Maintaining a work/personal life balance

We are flexible, but balanced. We understand that employees have lives outside of work and encourage them to take advantage of opportunities that improve their personal and/or work lives.

Empowerment

We constantly seek innovative ways to make the SRI a better place to work and to improve the services we provide to customers. We pride ourselves on creating an atmosphere that encourages forward thinking. We look to advance the SRI's strengths and develop in areas needing improvement. We are committed to providing opportunities for skills and talents to be used and developed effectively in ways that benefit the organization while adding value to each employee's experience at the SRI.

Together we will work cooperatively for the common good of the SRI, capitalizing on our individual strengths. We achieve excellence by putting collective goals ahead of personal interests.

Communication

We encourage open communication and respectful interactions in the spirit of cooperation. Constant communication regarding projects and assigned work among coworkers, supervisors, and other staff is extremely important to our business.
