Embrace change and new ideas
Finding better ways to do things and sometimes doing things that haven’t been done before keeps us challenged, inspired and relevant.
Learn and grow
We encourage learning and create opportunities for people to grow and succeed for the benefit of our community.
We work hard to achieve great outcomes and we like how it feels when people stop to say, 'great job!' So we strive for excellence and celebrate our success.
Communication is key
We communicate in a respectful, transparent and inclusive manner. Being open and honest in our communications allows us to make better decisions.
We do things the right way for the right reasons. We are responsible and accountable for the work we do and the way we do it.
