Our Core Values
We each put the interests of the poor, our partners and clients before our own and in every interaction, we seek to give more than we take. We understand that it is a privilege – not a sacrifice – to serve a cause bigger than ourselves. We work hard to make the most of this privilege.
We act as owners of ADRES. We don’t complain. If something is broken or flawed in our organization, we proactively fix it. We each are responsible for helping ADRES continually innovate, strategize, evaluate, learn, and improve.
We bring to bear the skill and effort needed to produce work of the absolute highest quality. We work hard and efficiently. Our work is judged by our outputs, not our effort. We are conscientious and respectful in what we say and do. If we disagree with a teammate, we have an obligation to state our views.
At ADRES, a partnership perspective always guides our relationships internally and externally with clients. We take a long-term view in our interaction with clients. We strive to build bonds founded on respect, honesty, integrity and mutual support.
We are honest with our clients and with each other. We always share our objective findings and honest opinions with the client – even if they are unpopular. We readily share when ADRES Consulting Group is not the appropriate service-provider for a given context.
Making a difference
We are dedicated to making a contribution to equitable and sustainable development in Africa through the independent perspective we provide.
