Q: What are your core principles?
A: We Exceed Expectations
We LISTEN … to our Customers and to our Talent. Regents believes that by LISTENING, Learning and then Solutioning – real Value can be realized. Every consultative opportunity starts with establishing a deep foundation of Understanding prior to defining the work effort. Regents brings a structured approach to analyze, design, construct, improve, and deploy industry leading solutions for your organization. Regents commits to cautious counsel as it relates to your fiscal and resource investment as we guide you to the solution that delivers your expected outcome.
Every successful engagement creates a complex composition of orchestrated tasks, employing the talent of its individual players to execute to a plan. Our clients expect knowledgeable resources, clear methodology, decisive action, thorough planning and great communication. Our consultants seek to discover, own, and solve business issues in ways that surprise and delight, providing unexpected results that exceed the requirements of discovery and implementation.
The consultants who become a part of the Regents team all have demonstrated skills and abilities accumulated through years of professional experience. Our management approach promotes self-accountability, self-responsibility and self-motivation for resources who know how to be decisive, make recommendations, and take action. This is empowerment.
Regents consultants commit the energy and time needed to ensure that client’s resources are similarly empowered; that they have the knowledge and clarity of purpose to achieve their goals and those of their company.
Organizing timely, quality communication is the context in which we empower our resources to have the freedom to act, to use their talent effectively and without unwarranted constraints.
Regents culture and methodology creates a highly energized, positive work environment where exceptional people feel exceptional about themselves and their contributions to the organization.
Regents work processes and methodology are designed to create a fun and energized work environment that supports creativity, productivity and high engagement – both for our customers and our talent. We believe that Engaged people are Energized – Energized people have fun, love what they do and ways to continually add value.
Regents believes that Listening to Understand before Solutioning applies to both our clients and our talent. Our years of experience proves that listening to the diverse blend of opinions and backgrounds of our clients and talent from around the globe provides superior solutions.
Understanding a situation from many points of view and incorporating the natural diversity of opinion, experience and perception found in client and consulting teams is a core value for Regents. Some organizations consider this collaboration. Regents believes that empathizing takes collaboration to a higher level.
As an organization we are in a steady state of continuous learning that ensures that we are constantly evolving. We believe that our ability to build our knowledge base, stay current with industry trends and technology adds value to both our customers and talent.
We learn by taking managed risks, not repeating mistakes, and by pushing ourselves forward with new ideas and innovative problem-solving approaches. We make ourselves stronger and more valuable each day by evolving as an organization and as individuals.
