Company values are crucial for an organization as they serve as a guiding force that shapes its culture, decision-making processes, and overall identity. These values act as a “North Star”, providing a clear direction for employees and leaders to follow. When everyone in the organization is aligned with the same set of values, it fosters a sense of unity, purpose, and accountability.
At UES, we recently redefined our company values to best portray who we are as a company, and what we believe. These company values are best represented by the acronym STRIVE. STRIVE stands for Safety, Teamwork, Responsiveness, Integrity, Value, and Excellence.
Here’s how STRIVE is incorporated into our everyday actions at UES:
Safety – Safety for ourselves and others is a core value. We are personally accountable to show up fit for duty, and all team members have the right and obligation to stop unsafe work. We believe that all accidents are preventable, and incident reporting is key for a learning culture.
Teamwork – We operate and win as one UES with an inclusive culture where each team member is valued, informed, and supported. We act as a team with each other and clients to drive collaborate results.
Responsiveness – We are dedicated to understanding and serving our customers through reliable and responsive problem solving. We listen and are responsive to our fellow employees, ensuring that we all have the support and resources needed to perform and grow.
Integrity – We are honest and respectful in all interactions with customers, team members, vendors, and partners. We build trust by doing what we say and following through on commitments. We are committed to our social contract to support safe, quality, and environmentally sustainable outcomes for the communities we serve.
Value – For our clients, we strive to deliver expert, consistent, exceptional value through innovative processes. For our team members, we offer benefits, training, and career growth opportunities to create ongoing value.
Excellence – We deliver exceptional results to clients that anticipate and exceed their expectations. We hold ourselves to high standards of performance and quality in all we do with and for our clients, stakeholders, and each other.
With more than 3,500 employees across 80 branches nationally, we are STRIVING to be the best for our clients, customers and fellow employees!
