We are honest with all people in our organization and all people we come into contact with from outside the organization.
We are true to our word. We are respectful of others. We work to build trusting relationships.
We make every effort to be fair with people
and consistent in the application of our policies.
We align authority with responsibility. Where decision authority ultimately resides depends on who has responsibility to achieve results.
We expect decisions and actions to be consistent with our overall strategy and in concert with our values.
We recognize the vital importance of our outside partner relationships, which include our customers,
suppliers, advisors, alliance partners, and other outside stakeholders. It is in our long-term best interest that our partners are successful, just as it is in their interests that our company remains strong.
By sharing information, seeking input and collaborating together,
we create an exceptional entrepreneurial environment where people put ideas to work.
Always underlying our business decisions is the understanding that
growth without corresponding profit is not healthy.
We acknowledge the uniqueness of each person and the value that each brings to our organization.
We recognize individual and team efforts made toward answering our challenges and achieving our objectives. We take time to celebrate our successes.
We respect our environment and encourage efforts to
make the communities in which we operate better places for all who live in them.
