How we work together within our organization as well as with our customers and suppliers defines us as an organization. It is through the cooperative and combined efforts of every GPA employee that we achieve both our individual and company goals. We promote cross-functional collaboration, communication and mutual respect with our customers, suppliers and each other to achieve success.
How we operate our business is as important as what we accomplish. We manage our business honestly and directly, accept responsibility for our actions, and follow through on commitments and promises. We treat each of our customers, employees and suppliers with dignity, respect and fairness and expect the same in return.
We believe creativity is limitless and has a place in virtually all endeavors. We feel a person can be creative in the way they manage people, turn a novel idea into a marketable product or service, participate in a team, or motivate others to grow and develop. We embrace new ideas, originality and resourcefulness and encourage the creative strength of each employee throughout all areas of the company.
We strive for excellence in all aspects of our daily responsibilities. We maintain an environment that emphasizes continuous improvement, focusing on informed decision-making, and effective and efficient business processes. To achieve excellence, we challenge ourselves to exceed the expectations of our customers, employees and vendors by striving to surpass our targets and improve our results.
It is these core values that guide GPA and its employees on a daily basis.
