As Nebraska’s first Certified B Corporation, we love working collaboratively with other organizations to identify their purpose and bring it to life.
Lots of companies have nice-sounding value statements posted on their website, but we think core values should represent the reality of how people within a company actually operate instead of being vaguely aspirational. At Firespring, we didn’t choose our values—they chose us.
Why meet expectations when you can beat them? We come to work on the daily ready to roll up our sleeves and accomplish something awesome for the people we work with and for. Some of us aren’t great at math, but we all give at least 110%.
“The lone wolf dies but the pack survives” is kind of an intense metaphor, but the sentiment is there. Sometimes it’s helping a fellow Firespringer out of a pickle, sometimes it’s going the extra mile for a client—either way, here, your back = had.
Caring is cool, kids. The success and well-being of our clients, coworkers and community is genuinely important to us—or, in other words, we give a shit. (Often, we even give multiple shits—sounds uncomfortable, but it’s still less awkward than a hug.)
This powerful purpose/values combo multiplied by 200-plus passionate team members equals infinity positive social impact.
