Core Values​

CARE

We’re all in this together. People are our greatest asset, both within and outside of our company. From customers to vendors, to our employees – people come first. We believe in relationships over everything. Be honest, be candid, be transparent. Acknowledge the good. This means we remember our values and our goals and act accordingly. We treat everyone with respect and celebrate each other as often as we can.

People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

-- Maya Angelou

OWN

We all have a responsibility to make the best decisions possible for the company. Whether we make big changes or small incremental adjustments, we treat every project we work on as our own. We do it well and we do it right. No task is too small and nothing is outside of our job description. Each team member gives the utmost care to every single task they do. We hold ourselves and our team accountable.

Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.​

-- Abraham Lincoln

SERVE

The way that we treat others is a direct reflection of ourselves. We treat everyone we meet with inherent respect and trust. We look for the good and give the benefit of the doubt. Learning from each other is an important part of our culture. Knowing who you were with and understanding each person’s individual needs is key. We lead with intelligence and integrity and strive to serve each other as well as our greater community. In everything we do, we do it better together.

Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.​

-- Albert Einstein

INNOVATE

We embrace the notion that everyone should have the freedom to explore and make mistakes along the way. There are no bad ideas. In an industry where everything moves at a rapid pace, we’re always striving for growth and innovation. We live for experimentation and we’re not afraid to be creative or a little bit unorthodox. While the path may twist and turn, knowing that we learn from each and every decision is enough to make it worthwhile.

Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.

-- Mahatma Gandhi
