> Professional

Professionalism is about conveying expertise, mastering one’s profession and being committed to quality work performance. It also involves demonstrating inter-personal skills, respect for clients, colleagues, suppliers, equipment and procedures. Professionals set a good example and work well in teams.

Professionalism is the result of competence, commitment, accountability and service. This value is in the hearts and the minds of all BOURBON Teams - seafarers and office staff alike.

> Responsible

Responsibility is about being self-reliant and capable of making decisions in one’s field, as well as sharing and explaining those decisions. It also means taking responsibility for one's actions. At BOURBON, responsibility goes hand in hand with transparency in relation to clients, superiors and colleagues. Responsibility also entails upholding the brand and company reputation at all times.

Responsibility means that people understand their job, they are knowledgeable, they are able to act, they are able to think creatively and innovatively.

> Enthusiastic

Enthusiasm is about having and demonstrating passion for one’s profession. It encompasses the desire to share this passion and encouraging company stakeholders (clients, colleagues, co-workers, suppliers, potential candidates and market players...) to participate as well. At BOURBON, enthusiasm is reflected by our commitment to contribution and involvement. Unbridled enthusiasm becomes contagious and spreads to others in contact with BOURBON - that is what makes us unique.

Enthusiasm is a driving force, and without it, we would not be able to meet the targets.

> United

Solidarity is about acknowledging, respecting, supporting and assisting company stakeholders (clients, colleagues, co-workers, suppliers...). It’s about being a team player, contributing to growth, sharing one's knowledge, expertise and best practices. It also entails being exemplary... Solidarity is a cornerstone value amongst seafarers.

BOURBON represents so many different cultures, so many different ways of thinking... but everybody is so united at the same time!
