OVH: freedom of innovation, passionate teams

 

Octave Klaba

OVH is a really human place, in that each employee is essential in providing the best possible quality of service. It sounds paradoxical in a company that manages so many infrastructures, machines and services, but it’s true: people are at the core of what we do.

Trust and integrity

Trust is an important value at OVH – it brings us together. A united front is the key to better serving our customers and partners that are affiliated with OVH. Trust means turning actions into commitments, and working in harmony. It means making use of all of this energy to develop strong relationships based on trust with our employees, customers, suppliers and shareholders.

 

Team spirit

We are better together. OVH is a team in which the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Cohesion, trust, integration and respect for each individual’s talents allow us to achieve common goals. Team spirit inspires everything that we do. Our richness comes from exchanging ideas in an atmosphere that feels human, diverse and stimulating. We share our knowledge and experience every day. Just like the internet, our work is all about participation and collaboration. Our collective strength comes from individual fulfilment.

 

Passion

Passion is something all OVH employees have in common. Passion for new technologies... for the digital world... Passion for creating and producing high-quality services for everyone involved with the company – not least, of course, our customers.

Passion is what drives us to develop new skills, strive for excellence and push the boundaries.

 

Innovation and disruption

OVH's instinct to think ahead and challenge itself is what sets the company apart from its competitors and keeps it one step ahead in the market. Disruptive innovation is deeply ingrained in our history and current practices. Pragmatic and determined, our teams tirelessly optimise and invent in every single area of their work. But this constant innovation isn’t just about technology – it applies to everything we do throughout the company, to make complex things more simple. Everyone has the opportunity and the means to bring new ideas to the table.

 

Responsibility

We assume our responsibilities together. It is behind all of our actions and encourages everyone who works at OVH to fully assume responsibility in their own work, and to help the company protect our customer’s data by behaving ethically. Responsibility allows us to combine ambition and realism, gives us room for error, commands exemplary behaviour and guides us in our decisions and in fulfilling our commitments for a more sustainable IT infrastructure.
