10 Values of a Kingdom Company

By Keny Humphreys - Our values are standards by which basic business choices and decisions are made. They are revealed in the context of personal relationships (example: Buyer to Supplier, Service Person to Store Manager, Manager to Employee, etc.). The integrity of a firm’s structure is dependent upon its values. These values should be evidenced by our behavior to each other and to those outside our firm. The sum of all of our behavior, which reveals our values, represents our “corporate culture”. We do not possess our values as a company in order to succeed; rather, we believe we will succeed because of our values.

The following values represent the substance of our firm’s foundation. They exemplify our spirit, the very essence of that which we consider worthwhile, important, and significant. We will treasure and prize these values by our words, thoughts, actions, and even our motives. We will build our company on what they represent.

1. TRUSTWORTHY WITH INTEGRITY

We will be reliable, dependable, and can be counted on to keep promises. “We will do
what we say we will do” within the promised time frame.

2. WORTH OF THE INDIVIDUAL

We will practice the “Golden Rule” in decision-making. We will respect human life, dignity, and rights of each including the consideration of their health, safety and work environment. We will seek to give positive affirmation and recognition. We are in business for “people” (employees, customers, vendors), not for our own wealth, power, prestige, or ego.

3. FAMILY AND STABILITY IN RELATIONSHIPS

The family is the foundation unit of every society. We will respect women as wives, men as husband, and singles. The family has a higher priority than the firm and its profitability; therefore, we will seek to build it up, not tear it down.

4. HONEST AND TRUTHFUL COMMUNICATION

We will strive to be genuine, open, and aboveboard in all relationships. We will
honestly and accurately report the facts.

5. RESPONSIBILITY OF THE INDIVIDUALS AS A PART OF A TEAM

For the use of our time, talents, and company resources. Each of us will accept individual accountability for how we carry out our responsibilities. We, as a company, will aim to motivate each other by praise rather than criticism so as to create an atmosphere of productivity and freedom to admit individual mistakes in order to accomplish our team goals.
6. BALANCE OF WORK/REST

Vacations and breaks will be encouraged so that proper rest, recreation, and reflection
will maximize the long-term effectiveness and productivity of the individual and the
entire team. We believe in working hard, but not necessarily in working unproductive
long hours just for the sake of appearance.

7. REWARDING PRODUCTIVITY

In every way possible (example: praise, monetary, promotion, awards, benefits, etc.),
we will seek to reward industriousness, innovation, initiative, prudence, and discipline.
Our focus is to develop our full potential, the natural results of which is reaping the
rewards of our labor.

8. EVERYONE IS ACCOUNTABLE TO AUTHORITY

Any enterprise must have structure and organization. Every person is accountable to
a higher authority.

9. SERVANT LEADERS

Within every organization there are many managers, but few leaders. Effective
leaders will be servants who have attracted a following because of their passion,
vision, integrity, and love for their people. We will make every effort to develop this
kind of leader.

10. STEWARDSHIP

We will strive to use wisely and prudently the resources with which we have been
entrusted.
