Hub work ethics

 

Members are committed to mindful behaviour in all of our dealings with fellow members and the world in which we live. Our mindfulness policy covers our behaviour as members in any forum, mailing list, wiki, website, Skype, public meeting or private correspondence.

We also apply the principles listed below in our relationship with our supporting ecosystems as well as person to person relationships and endeavour to create a rejuvenative ecological footprint

 

Respectful

A community where people feel comfortable is a productive and sustainable one. Synergize Hub expects members to be respectful when dealing with fellow members, members of each other’s networks, our co-tenants and people outside of the space.

Collaborative

Synergize is about collaboration. We encourage individuals and teams to work together both inside and outside Synergize. Collaboration multiplies our capacity to take on bigger and bolder challenges, ensures opportunities are maximised, reduces redundancy, shares capital and improves the quality of our work.

Wherever possible, we:

  • Monitor initiatives and developments within our networks and liaise with others in our respective communities 
  • Inform fellow Synergize members as early as possible of collaboration possibilities and opportunities Involve interested parties as early as possible
  • Share information
  • Work transparently
  • Notify collaborators of project changes early on
  • Document our work
  • Inform others of our progress and observations regularly

Consultative

Check in with all members. Social and technical misunderstandings and
disagreements happen all the time, and Synergize is no exception. We resolve disagreements constructively with the help of all members. We have created a regular dedicated resolution time at the end of
meetings to ensure all matters are discussed.

Open to questioning

Nobody is expected to be perfect. Asking questions avoids problems down the road. If you are asked a question, be responsive and helpful. When asking questions, take care to do so in an appropriate space.

Considerate

Make an effort to minimize disruption when leaving a collaboration or changing roles within a project. Inform collaborators as early as possibly that you are leaving, and take steps to ensure others can pick up where you left off.

Confidential

This means keeping information shared or overheard to yourself. As we will be working closely with one another it is possible that you will be directly told or overhear sensitive information.

As a recipient of information, you have a responsibility to make sure the confidentiality, privacy and anonymity of others is respected.

As a provider of information, you must declare confidential information as “confidential” to ensure that the sensitive nature of information is understood and acknowledged by the group.

We agree to the following:
  • not to tell anyone outside Synergize the facts of events shared with members in confidence
  • not to try and get more information about events shared by others
  • not to share information about the clients of others unless this has been directly permitted, requested or otherwise enabled by the collaborator.

The values and beliefs below are important to the organisation, and we strive to ensure those joining the hub and believers in the same principles outlined below.
