2
SET HIGH STANDARDS

At Mandara, we set the highest standards of performance
– every single employee must have the desire to achieve excellence in their role.

We employ a robust set of quantitative and qualitative benchmarks to ensure that we operate at the highest level.

3
A SCIENTIFIC APPROACH

Everything, however effective, can always be improved. Which is why we constantly discover better ways of working, challenge the status quo, and fix things before they break.

To achieve this, we apply scientific rigour to all that we do. We hypothesise, test, measure and learn. We create our own conventions.
