Arineo values

Our values

Our values define us. They show us who we are and, also, the direction in which we would like to develop. They are meant to remind us of these goals and to guide us in everyday life. They also give others an impression of who we are and what is important to us. We have collated, discussed, and developed these values together with all of our colleagues.

Fifteen values are relatively high - nevertheless, we have decided against an artificial restriction because the sum of the values reflects our diversity.

Cooperative leadership

We are also breaking new ground internally: we work in a highly complex individual market with fast decisions, self-organized, and in variable teams - our organization must fit this. That is why we want to move away from a "power hierarchy" to an organization with "cooperative leadership".

In essence, it is about leadership rather than leaders. Management duties remain: people coordinate tasks, develop strategies, support colleagues, and provide feedback.


The most successful project decisions are made by people in the project. Therefore, wherever possible, at Arineo decisions are also made where the knowledge is greatest, instead of passing it "upwards" through a hierarchy. This way we are more flexible and quicker.

For us, cooperative leadership is the next level of employee orientation: more participation and fewer obstacles in everyday work. We want to enable co-determination, contribute our skills, and use our individual strengths. We are, thus, also competitively well-positioned: robust, efficient, and innovative.
