We value our employees above all else and will not compromise on maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for them. We expect everyone to actively participate and take responsibility for their own safety and the safety of those around them. Employees can report safety concerns without fear of reprisal and are empowered to stop work if an operation presents significant risk or danger. We continuously evaluate and improve our operations to understand and mitigate risk.
Integrity is at the heart of who we are and what we do. We are each personally accountable for the highest standards of ethics and integrity. We will fulfill our commitments as responsible citizens and employees. We will consistently treat customers, suppliers and company resources with the respect they deserve. We are committed to being honest and fair with our customers, our employees, our stockholders and each other. We will be truthful, trustworthy and honorable in all aspects of our work. We will always do the right thing even when it may be difficult.
We are committed to fostering an engaged workforce. Our employees are very involved in what they do and take ownership of their work and work processes. Engagement is a heightened level of ownership where employees want to do whatever they can for the benefit of their internal and external customers and for the success of the organization as a whole.
We hold ourselves to a very high standard of performance. We are committed to improving our company performance while upholding our strong values. We always perform in a way that is aligned with our values and procedures, because meeting a performance goal is never justification for unethical behavior. Superior performance and quality ensure future trust and confidence in our products and services. We promote continuous improvement, innovation and creativity.
We value people, knowing we must show fairness and equal treatment for all. We will continuously build a collaborative culture of inclusion where treating each other with empathy, dignity and compassion is the expected behavior. We do this by actively listening to all perspectives and treating everyone in a courteous and professional manner.
We seek and accept personal responsibility for our actions and results. We keep promises and commitments made to others. We are responsible for ensuring quality is a component of everything we do. We take pride in providing outstanding customer service.
