OUR CORE VALUES
We Are On a Mission
Our mission is to guide leadership transitions for social enterprises.
Our objective is to advance social enterprises through executive staff augmentation.
Our accomplished team members are skillful leaders with diverse expertise to help your organization pivot forward and shift into a period of adaptive transformation.
Our approach is tailored to your unique needs to keep the organization running; to reassure staff, funders, and community stakeholders; and help guide the Board in charting the organization’s future.
Our values reinforce this mission and we hire people who organically identify with, believe in, and are dedicated to advancing your mission.
We are all in with you
From our clients to our partners, from our team members to the communities that welcome us, we stand beside you. We serve with respect, humility and in collaboration.
We believe in being the best
Valtas is a professional service firm and as such our people are our product and our brand. We strive to exceed our clients’ expectations at every turn. We deliver our very best in all that we do, holding ourselves accountable for results. We are performance driven, outcome focused and transparent in action.
We cultivate an evolving equity and inclusion lens
What does this mean? For Valtas it is representation and acceptance of all forms of visible and invisible difference. It is a sense of belonging and being respected, valued and seen for who we are as individuals and as an organization. It means fairness in creating opportunities for all to have equal access to development, resources, and compensation.
We understand the critical importance of listening. It is more important than speaking. We commit to listening to understand and we commit to staying engaged.
We are honest and speak our truth responsibly
Honesty starts with internal interactions and decisions; everyone here is a part of it. In our culture, we value behavior that is straightforward, sincere and rooted in integrity. We value an open dialog of ideas, where the best ideas float to the top regardless of origin. We seek the truth in things and communicate our ideas responsibly and with intention.
We believe in balance
We encourage each other to enjoy all aspects of life. We provide a work environment that facilitates career alternatives for melding, balancing and flexing the work life and personal life mix as defined by each individual.
We believe in the broader community model
We believe in a culture of greater good. We espouse the giving of time, of talent, and resources. The communities where we live, and work in are the soil from which we are nourished. By re-investing in our communities, we ensure an environment from which all of our beliefs and values can thrive.
