Defining our Core Values: Authentic, Reliable, and Thoughtful

What inspires you to work hard and do your best?

For the team at Gibraltar, it’s more than just a paycheck.

Like most employees, we want to feel capable and appreciated – and perhaps most importantly – feel empowered to make difference.

So, what’s one of the keys to making work feel like more than just work? For us, a meaningful set of company values sets a strong foundation for ongoing employee engagement.

And the Gibraltar team is not alone. Feeling aligned with a company’s values is not only one of the primary reasons employees love where they work, it is also pivotal for fostering strong relationships with clients and business partners.

For some companies, values are established from the top down.

“We took a different approach to defining our guiding values,” explained Gibraltar President Scott Winicour. “It was important to us to take a collaborative, employee-first approach; we wanted to hear from everyone and keep an open mind along the way. Ultimately, our process included listening, reflecting on what we heard, then narrowing down and defining the values that resonated most with our team.”

It was also important to keep the values succinct. “Our values are a reflection of who we are and to be most impactful, they need to be short and memorable, so we can incorporate them and live them every day,” Winicour said.

Gibraltar’s core values – Authentic, Reliable, and Thoughtful – are now the cornerstone for maintaining a strong company culture and best serving our clients and business partners.

Gibraltar Values Defined:

Authentic – We stand up for what we believe and openly share our point of view. We respect when others do the same. We can win as a team by fostering open communication with all of our stakeholders.

Reliable – We are dependable, not only for the source of capital we provide, but also for how we carefully manage the relationships we develop. We believe consistency is key to building trust.

Thoughtful – We recognize that every decision impacts someone. We place ourselves in the position of everyone we serve – clients, shareholders, and team members – so that we can present comprehensive, efficient solutions while still being mindful of acceptable levels of risk.

At Gibraltar, we are trained to listen, think differently, and take unique circumstances into account. Are you interested in building a career at our authentic, reliable and thoughtful organization? Contact us and let us know.
