Our values drive our organization and motivate us as a team. They are the guiding principles we live by everyday. Because our founders are veterans and active military personnel, you will find great similarity with our values and those of our armed forces.
Treat others with dignity and respect while expecting others to do the same. Respect is what allows us to appreciate the best in other people. Respect is trusting that all people have done their jobs and fulfilled their duty. And self-respect is just as important, knowing you have put forth your best effort. We are all one team and each of us has something special to contribute.
Do what is right, both ethically and morally. Integrity is a quality you develop by adhering to moral principles. It requires that you say and do nothing that deceives others. As your integrity grows, so does the trust others place in you. The more choices you make based on integrity, the more this highly prized value will affect your relationships with family and friends, and, finally, the fundamental acceptance of yourself.
Fulfill your obligations. Doing your duty means more than carrying out your assigned tasks. Duty means being able to accomplish tasks as part of a team. We all have assigned tasks and responsibilities, and we continue to learn and grow through our experiences. Resist the temptation to take "shortcuts" that might undermine the integrity of the final product.
Put the welfare of others before your own. Selfless service is larger than just one person. In serving your company and its customers, you are doing your duty loyally without thought of recognition or gain. The basic building block of selfless service is the commitment of each team member to go a little further, endure a little longer, and look a little closer to see how he or she can add to the effort.
Be humble and modest, not arrogant. Be teachable and be coachable and learn from others and your experiences. We all have important roles to play. Recognize that ideas can come from other people, have a willingness to change your mind, be able to admit your mistakes when you make them, and be willing to learn from the mistakes of others, rather than punishing them.
Bear true faith and allegiance to your team. Believe in yourself and devote yourself to the mission of the company. A loyal team member is one who supports the leadership and stands up for fellow teammates. Express your loyalty in your actions, and show your loyalty to your team.
Live up to our values. Make honor a matter of your daily living. Develop the habit of being honorable and solidify that habit with every choice you make. Honor is matter of carrying out, acting, and living the values of the organization.
Be brave about pursuing options that are risky, novel, or untried. Do not be afraid to try new things and explore new ways of doing things. Be innovate in your approach. Be interested in new ways of doing things, unusual approaches, or things that are outside your area of expertise. Constantly be learning.
Thank you to all who serve our country, and thank you to our country for providing such great core values for an organization.
