Having a good reputation is paramount, and it stems from strength of character.
There is a proverb that says, “When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, everything is lost.” We believe that our character is evidenced by our attitudes and is demonstrated by our actions.
We advocate that each of our employees emulate the following values, and we expect that these values will shape our relationships and guide our work ethic.
We want to be people that habitually tell the truth—to ourselves and to others. We desire straight talk and accurate judgments. To be truthful is to be genuine, sincere, and transparent. We believe that truth is the foundation for trust and is something that inspires loyalty.

We endeavor to be fair and just in all our dealings. We believe that there is right and wrong and that it is imperative that we adhere to moral and ethical principles. Exhibiting honest, upright behavior contributes to being reliable and dependable.
