The Importance of Having Company Values
At the most recent Summit regional workshops, we spent a lot of time talking about company Values. Having clear values, that represent what you believe in and how you want your team to act, is critical to establishing the kind of culture you want. Remember, in the absence of you setting the culture….. you’ll have a lot of subcultures, which may not all be good. After coming up with your values, determine which employees meet the values and which do not. You may need to “invite an employee to leave” if they don’t live the values, even if they’re a high performer. Below are Summit Services’ values.
