Our Core Values:
Saying what we mean and consistently doing what we say. It means honestly matching words and feelings with thoughts and actions, with no desire other than for the good of the community.
Quality as defined by the customer. We exemplify responsiveness in our willingness to help customers and to provide prompt service in a dependable and accurate manner.
The process of effectively and profitably taking new ideas to satisfied customer. It is a process of continual renewal involving the whole organization and is an essential part of everyday practice.
The excitement of doing something – vocation or avocation, art or mission, idea or ideal that we find fulfilling and deeply satisfying. People with passion ignite enthusiasm, inspire excellence and invoke enhanced performance.
There are more leaders, because people can take turns assuming leadership for tasks where they have knowledge and ability. Leaders inspire and facilitate rather than just give orders that have to be obeyed. Our partnerships also extend to the community where accountability also flows in two directions.
