Our Five Key Behaviors
1. Live the Company Values
We all have the company values listed on the back of our badges—Quality, Customer Satisfaction, Leadership, Integrity, People, Suppliers. Integrity must characterize everything we do. We want everyone who comes in contact with us to know that we do things the right way at Umbra Applied Technologies. We do not take short cuts.
2. Focus on Operating Excellence
Umbra Applied Technologies is very well positioned strategically. We must focus on program performance to deliver on the full operating and financial potential of our company.
3. Act With Speed
Umbra Applied Technologies is a much larger company today than we were 36 months ago. With this increased size comes the challenge of operating in a timely fashion. We must avoid bureaucratic delays. We must be agile enough to act faster than our competitors. This “small company” behavior has characterized Umbra Applied Technologies all along and is one we must continue.
4. Communicate Openly
We want good news to travel fast and bad news to travel even faster up the line. We need to be mindful of the importance of honestly communicating problems as well as breakthroughs. The sooner we communicate a problem, the easier it is for us to marshal our company’s resources to solve it.
5. Collaborate Across the Company
Umbra Applied Technologies’ power comes from the talented people who make up our company. By cooperating and sharing our knowledge with each other seamlessly across organizations, we can make our company even stronger.
