THE PRINCIPLES THAT DRIVE US

  • Do what you say and say what you do.

    This means exactly what it says.

  • No job too small or too boring.

    Understand that every project lends something to your resume, your career and the firm if done well. Boring jobs lead to great results too.

  • Own your own mistakes.

    Mistakes happen. Be the first to point it out once recognized, be the first to take responsibility for it and then be the first to present solutions to fix it.

  • Don’t try and sign up for something you can't do.

    We try to solve problems for our clients. End of story. If we provide tried and true services to our clients we will prevail. If we move into uncharted territory with our clients then own your mistakes and work WITH our clients not AT them as if we know everything.

  • No new fish on new contracts.

    We don’t put people who are new to the company on new pieces of business. We need to get to know each other’s work product before we can commit to finding the correct solution for a client. Additionally, new business or new clients always have new challenges, folks who have been with the company for a while are best suited to address these challenges.

  • Good work gets good work.

    If we do the best job possible, on each job, we will safeguard our reputations for being solution providers and solid partners to our clients. They will naturally look to work with us in the future. People work with who they know, who they like and who they trust.

  • Always tell the truth.

    We don’t lie about anything ever.

  • Be considerate of others.

    ALL others—clients, fellow colleagues, strangers in the street. How we interact with the planet creeps into our every moment: our work, our personal satisfaction, our everything. Be kind.

  • No ink, no work.

    Motive Power does not start work, or renew work without a signed contract. We respect our clients enough to ensure we do the best possible work for them, they need to respect the value we bring by signing up for that work in a legitimate way.

  • To each his own.

    If it makes someone else happy and isn’t hurting anyone then don’t judge and be pleased that someone else is happy about something a. Motive Power is a family of unique individuals. We all come together to provide a combination of unique perspectives and we are stronger for it. This takes an open mind about each other’s differences and respect for how they contribute to the overall whole.
