Gem is proud to announce its new core value: ownership. At Gem, we believe that taking ownership of our work and the outcomes of that work is the key to creating a culture of accountability, trust, and success. In addition to our core values of customer-centricity, transparency, velocity, and diversity, we are committed to promoting a sense of ownership across all levels of our organization. We recognize that when our employees operate like owners, we all benefit from the results.

Ownership is about putting the company and the team first. It’s about taking responsibility for our work and holding ourselves accountable for the results. When we take ownership, we are motivated to go the extra mile and do what it takes to achieve our goals. We recognize that our success is dependent on the success of the company and the team as a whole.

One of the key aspects of ownership is being willing to jump in and solve problems. We don’t wait for someone else to take action; we take the initiative and work collaboratively to find solutions. We recognize that we are all in this together, and we all have a role to play in the success of the company.

Ownership also involves taking risks and learning from our mistakes. We recognize that failure is an inevitable part of growth, and we encourage our employees to take calculated risks and learn from their experiences. When we share our insights and learnings with others, we create a culture of continuous improvement and innovation.

At Gem, we believe that ownership is about more than just words. We encourage our employees to take ownership of their work by providing them with the resources and support they need to succeed. We promote a culture of collaboration, where everyone is empowered to contribute to the success of the company.

As a company, we are committed to sharing our experiences and learnings with others. We believe that by sharing our insights, we can help others grow and achieve their goals. We are excited to continue to build on our culture of ownership and to see the positive impact it has on our company and our employees.

Interested in learning more about how we operate, and what we hold true? We have open positions, and we’d love to hear from you.
