Purpose & principles

Company culture

If you can commit to and live with the following purpose and principles then you are the type of person that will be successful and help our company thrive. If you feel this level of engagement is not right for you or you are not willing or able to participate with us at this level we are not a good fit for you.
Our expectation is that you will take the steps necessary to do what you say you are going to do and be accountable for your actions, in other words live above the line.
We understand that not every person is ready for this level of performance and we appreciate the honesty of those who decide that this is not the right place for them. On the other hand you would make an ideal candidate to join our company if you are willing to commit to the following principles:

  • Accountability. See it, own it, solve it, do it.
    • Become part of the solution.
    • Respect for others and their feelings.
    • Act now.
    • Ask the question: what else can I do?
    • Ask the questions: What coaching do you have for me? What can I do better?
    • Personal ownership and pride.
    • Reject average.
    • Show others that you care.

A mindset of locking in value from the start

All projects are based on the principle of profit first. Only engage in activities that will keep the company’s profits healthy and always make decisions from a viewpoint of: is this growth for the sake of profit (as opposed to growth for the sake of growth or the look of it). Putting profit first is not inherently bad so long as it is based upon these core principles. The more profit we make will allow us more options to reward employees and offer the best service while making the impact we want to make.
