Venafi’s HEARTS Values

We live by a core set of values that are essential to our culture, and we encourage the members of our community to help us maintain that culture in the Venafi Warrior Community through these values. These values are called our HEARTS values, and they are woven into everything we do as a company, including our community. Let’s dig into these and how they relate to your participation in the community.

H- Honesty. Take the responsibility to be sincere and transparent in all actions and communications.

This is a professional community where we encourage our members to represent themselves authentically to get the most out of the collaborative nature of the community. What you can expect when you participate in the community is to have open, honest, and supportive discussions with a wide variety of Venafi customers, developers, partners, team members, and other Venafi enthusiasts.

E- Example (lead by). Treat other members of the community with respect and empathy.

Do not use threats, ethnic slurs, personal insults, or obscenity, or encourage anyone else to do so. Please do not engage in personal attacks or disparage any other participant in this community. It is OK to disagree, but be thoughtful and constructive in your discourse. Do not share your company’s confidential information or your own or anyone else’s personally identifiable information (in particular, do not “dox” anyone).

A- Awareness. The Venafi team and the members of our community work to have a situational understanding of both self and the environment that can only be discovered through listening, curiosity, and having empathy for others.

Before you post, please think about how it will be perceived. Also, please recognize that you are legally responsible for any content you post and that you may be subject to liability. If your posts are found defamatory, harassing, in violation of intellectual property rights or any applicable law, these Community Participation Guidelines, or InSided’s Terms of Use (our current community platform), Venafi reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to give warnings, remove or edit the post(s), and/or suspend or terminate membership from the community platform.

R- Risk Taking. The members of our community are excited to participate, share, and to work with peers to discover new, creative solutions to problems.

Embrace the community as an opportunity to share the great things you’ve been working on, to write about topics that you’re excited about, to practice your public speaking skills, and to use your expertise to help other community members be successful.

T- Team Before Self. We truly believe that our community members are an extension of our team. As individuals in the Venafi Warrior Community, we look out for each other and for the community as a whole.

We work together towards the common goal of helping drive the Venafi Warrior Community and the field of Machine Identity Management forward. We look to these HEARTS values to guide our actions to maintain a strong and successful Venafi Warrior Community.

S- Social Good. As Venafi Warriors, we care deeply about the world around us and actively support initiatives and programs that make the world a better place.

We encourage you to find and create opportunities to actively support social good as part of your efforts in the Venafi Warrior Community. We’ll be sharing different social good opportunities in the community and look forward to working together to make the world a better place.
