourages creativity, collaboration, and innovation. Learning about new and different perspectives and experiences creates more varied thinking. Considering several unique points of view often results in better decisions and solutions for our clients, our investors, and ultimately our company.
The term “inclusive” can refer to many things; but as it applies to ARCOR, it means welcoming and respecting the varied backgrounds, talents, skills, and experiences of all our employees and everyone we do business with around the world – embracing and appreciating both our similarities and our differences. Inclusion is woven throughout our culture of caring; enabling us to be an engaged, committed, and productive company that produces positive results for our clients and their stakeholders.
Our clients want to find the best sustainable solutions for their projects around the world. We help them do just that. ARCOR is dedicated to the advancement of safe and sustainable services for our clients and within our own company. Ourcore values guide our commitment to an ethical, relationship-based, and cost-conscious business — a sustainable business.
Around the world, across all disciplines, ARCOR works to constantly demonstrate our commitment to sustainability through our words and actions. That commitment is reflected every day through our low-cost posture, our Global Sustainability Commitment Statement.
We are continually improving and reinvigorating our efforts to be responsible stewards of the natural world as we contribute timely and efficient services and effective, tailored sustainable solutions for our clients. This is the best way we can save them money and help make their businesses successful. The work we do supports them in achieving their project goals – and in creating an enduring legacy.
Our delivery philosophy is simple: ARCOR is located around the world where our clients are today and where they need us to be tomorrow. Their needs help drive our business, so we expand our offerings, locations, and staff to best serve them when and where they need us.
The result is a global network of local offices that share common values and a commitment to customized service. ARCOR employees from our 7 locations communicate seamlessly across geographic and disciplinary areas on a daily basis to collaborate, share innovative ideas and best practices, and help clients find the best solutions for every project. We do this through regular use of our internal social communication tools and through a variety of facilitated networking events and functions that create a boundary-free, supportive and productive atmosphere within the company.
With our dedicated employees, ARCOR's diverse and international workforce gives clients an established local presence that understands their businesses, helping to reduce risk and maximize value. Because everyone at ARCOR is guided by the same core values and operates according to the same Code of Conduct, we behave and perform consistently no matter where we are; one company around the globe.
