Our values are at the core of our culture, and they can be summed up by the acronym MER, which means more in Norwegian. These values are our commitment to our employees and our customers.

  • Moro [‘mo(·)ro]

  • Respekt [re’spekt]
    Norwegian for “Respect.” We believe it matters how a company or an individual becomes number one. Striving to be the best doesn’t mean sharp elbows: we should all treat our colleagues and customers with respect and humility.

  • MER
    An acronym for Moro, Enere and Respekt, which creates the Norwegian word “More.” We celebrate our victories without losing our drive to improve — whether in reaching personal goals or corporate milestones. Though simple on the surface, our values guide us in everything we do, from how we prioritize our objectives and make decisions to how we clarify expectations and measure our success.
