Core Values

1.  Uncompromising Ethics

Trust is built for a lifetime, but can be torn down in one inglorious act.  Therefore, we must adhere to the highest ethical standards whether dealing with customers, colleagues, subcontractors, suppliers, or the world at large.

Implications for action:

  • Always do what is right, even if no one else will know
  • Never seek to take what we haven’t earned
  • Don’t increase profits at the cost of our integri
  • Abide by the laws and regulations that we work under
  • Accurately account and bill for our costs

2.  Faithful Stewardship

We live in a world of limited resources, and must value and appreciate what we have.

Implications for action:

  • Use our wealth, time, and energy towards worthy pursuits
  • Use what we have to enhance the lives of others
  • Respect the environments we work in
  • Utilize safe work practices to protect the lives we’ve been given.

Accountability is fundamental to the health of our culture and growth as a business and is an individual and corporate responsibility.

4.  Humility

All that we accomplish as a company is through teamwork and our relationships, and for this to continue, we must not boast in our individual and corporate success.
