Because INGUARD believes that community comes first, we conduct business in a way that is guided by steadfast principles. Our commitment to our company values is evident in our emphasis on fairness and equality in our dealings with both our clients and employees.
INGUARD subscribes to a high standard of integrity which is engrained in our culture code and is expected of each employee and business with which we partner. We hold our entire company accountable for putting our company’s vision and mission into practice. With the help of our hard-working, visionary team, we are able to make the world a better place, one step at a time.
In this spirit, we stand by the importance of upholding ethical business standards, such as:
While we thoroughly support a service-oriented model towards individuals and our community, we also stand by our belief that, as a business, INGUARD must remain self-sufficient on our own. As such, we do not and will not take tax credits, abatements, or financing.
Our commitment to environmentalism, education, employee well-being, and equality don’t just end with the examples we’ve listed: they guide our everyday business decisions and encourage us to speak out and be vocal proponents for positive change.
As a result, we pledge to not partner with businesses—as either a provider or as a client—who violate the ethical tenets within our ethos.
We also seek out opportunities to be a guiding voice towards a kinder and more community-focused business world. Members of our management leadership team have written publicly on our company’s blog and for publications, such as The Huffington Post, about topics like the importance of equality and environmental conservation, and we continue to pursue opportunities to work towards a better world for all people.
It is also important to us that we never assume that we have arrived at an endpoint of this work. We actively investigate any unmet needs within our community, region and the insurance industry, and are continually willing to brainstorm for proactive solutions. We’re in this for the long haul, and we’re in it with heart.
