How You Will Be Successful:
Customer Obsession: We exist for our customers. We strive to partner with them, understand the impacts of the challenges they face, and earn their trust to solve them.
Love Problems, Not Solutions: We don’t get so fixated on a solution that we lose sight of the problem. The best solution wins - no matter the source.
Ownership: We honor and take ownership over commitments to each other. We are not self interested and refuse to say, “that isn’t my job.” We act on behalf of the entire company.
Details Matter: Paying attention to the little things leads to the ability to accomplish big things. We focus on ensuring we get the small things right. We leave things better than we found them.
Earn It Through Results: We achieve our goals by delivering results. We refuse to manage perceptions of results. We work to deliver them with quality in a timely fashion.
The Why Matters: Know why before taking action or investing time. We give context, set clear goals, and use independent judgment. We don’t do anything just because “someone said so” or “it felt right.”
Fail Fast: Speed matters in business. As a result, failure will happen. Do it small, do it quickly, understand it, and use it to learn from and grow.
Build Trust: We start by assuming good intentions. We depend on others, so we work deliberately to bring out the best in one another and build trust through visibility and transparency.
Challenge Ideas, Respect Decisions: We love to challenge our own thinking. When it’s time to move, we respect the decision, commit, and all pick up the oar and row together.
Think Big: We are comfortable being uncomfortable. We strive for thinking at levels that allow us to scale and make the biggest impact for our customers.
