Our Core Values- FISHING

 

Fast Failure

Our first belief is “Fast Failure” as opposed to slow, stupid, and repeated failure. We admit and learn from our mistakes. 

In the Light

“In the Light” defines our corporate culture where leadership shares financial information, business plans, and practices open communication. For instance, any employee can ask to see the President’s (or anyone else’s) expense account. It also means employees are encouraged and rewarded when they question management’s decisions.  In the Light ensures integrity in all our actions.

Servant Leadership

Servant Leadership is the way management treats employees. We believe the role of leadership is to support, coach, teach, and help every employee be successful. Leadership exists solely to help others be successful in their careers.

Honesty

Honesty is the root of our success. When employees trust and respect each other, there is no limit to what can be achieved!

Innovation

Innovation will ensure long-term growth and encourages employees to embrace change. We must get better and smarter every year. Innovation not only applies to products and processes, it applies to our management structure, our buildings, our policies and they way we treat each other. We are innovative in all ways of the business.

Never stop Learning

Never stop Learning is a belief that we have that places accountability on every employee to learn new things every year. We believe the role of leadership is to help every employee write their resume and make themselves more valuable.  If something were to happen to SilcoTek, every one of our employees could get a good job elsewhere because they kept their skills sharp. We believe security lies in the abilities of our people.

Give it all You've got

This one is self-explanatory! We are careful to hire exuberant individuals who go the extra mile, who exude positive energy, and who have fun every day at their jobs. You can’t enjoy “coming to work every day as much as going home” if you don’t take time to laugh and enjoy your work.
