Building blocks of our culture
Our culture is as unique as our people. Here are the most important building blocks of our culture.
Diversity & Equality
Equality and inclusion are very important values to our people. We have formed an Equality and Non-Discrimination Team, which consists of people from diverse backgrounds who regularly meet to discuss and plan actions to support these values in our culture.
Trust & Respect
We trust and respect each other. We take our customers’ challenges as our own and even when it's hard, we commit to finding the solutions.
We are driven by growth; personally and as a professional community. The end result of this is a growing business and Houston Inc.
It's not only work that matters. Every day in our life is precious and should be spent with tasks and people who inspire us. We know how to have fun, too.

- Help from other Houstonians
Our everyday interactions are always based on our values: empathy, professionalism, trust and respect. This is what Houstonians have to say about them:
Empathy is one of the key elements in helping teams grow and build trust. We also need empathy to build trust with the client and to understand how we can best help the users to solve their problems.
Being a trustworthy and professional partner for our clients is at the core of everything we do. Skills, good judgment, and polite behavior are expected from all Houstonians.
We usually work in teams and having a good, solid team whose members trust one another gives strength to solve all the troubles that come along. There is no real respect without trust. We believe we all do the best choices we can under any given circumstances.
There's always a story behind everyone and everything. Being respectful towards the solutions and the people behind them does not take anything away from you, but it’s a great help in building understanding and trust.
