  • HONESTY AND INTEGRITY

    Speak and live what is true for you, be yourself, keep your agreements and walk your talk.

  • OWN YOUR EXPERIENCE

    You have a choice in everything! Accept responsibility for your unique experience, be proactive - if you don't like your experience, change it.

    Reach for our highest potential as people and as an organization. Challenge the status quo, embrace change, increase productivity and eliminate waste. Encourage and reward risk taking and learn from our improvements and mistakes. Encourage and support people in learning and growing, so we can learn and grow as a company.
