Our compass. Integrity is our most fundamental core value, and we expect it of one another in everything we do. We are honest, objective, and interact with each other and our client-partners with strong moral principles. We don’t cut corners, we’re transparent in how we conduct business, and you can trust us to guide you in the right direction.
Our purpose. A leading focus of Spirit is the well-being and success of People – our team members, our client-partners, and our communities. We invest resources in community causes to improve the livelihood of those around us. We focus on the success of our individual client-partners, not just the success of the project. The internal structure, programs, and benefits within Spirit support our own People, growing them both personally and professionally. We know investing in our People leads to the greatest impact and the best service to our client-partners.
Our standard. Since its inception, Spirit’s business model has been centered around talented individuals providing excellent products and services. We aim for our work to be considered the “gold standard” in our field, respected by our clients, peers, and agency partners. We definitely subscribe to the concept of “Strive for perfection, settle for Excellence” as we deliver our services in a thorough yet cost-effective manner. We strive to ensure our products and services consistently exceed the expectations of our client-partners.
Our mindset. In business and in life, success is not merely an endpoint; it is an evolving target, and Continuous Improvement – always listening and learning – is required for us to consistently succeed. This applies to both the organization being open to change as well as individuals being open to growth through challenges that expand horizons. This drive translates to better developed careers, consistently excellent services, and happier client-partners.
Bring Your Whole Self to Spirit!
We’re committed to proactively creating a culture that encourages and supports diversity and inclusion. Our shared core values may bring us together, but we know the strength of our team comes from the differences of our people. We want you to bring your whole self to work when you find your fit with Spirit.
"The servant-leader is servant first… It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first."
- Robert K. Greenleaf
To successfully implement our core values we promote a culture of Servant Leadership. Founded in the concept that to truly lead and positively impact the individuals and world around us, one must first genuinely seek to serve. This applies to all our relationships – our team members and associates, our client-partners, and our agency regulators.
Spirit sponsors several internal committees that are actively run by our employees. The purpose of these committees is to enrich our team members and the surrounding communities, and they build teamwork and a sense of comradery amongst coworkers. We believe that it is important for companies to give back, and we are proud to offer various ways for our team members to participate in community outreach and improvement.
The Humanitarian Committee’s goal is to support the community surrounding our respective offices through outreach and involvement. The Humanitarian Committee offers opportunities to volunteer locally, donate to local charities, and engage with our partner organizations (e.g., Reach Unlimited and The Delores Project) throughout the year.
The Sustainability Committee’s goal is to help Spirit continue to learn how to operate in a more sustainable way and help us be more sustainable in our personal lives. The committee sponsors educational opportunities for team members, as well as identifies sustainable solutions and actions for everyday activities around the office or at home.
The Wellness Committee’s goal is to promote mental and physical wellness in team members’ personal and professional lives. The committee promotes wellness through educational opportunities, fun events to encourage being active, potlucks, and healthy recipe promotion. The mental and physical well-being of all those who work at Spirit is a key to success!
At Spirit, inclusion is how we unleash the power of diversity. It is with this sentiment that we fully commit to an inclusive and diverse workplace. “People” being one of our core values, we strive to foster a sense of belonging, empowerment, purpose, and improvement, for our People. We celebrate multiple approaches, backgrounds, and points of view. We are on this journey together, and we are excited for what the future holds.
