Our values

It is important that our values reflect who we are, what we do and how we uniquely serve our customers, consumers, employees and the community.


Do the right thing

We strive to lead with integrity, focus on the interests of our people, communities and customers to deliver on the promises we make.


Make a difference

We strive to make a difference every day and empower each other to achieve great things together — creating a positive impact on society. 


Look for a better way

We lean forward, challenge the status quo and embrace risk to anticipate and better meet the needs of everyone who counts on us. 


Be inclusive

We believe greatness can come from anywhere and anyone — so we embrace the diversity of people and ideas and listen openly.


Land acknowledge statement

We recognize the sacred land upon which we stand today. These are the ancestral lands of Hoocąkra, known as the Ho-Chunk (English translation: people of the big voice). We acknowledge and respect the sovereignty of the Ho-Chunk Nation, the eleven other federally recognized tribes of Wisconsin and all indigenous tribes. We recognize that indigenous peoples were forcibly removed from these lands for decades before the year 1832, which marked the beginning of the official removal policy of the U.S. government. Originally called TeeJop (day JOPE, English translation: four lakes), the area is now called Madison. We recognize the original inhabitants and their culture, their sacred effigy mounds, the stewardship of this land for over 12,000 years, and the descendants that continue to call this place their home. In offering this land acknowledgment, we are making a commitment to strengthen our partnerships with Indigenous communities throughout the country and more specifically with the Ho-Chunk Nation.

Values in Practice

Our Values in Practice (ViP) program recognizes employees who lean into our corporate values and exemplify exceptional performance throughout the year. Employees are nominated by their peers, and winners are selected by a committee of diverse employees.

Among hundreds of nominations this year, these individuals stood out for the difference they’re making — earning them a ViP award.
