Core Values Alive

About Dataprobe

If you have visited our website, I hope you had a chance to review our Core Values.  They are a reflection of who we are and what we strive for.  They help us make decisions and achieve our goals.

How did Our Core Values come to be?

We used an exercise to reveal and help clarify our core values.  We started with a question: If we were to send representatives to an Alien Planet from Dataprobe, which employees would we want to represent us.  Then the question was why.  What are the attributes of those employees that are a representation of our best selves.  From these, we distilled, compared and crystallized to reach our final Core Values

Telling Core Value Stories

We Share our Core Value Stories daily.  Its a celebration of the values are alive in each and every one of us.

These values were always present in our employees, it was the acknowledgement of them that became infectious, and spread though the company as Stories.  The telling of Core Value Stories; sharing how another employee honors our Core Values, is a daily occurrence in our meetings and huddles. It has created a culture at Dataprobe, that both celebrates and reinforces who we are and what we do.

Core Values Alive has created Pride of ourselves, in what we do, and the products we produce.
