The Foundation and Four Cornerstones of Fort Point
BEFORE day one, the founders of Fort Point brought to action the importance of establishing and communicating our Company values. Looking ahead, we wanted our prospective and active employees and customers to know what we believed and how that would translate through our daily decision-making, practices and interactions.
We started by examining our own personal and professional values, foreseeing that our Company’s sustainable success was fundamentally dependent on the alignment and communication of our values. From this introspective inspiration, we created and forever live by The Foundation and Four Cornerstones of Fort Point.
We want you to know what you can expect from us.
Safety – The Foundation
Safety is our highest priority. In everything we do, we are dedicated to safety leadership by fostering a safe work environment, setting safety standards, enforcing safe work practices, and promoting the health and well-being of our employees, ourselves and our families and those we work with.
Respect – The 1st Cornerstone
We are committed to humble respect for others and ourselves. We acknowledge our potential and maximize our time and use of our abilities, creating meaning and purpose, allowing people to give of their best and fully recognizing and rewarding the contributions of others.
Communication – The 2nd Cornerstone
We promote and exercise open, unmetered and regular communications. We strive to be clear, to be accurate, to be relevant and to add value – seeking first to understand, then to be understood.
Transparency – The 3rd Cornerstone
We practice truthful and full disclosure, have an open book policy, explain how we operate, and share our business values and beliefs. We bind ourselves to irreproachable standards of business practices and the ethical, responsible and caring treatment of others.
Accountability – The 4th Cornerstone
We pledge to do the right thing for the benefit of others. We bear great responsibility for our decisions and hold ourselves accountable for the results. We recognize that, as professionals, we are the sum of our backgrounds and circumstances, but more importantly, we are responsible for what we will do and who we will become and how we will positively influence the success of others.
