At Tek4Kids, we strive to make all our efforts reflect our commitment to improving access to education and clean water in the communities in which we serve. We consider the schools and students with whom we are partnered to be an extension of our organization. Thus, any actions taken for our well-being must also be for theirs. The following standards identify key values that we expect from our employees, volunteers and associates:
Integrity is living by our highest values. It is being honest and sincere. Integrity helps us listen to our conscience, do the right thing, and tell the truth. We act with integrity when our words and actions match. Integrity gives us self-respect and a peaceful heart.
We show respect by speaking and acting with courtesy. We treat others with dignity and honor the rules of our family, school and nation. Respect ourselves, and others will respect us.
Cooperation is working together and sharing the load. When we cooperate, we join with others to do things that cannot be done alone. We are willing to follow the rules which keep everyone safe and happy. Together we can accomplish great things.
Service is giving to others, making a difference in their lives. We consider their needs as important as our own. Be helpful without waiting to be asked. Do every job with excellence. When we act with a spirit of service, we can change the world.
Perseverance is being steadfast and persistent. We commit to our goals and overcome obstacles, no matter how long it takes. When we persevere, we don’t give up…we keep going. Like a strong ship in a storm, we don’t become battered or blown off course. We just ride the waves.
Excellence is doing our best, giving careful attention to every task and every relationship. Excellence is effort guided by a noble purpose. It is a desire for perfection. The perfection of a seed comes in the fruit. When we practice excellence, we bring our gifts to fruition. Excellence is the key to success.
We take full responsibility for our activities and are accountable for our work. We honor our commitments and take pride in our work.
