Difficult situations are a barometer for your level of professionalism. We operate on what is ethical and assume personal responsibility. At Bennett, we are very dedicated to professionalism and that means looking the part. CEO Chris Bennett, takes this to the max never having worn jeans a day in his life. Not that we don’t let our employees wear jeans, but we do expect a certain level of professionalism from each individual.
Part of being a professional is representing yourself as one and having integrity to do what’s right for the customer. You can always expect that from us here at Bennett because it’s who we are. The nature of the technology business is risky. You need specialized professionals to keep your irreplaceable information secure. We hold our employees to high standards which makes us a stronger, more responsible company.
Family & Fun
Family is important to us here at Bennett Office Technologies. As a family owned business, we appreciate the importance of family and are constantly building towards a culture of respect for one another. We take our fun seriously. Seriously. We don’t just hang out from 9 to 5, we have a family atmosphere that carries over into the after hours too! With events like our annual Holiday Party, our Golf Outing, Summer Picnics and Stingers Games, we enjoy our coworkers and customers and consider them our work family. The average employee has been with Bennett for 10 years!
Operations that are translucent build trust with stakeholders while maintaining confidentiality. Transparency encourages leaders to live by example. We strive to be completely open and honest about our processes, contracts, and just our business in general. For example, see the our Bennett Bits Blog “Business Ethics-What is your process?” by CFO, Chris Bennett.
We realize that compromise is a team effort in order to obtain everyone’s business goals. We measure success by achievements that our employees and customers have. We are committed and loyal to our customers and to partnering to meet their needs. Whether its helping to cut costs or monitoring their networks remotely, we believe partnering provides consistent focused customer experience for our customers.
