  • Communicate openly & often
  • Improve someone's life

Team Guidelines

  • Respect

    We will treat every person with dignity and courtesy. We will look for ways to encourage and praise others for their accomplishments. We will never criticize or complain about a fellow employee unless the complaint is expressed to the employee's supervisor or, if appropriate, we will do so directly to the employee affected, in private.

  • Integrity

    We will do what we say we will do. We will be honest in all our dealings.

  • Attitude

    We will practice a positive and helpful attitude. We will project a smile in our voice and on our face. We will never possess an "air" or attitude of superiority over our customers or fellow employees.

  • Teamwork

    We believe our success depends on the involvement of everyone. We must strive to be the strongest member of the team that we can possibly be. We must help those who aren't as experienced or knowledgeable. All employees are expected, whenever possible, to assist other areas in need of assistance. Once a decision is made, we draw together and support it regardless of our personal opinion.

  • Communication

    We will be good communicators. No idea, thought, information, or concept is of value until it is shared with those who need to know. We may disagree with one another on issues and how to solve problems but we will do so constructively. We will listen more than we talk.

  • Quality

    Quality is a sense of pride of ownership in one's work. We will exceed our customers’ expectations. We will be timely in responding to our customers’ needs. We will be friendly, helpful and courteous. We will provide error-free service. We will have a thorough understanding of our products. Internally, we will provide each other the same level of service we provide our customers.

  • Confidentiality

    Without exception, we will keep customer personal and financial information confidential. We will not share this information internally unless it is necessary.

  • Performance

    We accept the responsibility of giving our company and co-workers our best possible efforts each and every day. We make and achieve goals. We will become the very best at what we do.

  • Neatness & Cleanliness

    We will keep our facilities and work areas clean and orderly. Personal safety, productivity and our customer's perception are directly affected by our personal cleanliness and the orderliness of our facilities and work areas.

  • Innovation

    We will strive to find a better way of doing everything we do. We know that change is vital to our survival.

  • Timeliness

    We will be on time for deadlines, promises, meetings, appointments, reports, projects, whatever. It demonstrates respect and self discipline.
