Who We Are

Our commonFont Values

Spirit of Service

We think about the common or collective good. We demonstrate empathy, which includes stepping into others’ shoes to consider how they experience circumstances and anticipating needs before realized. 

Continuous Learning & Improvement 

We believe that talents are not fixed, but developed over time through hard work, good strategies, and input from others. We are introspective, open to change, and resilient when we hit stumbling blocks.  

Problem Solving with Grit

We apply good judgment and calibrate based on feedback, enabling us to solve problems with curiosity and creativity. We overcome obstacles because we are scrappy and tenacious.

Ownership

We care about outcomes. Ownership grows over time, as a reflection of individuals applying their initiative, knowledge, and talent to solve problems.
