We will treat every internal customer as the most important customer. We will respond to staff needs and concerns in a timely, consistent and efficient manner. We will remain approachable as well as cooperative.
We strive to create a climate in which all parts of the organization can work closely together. We will accomplish this by encouraging and supporting the individual talents and contributions of each team member.
We believe that people make the difference and strive to provide opportunities for all employees to contribute ideas and to develop their potential and make the best use of their talents and abilities.
We challenge ourselves to be open-minded and creative and to realize that the ability to disagree helps to identify opinions and resolve differences constructively. We support reasonable risk taking.
