Our Values

Our Values

At Apar, our journey transcends traditional business narratives; it’s a testament to a culture deeply rooted in innovation, collaboration, and individual growth. Established in 2006 in Singapore with a small group, we’ve today evolved into a global consulting and IT services organisation, spanning 12 global locations with over 2500 employees. Yet, our true strength lies in the unique culture we’ve cultivated.

Our Distinctive Culture

At the heart of Apar is a culture that thrives on the principles of innovation and collaboration. Within our team, our greatest assets, we prioritize well-being, continuous learning, and growth. Open communication is our cornerstone, ensuring that every team member’s voice is not just acknowledged but valued.

Each one of us plays a crucial role in our common goal-delivering exceptional services to our clients. It’s not just a job; it’s a collective endeavor where everyone’s contribution matters. Individual successes are valued and celebrated. This mindset permeates every aspect of our work, creating an environment where individual success is intertwined with the success of the team and, ultimately, the success of our clients. Our collaborative spirit goes beyond mere cooperation; it’s a shared belief that together, we can achieve greatness.

In our pursuit of excellence, we embrace learning and innovation, making them an inseparable part of our DNA. We view challenges not as obstacles but as opportunities to push our boundaries and discover new solutions.

Guiding Principles: Our Core Values

Central to our success are our core values that not only shape but define our business philosophy

Obsess about customer success

We start with the customer and work backwards vigorously striving to earn and keep customer trust.

Take ownership

We act on behalf of the entire company, beyond just for ourselves or our own team. We never say “that’s not my job.”

Innovate, Simplify, and Insist on the Highest Standards

We expect innovation from our teams and always find ways to simplify and accomplish more with less, continually raising the bar to deliver higher quality services and processes.

Think Big, Act Fast, Take Risks

We create and communicate a bold direction that inspires results. Speed matters in business. Many decisions and actions are reversible and do not need extensive study. So we act fast and encourage calculated risk taking.

Learn and Be Curious

We are never done learning and always seek to improve ourselves. We are curious about new possibilities and act to explore them and are not limited by “not invented here”.

Trust, Respect, and Be Empathetic

We listen attentively, encourage openness, speak candidly with transparency, and treat others respectfully. We lead with empathy. We are vocally self-critical, even when doing so is awkward or embarrassing.

Have a Backbone; Disagree and Commit

We are obligated to respectfully challenge decisions when we disagree, even when doing so is uncomfortable or exhausting. However once a decision is determined, we commit wholly.

Champion Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We engage our collective experiences, strengths, and different points of view with humility, respect and curiosity to challenge and stretch our own thinking to improve the decision making process.

Have Fun at Work

We have fun at work and make it easy for others to have fun, creating a more relaxed and informal work environment.
