We answer that question with Salas O'Brien's "Ownership Values." These values describe, under the headings of "Expect Leadership, Expect Results, Expect Relationships," what it means to be an owner of Salas O'Brien. And though we're not perfect, we hold ourselves accountable to these values and believe they are the reason clients can "expect a difference" from us.
Here's a brief summary of the Ownership Values values and how they influence life at Salas O'Brien. If you're interested, we'd love for you to read the whole thing and let us know what you think.
- They Establish Our Leadership Culture. Salas O'Brien is a company of leaders, where people take responsibility for their projects because they know that whatever part they play has a direct impact on the success of our company. We're all in it together financially and are passionate about encouraging each others' growth, living with energy and integrity, and contributing meaningfully to our communities.
- They Keep Us Focused on Results. Salas O'Brien does work across the country for a wide variety of clients. Our Ownership Values are a constant reminder of how we focus on continuous improvement, tailor designs for each client and situation, and maintain a healthy firm for the long term.
- They Remind Us that Relationships Are Everything. Salas O'Brien is a group of people who love to work hard and have fun together.
