Pop quiz: name your company’s core values.
Can you do it?
If you’re like many of us, the answer is no.
It’s not that core value aren’t important. They’re an essential part of the cultural identity and success of any company, but far too often they’re paid lip service.
From making hiring decisions to determining how to handle a difficult customer, company core values can guide the decision making process in a variety of situations, but only if they’re codified and adhered to.
To help get you started in creating your own company core values, we’ve taken 10 value-sets from the best places to work in each of the markets we serve. Rather than define parameters or tell you how to create values specific to your company, here is a list from 70 of the best places to work in America to get your creative juices flowing.
Be an ambassador: We are proud to be problem solvers. We like the people we work with – coworkers, managers, clients – and genuinely enjoy helping one another succeed.
Enjoy the journey: We make sure our team feels appreciated and valued. Launch Lunches and quarterly show-and-tells are some of the ways we celebrate our people. We take the time to stop and acknowledge where we came from so that we don’t miss how impressive the climb is.
Get it done: Clients trust us to build things that work and we take that seriously. Our team will overcome obstacles, find solutions and deliver exceptional results.
Evolve and adapt: The people that work here are smart, and smart people know you can always get better. Mistakes are even ok as long as you learn something from them. We believe your time at Adage should make you better.
Do the right thing: What do you do when no one else is looking? Our teams act with integrity and honesty, and focus on putting ourselves in the shoes of others.
Play for each other: Above all, we're a team. That means we show up for each other, act with empathy, and bring our authentic selves to work every day. We're growing this company not for own personal gain, but for each other
Build for durability: We want to create something worth creating, that will endure the test of time. We do this by relentlessly focusing on our customers' success, building high quality systems, and planning for long-term scale. We're grounded by humility and driven by ambition.
Make something better, today: We're hungry, we're passionate, and we love tough problems and new challenges. You don't hear a lot of "I don't know how" or "I can't" at Amperity. When faced with a hurdle, we jump.
Create wildly successful customers by doing whatever it takes to enable our champions to be transformational leaders and their staff to be superstars.
Deliver outstanding results by establishing a culture of exceptional execution and rewarding those who create great outcomes.
Continuously improve by viewing the business from a “Glass Half Empty” perspective to intensely focus us on how we can operate more effectively.
Develop our people by providing an environment that fosters personal development and professional growth.
Operate with transparency by communicating internally and externally with unwavering candor, honesty and respect.
Are accountable by measuring ourselves against the highest standards of integrity and fiscal responsibility.
Transparency: We pride ourselves on providing complete visibility into the successes, and sometimes failures, of our business as we grow and scale. It is an integral part of our culture as we collaborate and work towards a common goal across functions.
Control: Control and ownership over individual business impacting projects empowers our employees to think critically and contribute to the development of Beeswax as an industry challenging platform.
Flexibility: We empower our employees in a work environment that is conducive to creating the optimal work/life balance.
Customers first: Our company exists to help merchants sell more. We make every decision and measure every outcome based on how well it serves our customers.
Team on a mission: BigCommerce is made up of amazing individuals, but it’s only through teamwork that we achieve greatness. We’re committed to helping our customers by working together with equal parts humility and ambition
Think big: Being the world's leading commerce platform requires unrivalled vision, innovation and execution. We never settle — in everything we do, we challenge our ideas of what’s possible in order to better meet the needs of our customers.
Act with integrity: We’re honest, transparent and committed to doing what’s best for our customers and our company. We openly collaborate in pursuit of the truth. We have no tolerance for politics, hidden agendas or passive-aggressive behavior.
Make a difference every day: We constantly push ourselves to be our best, we focus on solutions, and we arrive every day inspired to make an impact through our talents, passion and hard work.
We break down barriers: We have only one rule: use good judgment. We hire incredible people so we don’t have to institute cumbersome rules or processes. We want you to be free to think, create and get things done on your own terms.
We have lives: We love positive energy in the office. In fact, we need it—happy people are more efficient and creative. So if 6 PM improv classes or midday gym sessions are what makes you happy, we will support you.
We take the long view: When you join us, you’re stuck with us. We hired you for you, not just for this job. We know the best people move up and often go on to start their own companies. We want to help you get where you want to go.
Put Team First: With empathy and humility, we seek win-for-all solutions.
Own it: We hold ourselves accountable for outcomes, good and bad. We don’t pass the buck.
Be Admirable: Honoring our word and choosing candor, respect, and kindness.
Wonder: Seeking to understand with curiosity and vulnerability.
Find A Better Way: A culture of innovation and continuous improvement. Constantly seeking personal and professional growth.
Give Joy: Laugh. Be grateful, positive and hospitable. Make people feel good.
Be Bold: Take action - just go. A champion of being bold doesn’t shy away from competition that seems insurmountable or opportunities that feel impossible. They think outside the box; write new stories. They feel empowered to make decisions and take action. Stop wondering “wouldn’t it be cool if...” and start living it. When this person is unsure about the next step to take, he or she starts with what they know and creates the path one step at a time, building confidence and momentum. Inaction is the enemy of innovation.
Build Relationships / Deliver Results: Connect with customers, partners, consumers and each other to drive success. Relationships deliver results because we can’t do our jobs without each other. When a person goes above and beyond in this area, they own their impact on our business and our partners’ success. They dive deep to understand how and why our industry and our customers tick. We’re all about providing great service - to consumers, to customers, to our communities and to each other. A true champion of this mindset takes pride in knowing that we’re making a real difference by working together.
Challenge and Collaborate: To truly live this value, you welcome hard conversations and don’t make assumptions - ask and answer questions. Rely on each other to find solutions. Your teams should be your toughest critics, your biggest challengers and your loudest supporters.
Focus On the Outcome: When you do that, the journey will map itself out. And it may be different every time. For someone that’s outcome-focused, he or she doesn’t do something a certain way because “this is how we’ve always done it.” They embrace learning curves; innovate, iterate, err, improve, repeat.
Start With the Consumer: The consumer is our top priority. And every day we’re hyper-focused on making them love car ownership. Someone who embraces this value makes every decision, no matter how big or small, with the consumer top of mind. They put themselves in the consumers’ shoes and make their experience better.
Stay Open: Our individual differences strengthen our teams, and the trust and respect we have for each other infuses passion into everything we do. Some who is sincerely open considers alternatives, looks at things through a different lens. Opening our minds and combining our different backgrounds, experiences, world views and expertise make us savvier problem solvers and drive better results.
