These words are at the core of our unique culture. But what do they really mean in practice? The 31 “Fundamentals” that make up The SVA DNA provide the answer. They identify how we work with our clients, our partners, and each other. These fundamentals describe who we are, and they’re what drive our success.
The heart of SVA is our people — their professionalism, skills, experience, commitment, innovation and vision. Along with our commitment to our clients and our desire to be the best, our organizational values shape our strategies and practices.
The SVA difference is how we work with our employees to help shape their careers and the special programs we've developed to enable them to meet their professional goals. The SVA difference is built upon the following values:
We strive to attract highly capable individuals who will contribute enthusiastically and share in the success that they help make possible. Our role is to provide the tools and support to enhance our employees.
We encourage our employees to continually upgrade their skills and capabilities through ongoing training and development. We also expect our staff to take responsibility for meeting objectives, and encourage flexibility and innovation in how objectives are reached.
To be effective in our work and in our communities, we must be open and honest as we strive to earn clients' trust and loyalty. In everything we do, acting with uncompromising integrity is our highest priority.
To achieve our goals and meet our clients' needs, we understand the necessity of cooperation. We work as a team to provide clients with comprehensive and integrated services. The benefits and obligations of the commitment are shared by all of us at SVA.
For SVA to be a leader, our employees should always be looking for new and better ways to do their work. Our professionals are real leaders who generate enthusiasm and are willing to put forth extra effort to meet client needs.
