T = Truthful
It is imperative to us that all members of the company operate in a truthful manner. We need to know that we can rely on what people are saying and that they will be honest with each other and our clients. This is not always easy, but some wise person once said, “Honesty is the best policy”. Well we believe this and have made it part of our policy.
I = Independent
Testing as a discipline needs to remain independent of other functions in order that it can provide an unbiased view on quality. Lack of independence places a testing department under the same constraints in terms of time and cost and therefore quality can become compromised. We pride ourselves on the fact that Testing is all that we do. We live and breathe the subject and can always be relied upon to act independently.
G= Good Willed
We expect our staff to be good willed because this is a personality trait that we embody as an organisation. As a result we are affiliated with several organisations and as a group contribute charitably each year. We work with some local organisations and some as large as the NSPCC.
E = Energetic
Energy is incredibly important to us. We want our employees to work hard and play hard. We expect them to be passionate about testing and what it involves. We expect them to demonstrate an enthusiasm for their work and not view it as just a job.
R = Reliable
We need to be able to rely on our resources and we expect our clients to rely on us also. Reliability is a cornerstone on which we build, taking care of the basics by ensuring that we can be counted upon to be knowledgeable and dependable, providing value into our organisation and those of our clients.
Not only is the acronym easy to remember, but it is a strong image and one with which all of our employees are happy to associate. From a TCL India perspective, the Tiger is probably even more powerful an image, being so highly revered.
