OUR CORE VALUES
We are - and always will be - honest and open, with our team members and our customers.
Everything we do is with our customers in mind. We listen (and call on) our customers and learn how to be better. We only offer new products and services if our customers find value in it.
We all succeed by fostering trust with colleagues, customers, and partners. We fundamentally believe that doing what is right is more important than being right.
We go out of our way to make others successful, and we believe this is the key to our success.
MAKE OTHERS SUCCESSFUL
What's fair? What's the right thing? We all have to use our best judgment, and everyone's judgment varies, but a good rule of thumb is "what would you do for a friend or a neighbor if they asked for help?" An example might be taking a returned product even if it's a little outside our return guidelines. Or being someone who says 'Sure we can do that for you' when a customer expected you to say 'sorry, we can't.' If the request is reasonable, grant it. However, saying no is sometimes the right thing! If that’s the case, don’t feel badly about it.
BE FAIR & DO THE RIGHT THING
Moving fast enables us to do more things and learn faster. We’re less afraid of making mistakes than we are of losing opportunities by moving too slowly. We are a culture of providers and doers; the power is in your hands.
Our team is our most important asset. We expect our team members to act as an owner in every decision they make, no matter how big or small.
ACT LIKE AN OWNER
Our team focuses on the key inputs for our customers’ business and delivers them with the right quality and in a timely fashion, which in turn drives our company’s results. Despite setbacks, our team rises to the occasion and never settles.
