At a basic level, values are the core beliefs and commitments that matter most to a company, its people and its stakeholders. When envisioning Capstak, we knew having a set of core values would be paramount to our success. They would be the foundation. In the beginning of Capstak, we were operating on common beliefs and our personal standards. We had developed an implied company culture. However, we were unsure if it was fully understood and, more importantly, if this culture was how we wanted to move forward to achieve our vision. As Capstak continues to progress and take steps toward our vision, we need to formally define and articulate our core values.
We knew our values would guide our decisions and actions from the tactical to the strategic. They would serve as a litmus test. Our company’s values and intellect would be used to make the right decisions and give our team freedom with accountability, rather than being bogged down by writing too many policies and procedures. Grounding process and direction in core values helps employees and all stakeholders understand why decisions are made. Expectations are aligned. As Capstak grows, our core values will help to manage and direct inevitable change without compromising the underlying foundation that made the company successful in the first place. Our core values will be used in our journey to develop the market network for commercial real estate. We believe opportunity can come from anywhere. We know a connected community can drive unprecedented change. This journey to our vision will be guided by our core values.
At Capstak, we are embracing 7 Core Values on our quest to create a meaningful company that provides value to the community. These values are rooted in the belief that people thrive when they have mastery, purpose and autonomy.
