Our Core Values

Customer Happiness : We need to do everything we can to make our customers happy. Often times, these are the little things that goes unnoticed which makes big differences.

Be Open and Transparent : The more open we are with our business, the more we can earn trust and credibility. This is true here at Prenetics as well, you can be rest assured that senior management is to be very open and transparent.

Adapt To & Embrace & Drive CHANGE : Change may sometimes be unsettling, especially if it is unwanted or unexpected, yet, it is the only constant, where we must evolve as our customers expect more and as our competitive landscape becomes more demanding.

Walk the Talk : If you say you will do something, you better make sure you complete your task by the date it needs to get completed. No BS here, no excuses and everyone has a responsibility to do their part.

TEAMWORK : The best leaders are the ones that listen and at Prenetics here, our management understands from and crafts by listening to our team members to enable them to do their best.

Be PROACTIVE : Being proactive is taking initiative in a situation. Being the first to step up and say, hey “i can do this”. Being proactive is becoming the emergent leader in a group. Proactive people are positive thinkers.

Be Passionate & Determined : Passion. Period. Sure we can do a job—anyone or any organization can just get the job done. But to get the job done exceptionally well? That takes passion.

Be Humble : Arrogance is self-destructive in the long run and though we take pride in our roles and results, we at Prenetics here, always live by that “we are only as good as our last month”.

Move Fast : Moving fast is one of a startup’s greatest abilities. If you believe in something, get on it and get it done. Don’t overthink it, and just move.

Do Epic Shit : Building great and big things means taking risks. This can be often times scary and prevents companies from doing the big things they should be. However, in our world where things are moving so fast, we are guaranteed to fail if we don’t take risks.

We are Prenetics, our people make us who we are.
