There are some pretty important-sounding mission statements out there, but we have found that sticking to our core values keeps us focused and leads us to the right decisions. We measure our actions and policies against this simple list:
In order to build a culture based on our Core Values, every new co-worker meets with our President, Todd Plymate, during his or her first month of employment. In addition to learning a little of the history of Plymate, he or she is given a special Plymate gold coin with the five Core Values on the back. A silver Core Values coin is awarded to any co-worker who goes above and beyond the day-to-day practices in living up to our Core Values.
