Our Core Values
While our international presence is far reaching, we pride ourselves on being one company around the globe. We sustain this single culture by remaining true to our three core values:
1. We are a relationship-based company
This first core value is also our fundamental business strategy: We focus on forging strong, long-term relationships with our clients, as we consider sound client relationships the most important contributor to our success. We cement these relationships by providing superior customer value and by continuously improving our performance.
2. Growth is an imperative
Our clients’ needs drive our business, so we grow in pace with their growth. Indeed, the neck-and-neck global marketplace demands growth. And profitable growth is what all our stakeholder groups--client, employee, and shareholder--desire most from us. Our goal is to grow our business by 15 percent, every year.
3. People are our greatest asset
Employee talent is the cornerstone of our success: Their expertise and capabilities win us the work, perform the work, create value for our clients, and generate loyalty in our investors. So we create an environment where our employees meet fresh, exciting challenges and experience the satisfaction of a job well done. Ours is also an environment that is flexible to change and open to innovation. At Jacobs, every employee contributes to value-added performance.
