A COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE
We are committed to getting the job done right the first time, in as effective and efficient a manner as possible and in accordance with our overall mission.
To accomplish this: we will work collaboratively across functions to achieve our common goals; we will make every effort to deliver, on time and within our business plans and guidelines, the commitments that we make to each other and to each customer; we will empower all employees by promoting personal responsibility and accountability along with creative thinking, innovation and informed risk-taking in all our activities; we will welcome change and seek to marry improvements in process and product to the traditions that have served us well for many years; and we will aspire at all times to do our jobs better in every dimension.
A COMMITMENT TO BEING CUSTOMER-CENTRIC
We will be leaders in our field in our effort to maximize returns to all of our internal and external customers. We will achieve leadership in our field: by meeting customer expectations; by being proactive, innovative and flexible in creating products and processes and in resolving problems; by being mindful of the many, sometimes contradictory, demands and expectations of our different customers; and by engaging in fair and honest business practices.
A COMMITMENT TO TREATING OTHERS WITH RESPECT, TRUST AND DIGNITY
We will create a respectful and meaningful workplace, characterized by honest, direct and relevant communication. We are committed to communicating definable and measurable goals. We will act with integrity and engender trust in both colleagues and customers. We will honor diversity, individuality and personal and professional differences. We are committed to conducting our business with the highest professional and ethical standards and to treating all resources entrusted to us as if they were our own.
A COMMITMENT TO EMPLOYEE GROWTH AND WELL-BEING
We are committed to an environment characterized by continuous learning, an entrepreneurial, can-do spirit and a team orientation. In addition, we are committed to an environment that is willing to allow for a healthy balance between our professional and personal lives. This commitment will enable us to attract and retain the best-qualified people and create a workplace of which we can be proud and where we can enjoy our work, always while seeking to carry out our mission.
