The most valuable asset
Having become a recognized industry expert, having developed great and lasting relationships with partners and our clients – you, the ones who rely upon us to keep the fire on at home, we take great pride in our accomplishments.
Group Human Resources Director, MET Group
We have won praise on our performance and market understanding, and have even managed to grow MET (our company) from a local, Hungarian start up, to now operating in eight countries around Europe.
Human Capital is where the big money is
We measure success off of three factors: customer satisfaction, cash flow, and employee engagement. To be a good company requires having the business knowledge, plus energized people who drive the business goals and objectives. This may seem simple at first but in fact employee engagement is anchored in company culture, one we as a local, small business take great pride in. Our culture and business practice involve: Empowerment; trust; initiative; delegation; sustainability; and belief in the mission and shared goals. What all this means to our clients and partners is that they see a robust, adaptive, agile company that can withstand changing business parameters and influencers. By supporting our team of talent our organization becomes more resilient and quicker to deliver, more accurate and meets the expectations of the clients, partners, and the vision of MET.
The local factor – Making the best better
As a Hungarian origin company we recruit the most talented individuals from the different disciplines offered on the labor market. We provide a detailed program to present the necessary skillset to our team members that best ensures their success within the company. By providing knowledge, listening to feedback, we are able to continually adapt to our environment and provide new, cutting edge solutions to our business partners.
Where they learn not only the theoretical characteristics of the business but they learn the importance of practical thinking, reacting quickly and continually implementing change if and when it is needed, and under very little supervision. The outcome of that is that our talents return home to Hungary with more involvement, skills, and capabilities which then make them more valuable to our community, our state, and to us as a company. Many of our local leadership team members here in Hungary have taken the same road. After proving themselves abroad for a period of time they have returned back to Hungary to take on bigger roles and more responsibility.
Why it is important
We believe that to be the best, we must recruit and more importantly retain the best. Our goals for recruitment do not stop at the introduction program of entering the company, but rather help guide our employees through their lifespan within MET Group. By having a supportive, mentoring environment where new starters are given standards in which they must operate, it is also a chance for our company culture to nurture our young talent and letting them grow into the young experts and professionals who will be the future leaders in Hungary.
Company culture is not simply a buzzword to us, one that we have simply ticked the box on, but rather makes up who we are. We believe that the decisions and actions we take as a company affect not only our employees, but the surrounding communities as well.
The new kid on the block
MET is a relatively young company that has had to grow up fast. We started out as an idea, a belief and have been able to transfer the belief into tangible real business results. For us and our employees this is why we are striving to become better every day.
Experience comes from exposure and cognition. Warriors do not become great overnight by reading Sun Tzu or Miyamoto Musashi. They gain experience by being the people in the trenches fighting it out every day, understanding the situation, intent, and building knowledge. Knowledge that translates into anything these individuals should put their mind to. This thirst for development and openness is what drives each of our new employees, and keeps MET continuously on the path of improvement.
We take great pride in being a local company, one that has been able to go onto the world stage, take a punch, and return as champions. We believe in our clients more so than can be imagined- and our employees are just as important for us as our clients. They are the heart and spark of our company. They are the ones who are able to meet the business expectations of our clients beyond their prospects. This is no easy task but rather a recipe of belief + shared vision + intent + knowledge + risk that equals to a more energetic, experienced, adaptive company. The good news is we are always looking for the next Mark Zuckerberg. We are an innovative company of the energy sector that offers great perspective for the future if you are willing to learn and work hard.
