Ambition and Fundamentals

 

Ethical, Independent and objective: Schofield & Partners integrates social, environmental and economic roles into the company. This includes the well-being of employees, their health, the ecological footprint of the company through a consideration for the environment and respect for the balance of interests. We integrate the philosophy of "act local, think global" (Rene Dubos).

  • Be open and transparent in your dealings 
    Share the full facts with your clients, making things as plain and intelligible as possible.
     
  • Be accountable for all your actions

  • Know and act within your limitations 
    Be aware of the limits of your competence and don't be tempted to work beyond these limits.

    Remember that both your public and private behaviour could affect your own reputation and other RICS members' reputations.
     
  • Have the courage to make a stand

Corporate Social responsibility

 

Because we believe that human rights are the foundations of a society that guarantees equality, freedom and dignity of every human being, Schofield & Partners plays a role in bringing a small stone to the building, to contribute to their achievement.

 

Since 2007, our actions are divided primarily to support:

 

  1. The Kids First and support SVAMV = Swiss Federation of single parent families.  Helps to protect children who are especially vulnerable and discriminated against. SVAMV committed to protecting the rights of the child because the families are particularly vulnerable www.famillemonoparentale.ch
     
  2. Make A Wish Foundation is committed to changing the lives of children living with serious illness by fulfilling dreams that allow them to redouble their courage, strength and energy. Often, having realised their wish, they are more determined than ever to overcome their disease.
    Schofield & Partners sponsored the World Wish Day April 29, 2010 and realizes the wishes of several children. www.make-a-wish.ch
