Our decisions, plans, and execution should always be towards building the long-term success of our team. This is what creates a great place to work and long-term job security.
Our Culture Matters
Great companies start by building an amazing culture. The root of our culture lies within the values that we all believe in and work for. It’s how we define our successes. It’s the way we interact and collaborate. It drives how we make our decisions. It’s the basis for how we achieve transformational results for our customers, within ourselves, and throughout our community.
Our Core Values
Technology moves fast. Think outside of the box.
Our teammates and customers get excited about the opportunity to learn from an expert who shares, but no one likes to work with a know-it-all.
Our tagline is “Achieve Transformational Results” for a reason. We founded and built Xgility around a passion for transformation. It’s more than just SharePoint. SharePoint is the mechanism by which we can passionately deliver upon our mission. Since the beginning, we’ve been driven with the ideals of Achieving Transformational Results in 3 areas: our clients, our people, and our communities.
We will seek to utilize the power of our collective knowledge and experiences through the use of collaboration tools and transparent, open discussions. This, along with an agile approach, will allow us to share knowledge and solve problems faster.
We named the company Xgility for a reason. We believe in living and embracing the core concepts of agile software development. Why? Because years of experience have proven that it works.
This is more than just not being a know-it-all. It’s how we interact, it’s how we make decisions, and it coincides with our strong value of collaboration. Egos cause high growth organizations to become dysfunctional. Checking our egos at the door ensures we work together to find the best solutions.
These are 2 different values, but we find they often go together. It is way more fun working with people who want to go somewhere, who try hard to get there, and believe they can do it! Positive people and workplaces outperform those that are negative. At Xgility, we want to win and have fun doing it.
We also realize we need to outperform our competition, we must have people from different backgrounds and experiences. We need a variety of ideas when solving complex problems. We also need a variety of personality types to perform various job roles successfully. There is no one personality type that is better than another. While it’s important for us to have homogeneity in our corporate values, we want and value diversity in personalities and experience.
In doing what’s right, we should always seek a WIN-WIN-WIN-WIN relationship. This means:
- WIN by doing what’s right by our customers
- WIN by doing what’s right by your teammates
- WIN by doing what’s right for the long-term success of the company
- WIN by doing what’s right in the community
This value can be summed up by the old saying “Do what you say when you say you are going to do it by.” Both Leadership and Accountability take character, integrity, and focus. From a leadership perspective, it’s almost impossible to gain trust and performance from your team without each of these traits.
From a team accountability perspective, this value ensures we are working on the right priorities, doing the right things, and being remarkable while doing it. Character, Integrity, and Focus build the long-term relationships necessary to build a long-term, sustainable company.
In the business and IT world, trust is the most important asset we have. And while trust can take time to build, we all know it can be broken within seconds. Following this simple value will help guide all of us to better relationships with our partners, teammates, and customers.
People remember those who leave a positive impression. Every day we have a choice. It’s the choice we have about what we do with our time and how engaged we are. We can choose to do the minimum or we can practice excellence. We have a choice. Only through being fully engaged can we do great things. Producing our best work requires full engagement. Working on a team that is not engaged is no fun.
