We aim to encourage, inspire and protect ethical decision-making.
Our core values support our mission, shape our culture and serve as guiding principles that dictate our behaviors and actions.
Our core values:
Safety – We work as a team and look out for each other. We continually strive to improve safety performance and take immediate action when a safety issue is identified.
Integrity – We act with honesty, respect, accountability and commitment in all functions and interactions. This strengthens our relationships within Associated and our three-tiered system, as well as with our strategic business partners.
Member focused – We never forget whom we work for and why we exist. We are committed to supplying reliable electricity and being the low-cost provider for our member-owners.
Employee value – We have confidence in ourselves and the organization and we trust and respect each other. We leverage the talents and contributions of every individual and encourage individual responsibility and quick action.
Performance excellence – We value, recognize and reward high performance. Through innovation, teamwork and continuous improvement we achieve efficiencies and meet our members’ expectations.
Community citizenship – We partner with our local communities to improve the quality of life. This begins with providing economical and reliable power and continues as we represent Associated in the community.
