The culture at SDK is evident the minute you walk in the door. We believe in teamwork and in treating each other with care and respect. This philosophy, in turn, is how we work with our clients as well. We have an open door policy and believe in every member of our team working with clients. It is this nurturing of employees and clients that sets us apart and is clearly stated in the firm’s vision:
“We will be a firm with integrity, pursuing excellence with a personal touch in everything we do.”
In fulfilling our mission and vision, we believe in the following values:
- We treat each other with care and respect – we trust each other, we hold each other accountable, we challenge each other and we work as a team.
- We believe in doing what is best for our clients.
- We believe in continual learning, constantly seeking new knowledge in an effort to apply our expertise on clients’ behalf with creative solutions.
- We believe in delivering superior service, going the extra step to exceed our clients’ expectations.
- We believe in serving our community in order that our people help to make a difference in the world.
This belief in serving our community is not just lip service. We actively support many charities both financially and in service. Most notable is the fact that each fall the firm celebrates its roots and beginning by spending a day in service. We celebrate our success, close our doors for a day and work with a local charity; we support their efforts in an effort to advance their mission and provided needed work. It brings the employees closer and brings to light the difference businesses can make in the community. In addition, you will find people all throughout SDK participating in a variety of personal endeavors — community, civic, religious and educational organizations – in an effort to make a difference. We applaud them and support them as they live out our values and ideals in their own communities. We think this gives everyone a well rounded perspective and also make them more aware of the superior client service we demand for our clients.
