Competencies we look for before hiring

Fermenta screens employees across the following parameters:

  • 1.
  • Organizational core values:Fermenta’s five core values :
  • Discipline
  • Honest
  • Mutual Respect
  • Perseverance
  • Result Orientation

These five values are instrumental in strengthening our organizational culture, constituting an implicit code of conduct

  • 2.
  • Role Specific Behavioral and Functional Competencies: We have identified competencies of each role within the system. The hiring evaluation focuses on assessing these competencies in prospective candidates.

If our prospective employees are screened on these parameters, and found to match threshold expectations, the chances of them performing with increased happiness quotient increases. We believe that culture is about energy and happiness to leverage, sustain, and transform work into results; it is about making people feel good about how they contribute to the whole.
