Before getting into our values and culture, lets first define these two words and their importance on a company environment.
What are company values ?
Company values are also known as corporate values. This is important for the belief of any company and on what their behavior will be based on. These are guides for how the company will be managed internally and on its external relations with providers and customers.
What is company culture?
Culture is the personality of a company. It defines the environment in which the employees work. Company culture includes a variety of elements including the its environment, company mission, values, ethics, expectations, and goals.
“Maintaining an effective culture is so important that it, in fact, trumps even strategy.”-Howard Stevenson
