Respect for the individual
Omega is made up of a wide variety of exceptional people. The Omega environment demands that all employees are treated with understanding and respect, and that team members aim to assist and maximize each other’s potential whenever possible.
- We respect the capacity and desire for personal growth
- We deal with each other in an open and honest way
- We encourage constructive criticism
- We believe a collaborative environment enables continuous learning
- We lead by example
- We encourage pluralism, guard the principles of non-discrimination, and take particular care not to discriminate based on sex, race, age, religion, ethnicity or nationality

In order to maintain a profile of uncompromising integrity and strict ethical conduct, we expect that employees maintain their own personal integrity in work situations. Omega’s profile is built on the actions of every employee. In order to assess your ethical integrity, ask yourself the following questions:
- Have I lied or caused anyone to have a false impression of my motives or objectives?
- How would I feel if the full details of what I did appeared on the front page of a newspaper?
- Can I justify my actions to each of the parties involved?
- Have I discussed the situation with my manager and/or other colleagues?
If you are ever in doubt about ethical actions or decisions, please be open and ask an Omega Manager, or email your concerns to email@example.com
