From the company’s inception, we, as members of the ICOM organization, have aspired to run our company in ways reflective of our inner characters and codes of ethics. We recognize that ICOM is a composite of our individual contributions and that, collectively, we represent the heart and soul of the organization.
Over the years, our objectives as a company have changed in response to a dynamic environment. We expect our values, however, to remain constant, and we are dedicated to upholding our company’s uncompromising standards of quality, honesty, and integrity.
The corporation is a fictitious entity and is not an end in itself. The purpose of the corporation is to serve the interest of its members and stakeholders.
- We trust and respect individuals. ICOM intends to provide an environment in which members can move toward the accomplishment of their human goals. It is our belief that people want to do a good job. They must, however, be given the necessary tools, support and training. We seek to attract highly capable, innovative people who share the values upon which ICOM is built. The members will share in the success of the corporation and their efforts and contributions will be recognized.
- We achieve our personal and common goals through responsible membership in the ICOM community. Members are expected to participate in those decisions affecting the accomplishment of the results they have contracted to produce. The attributes of personal autonomy, non-manipulative treatment of individuals, a respect for the established rights of others and the ability to cooperate effectively are actively nurtured and supported. We endeavor to create a work environment that encourages diversity of people and ideas. We recognize and value individual work styles and characteristically focus on achievement of the end objective, rather than on the means by which it is pursued. Individual members are expected to accept responsibility for upgrading and continuously developing their technical and professional skills.
- We strive for a high level of achievement, contribution, and quality. Our customers expect ICOM’s products and services to be of high quality and to represent good value. The principal responsibility of each of our members is to satisfy our customers’ needs. Everyone must demonstrate a commitment to meeting the changing needs of the customer. For this reason, the prevailing atmosphere at ICOM must be one which encourages inquiry, investigation, and innovation in our techniques and management practices.
- We conduct business with uncompromising integrity. ICOM members are expected to deal with others openly and honestly, building loyal and trusting relationships with coworkers, vendors, customers, and union and community representatives. Individuals at all levels of the organization must comply with the highest standard of ethics in every situation.
