Summit Maids Unveils New Company Value

Today we are excited to unveil our newest company value: Be Bold. Be Brave.

While many companies design company values as a passing exercise to be endured, we make a concerted effort to live by our values every day.

So to add a new value to our Vision and Values page is a big deal.

We founded the company on three main pillars: Take Care of the Team, Do Right by the Client, and Give Back to the Community.

And so far, we’ve done a good job of living up to those.

But as we really sat down and looked at them, we felt that they were still missing something. Something that took those initial three values from being static to something more dynamic – something that translates into action.

When we heard the words “Be Bold. Be Brave.” at a recent event, we knew that they were the missing piece of the puzzle. They perfectly encapsulated that missing feeling that we knew we needed.

It’s great to have guiding company values, but this fourth value takes the first three from being something that looks great on a wall to a real living concept where our team members take those values and are reminded to put them into action every single day.

To us, “Be Bold. Be Brave.” means standing up for what we believe in and not being afraid to speak out about it.

It means that when we see something that can or should be changed, we do something about it.

It means that we are not afraid to do what’s right, even if it’s not the popular thing to do.

At Summit Maids, we have never been afraid to stand up for things that we know are right. And now, we are empowering our entire team – and our clients – to stand together in being Bold and Brave, and not being afraid to speak up.
