We are at the beginning of an exciting journey for Unifi.
Over the past few months, our leadership team initiated pivotal conversations around company culture and Unifi’s unique vision for the future. These discussions focused on designing an inclusive culture that aligns with our values and operating principles.
This topic came to the forefront when our Chief Executive Officer, Gautam Thakker, traveled nationwide to meet with our extended network of customers and employees. Gautam believes that leaders must understand what drives employee behavior on a day-to-day basis in order for an organization to operate successfully. In each encounter, he asked about Unifi’s culture and quickly realized that an evolution was taking place. It was time to re-examine our vision and realign the message to reflect the shared values of our current team.
This new perspective is intended to convey the value of Unifi as an organization, a place where our team can learn confidently and grow professionally. We look forward to moving forward as a new company with a renewed vision and purpose and a fresh focus on serving our customers, creating exceptional experiences, and strengthening the communities in which we live and work.
Our Vision for Unifi
Our vision is to be the most RESPECTED company and providing an EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE getting aircrafts and passengers to their destination.
Based on the feedback from our Unifi community and the iterative process on behalf of our leadership team, we arrived at a new vision and purpose statement to describe why we do what we do and where we’re going next. Our concentration on our people will serve as the roadmap to guide our efforts and drive our success.
Respect comes in many different forms. Our ultimate goal is to create a trusting work environment where everyone knows what we stand for and respects the work that we do. Rooted in mutual respect, we can create exceptional experiences for our employees, customers, and their passengers.
Culture: Shaping How We Work
We take the time to listen, ask why and explain why.
We treat others with courtesy, dignity, and respect regardless of title and position.
We are focused on performance with continuous feedback.
We take pleasure in helping our clients meet their goals, client’s passengers have a great travel experience, and my co-workers succeed. We celebrate wins!
Our culture shapes how we work. From our senior leaders to our employees on the frontlines, we are a diverse team. Our diversity is an asset and we leverage our different backgrounds to create respectful, inclusive experiences for our customers and their passengers. From a foundation of inclusion and mutual respect, we will focus on excellent performance and reward achievements with gusto.
Values: What Guides Us
We believe in what we do, we are excited about the impact of our work, and we have fun doing it.
We are honest, ethical, and do the right thing.
We understand our client’s and co-worker’s world so we can understand and appreciate how our actions and decisions impact them.
Passion, integrity, and empathy are essential values to guide us to an inclusive, respectful, performance-driven, and rewarding culture. As our talented team continues to grow, our recruiters are seeking employees that demonstrate these three values. While our financial and performance goals are important to the business, we simply can’t achieve these ambitions without a team that reflects our values.
How We’ll Get There
Our journey is exactly that—an act of traveling from one place to another. As we embark on a new vision, our renewed culture and values will guide us along the way. The leadership team will intentionally reinforce our messaging at every opportunity to inspire our team to champion our vision and embody our purpose in their day-to-day operations.
We have identified a number of focus areas to help us on our journey. First and foremost, safety is our number one priority and everyone’s responsibility. We will maintain a level of consistent accountability and seamless collaboration throughout our operations. A client-centric approach will be the focal point as we flawlessly execute a high level of service and find new ways to stay innovative.
We are thrilled to begin this new chapter at Unifi and look forward to uniting in our efforts to achieve success for our customers, our company, and each other.
