Cost is not a question for numbers, but a question of value. It is not what we can cut out, but what we can save on. We are lean because we know that success does not depend on the number of people, but on the number of ideas, and the brilliance of those ideas. We are not cost conscious to increase our profit margins, but to guarantee that we have sufficient resources for tomorrow. It is not just the cost to us that we must concern ourselves with, but that cost to our customers as well.
Synergy is one of a corporation's greatest assets. The solitary genius is nice, but teams are stronger. We have common goal, we need each other to get there. We have each other's back. We have the Company's back.
We need to be trustworthy, and we need to be trusted. There must be integrity and reliability in our word, and our character. Honesty necessitates dependability, fairness, probity, and holding on to high principles. It is the only way we can believe in each other and our customer can believe in us.
Everyday, we step into the battlefield knowing we are well equipped. We are a crack team. Better trained. Better skilled. Better motivated. The competition is there for two reasons: to learn from and to knock out. We owe it to ourselves to keep building muscle, and we owe it to our customers to keep fighting.
Our future is wrapped up in our customers – along with their dreams, their hopes, their lives. We must become part of their community – and their family. What they need is as important as what we do. It is what drives what we do. To them, we will always listen. From them, we will always learn. They are the reason we exist.
