We work hard, but it’s a relaxed atmosphere.
People actually get along with each other, and not in an ‘Office’ kind of way.
The people are one of the main reasons this business has been successful, along
with the fact that we’ve managed to free up our minds to concentrate on our clients.
To achieve this, we developed our own operating system that takes a myriad of small tasks off our hands, minimises human error by imposing a series of checks and balances, making everything as easy and efficient as possible.
We pride ourselves on our customer service, and constantly survey our clients
to ensure we’re living up to our own exacting standards.
We’ve also created a core set of values to help guide us, and underlying everything
of course, is our passion for cars. Even our internal awards are vehicle related.
Le Mans Award and the Autopian of the Year
In 1923, the Automobile Club of the Sarthe decided to organise a race that would test around the clock endurance. Originally called the Grand Prix of Endurance, the most prestigious car manufacturers in the world have vied for a win ever since. Held annually at Circuit de la Sarthe in France, it's now called The 24 Hours of Le Mans, and it's the world's most famous sports car endurance race.
To win requires a supreme individual feat, combined with the support of a great team. The monthly Autopia Le Mans Award embodies the spirit of this legendary race. It's a peer nominated award that recognises not only outstanding results, but also the manner in which they were achieved.
The Autopian of the Year award goes to the individual who has consistently overachieved. It's a management decision, and goes to the team member who best represents our core values.
Current holder of the title - Maree Dobbs.
We act with integrity
We treat others the way that we would like to be treated. This means that we will always do what we say we will do, even if it is uncomfortable for us. Fairness, honesty and integrity are at the heart of everything we do.
We think long term
We aim to establish enduring relationships with our customers, suppliers and partners.
We are different by design
It should be obvious to everyone that comes into contact with Autopia that we are different from other businesses. We aren't different for difference sake, but due to well thought out and innovative approaches in everything we do. We will always continue to break the status quo.
We go the extra mile
We aim to exceed expectations in everything that we do, not by setting them low but by going beyond what is expected. We aim for this not just for our customers, but in everything we do for Autopia.
We are all CEOs
We all behave like we are the CEO of Autopia. We foster entrepreneurship by encouraging and recognising everyone's contribution. We are empowered to make our own decisions and are accountable for the results.
We give back
We actively contribute to minimising the impact we and our customers have on our environment. We promote environmentally responsible solutions. We contribute toward the needs of those less fortunate and provide company time to help others.
