Our values

Our company values help us work toward our mission:

  • Respect – treating everyone with integrity and empathy
  • Accountability – taking responsibility for our actions and decisions
  • Imagination – being creative and inventive in our work
  • Courage – having the conviction to do the right thing
  • These values are reflected in the following areas:
