The Core Values are clearly held expectations of Graniterock People and the Company:
Safety Before All Else
Graniterock People and the Company place Safety ahead of achieving any of its other plans and goals. Our commitment to Safety extends to Graniterock People, our customers and the public. Graniterock People are expected to implement work plans which achieve Safety as the primary goal and to improve work site conditions to eliminate potential safety risks. The Company will provide effective safety training, including health and wellness education and support, and finance plant and equipment safety innovations and improvements.
Dedication to Customer Service Excellence
Customer service excellence requires Graniterock People to anticipate and exceed customer needs and expectations. We work hard to build long-term valuable business partnerships with our customers, and to live by our “Yes, we will” standard of responding positively and creatively to every ethical request for special products and services.
People Growth and Development
Graniterock provides an opportunity for personal growth and professional achievement through support of “lifelong learning,” through trust in people to do a good job and thereby creates an environment of freedom for individuals to direct their own work and work improvement. The Company strives to develop job responsibilities that are rewarding, worthwhile and challenging. Graniterock People and the Company demonstrate respect and caring for all members of the Graniterock Team and their families, and for our neighbors, customers and suppliers.
Honesty & Integrity
Graniterock and Graniterock People shall conduct their activities with uncompromising honesty and integrity. People in every job are expected to adhere to the highest standards of business ethics and fairness in all of our dealings with customers, suppliers, communities, government officials and agencies, and other Graniterock People. We expect the same high standards from the people and organizations with whom we work.
Continuous Improvement as a Way of Life
Graniterock People are achievement oriented, unsatisfied with “things the way they are” when improvements are possible. Rather than preserving or protecting the work of the past, Graniterock People encourage and support both incremental and sweeping change and recognize that risk-taking and honest mistakes are unavoidable parts of doing this. In everything we do, we will compare ourselves with the results achieved by role-model high performance companies in any industry. We are not satisfied with simply being “good,” we must be among the “best” in every important thing we do. Graniterock People consistently provide a “can do” commitment to individual—and team—driven improvements, and provide support for improvement ideas in other areas within the Company.
