Company Values

  • Caring: We care about each other.
  • Adhocracy: An adhocracy is intentionally ‘adhoc’ instead of bureaucratic. Adhocracies value the ability to adapt quickly, flexibility and employee empowerment (with an emphasis on individual initiative). Corporate levels exist in an adhocracy, but they are less strictly defined and valued than in traditional corporate environments.
  • Trusting: We trust one another with information
  • Sincere: We do what we say and say what we mean.
  • Devoted: We love pets.
  • Original: We are innovative and fair.
  • Genuine: We are free to express our true selves.
  • Simple: Simple is better.
