Our Core Values


Character matters. You continuously strive to make your team(s) successful, sometimes at the expense of your own preferences or personal gain. You believe that every person and every voice matters.


Effort and results matter. You seek constant growth; you are tenacious in overcoming obstacles and are willing to shoulder more than your ''fair share'' without complaint.


People matter. You are able to get along with other humans; you show self-awareness in your interactions with others, you engage in healthy conflict, and you behave effectively in a wide range of scenarios.
