Our culture is guided by our mission and rooted in our core values. Our mission is to improve people's lives through innovation, starting with retail by transforming how people shop and how retailers operate.

Alert Innovation has four core values:

  1. The Golden Rule- Extraordinarily powerful in its simplicity and depth: “Treat others as you would want to be treated." It demands both empathy and fairness, qualities which are fundamental to harmonious human relationships and form the bedrock of ethical behavior.
  2. The Power of Person- The contribution of every single person in a company is important, and the performance of the entire company can only be maximized when every person strives to achieve his/her full potential and to contribute to the best of his/her ability
  3. The Power of Team- The Power of Person becomes amplified exponentially when a group of people working effectively as a team create “performance synergy”, whereby the capacity to perform as a team is much greater than the sum of the individual members’ capacities
  4. The Power of Truth- We strive to see the world as it is, not as we want or imagine it to be, because only then can we make it better. This core value manifests itself through questioning, probing, testing, measuring, validating, verifying, proving, listening with an open mind, and making fact-based decisions. It also fosters transparency and honesty with others, as well as self-examination and self-honesty.
