Possess a why greater than yourself
Our first core value, Purpose, is our single most important core value because the other six ultimately tie back to Purpose. Here at Marksmen we believe living a purpose-full life is to know God and honor Him in the things we do, both in business and in our personal lives. And in that, the other six core values live and serve to glorify Him. Our purpose is not about what we do, or how we do it, but why we do it. Life is too short to live off-purpose.
Focus on a team approach
The success of our company is rooted in the strength of the relationships each of us make. The more we feed these relationships, the more we will get from them. We want every employee to feel empowered to build the relationships that will sustain our business. Create relationships with everyone you encounter, seek them out, build upon them, and be loyal to them.
Strive to rise above the status quo
We are obsessed with Excellence, it’s in our tagline, “Focused on Excellence”, it’s part of our philosophy, “Execute with Excellence” and it’s our third core value. Our never-ending mission is in the pursuit of excellence. When we make excellence our standard that’s how we serve our greater purpose, our why. When we are Focused on Excellence and wholly devoting ourselves to our work, then we produce quality work, and that serves and glorifies God.
Innovate the ways we achieve and grow
We believe in continuous, incremental improvements. It’s everyone doing the little things and innovating daily that keeps ahead. It doesn’t have to be broken to be improved. If we did just one thing better than our competition, it would be fairly easy for our competition to level the playing field. They can just imitate that one thing. But if we do thousands of little things better than anyone else, we become nearly impossible to imitate.
Embody Truth and Honesty
Integrity is the foundation on which we build our business. When we embody trustworthiness, honesty, and kindness, we will attract high value clients and subcontractors. Every decision we make should be made based on what is right, not who is right. Integrity is a non-negotiable quality of our people. Embodying integrity leads us to excellence and execution, it aids in our cultivation as individuals, and it builds lasting relationships.
Give selflessly to build the greater good
Service is built into the very being of our company and it’s fundamental to our identity. For us, service is about doing something for the greater good without regard for personal gain or recognition. And it comes in many forms, from the individual volunteering and helping others to the company giving financially and supporting the individual interests of staff and clients.
Close fully and effectively
Execution is about arriving at the end and achieving the goal. We understand that we cannot be successful if we don’t finish what we start. That’s why execution is our final core value and an integral part of our core process. Finishing strong is a sign of commitment, integrity, and excellence. We know that planning with precision and communicating with clarity sets us up for executing with excellence.
