At Sanderson Stewart, we have a vision of being ridiculously good at what we do, without taking ourselves too seriously. We call this vision Ridiculocity
and CSTP are the key.
Not everyone gets to be a Sanderson Stewart employee because not everyone has that something special that makes them a CSTP. We are looking for those special few who have the spirit, drive, and ability to help us plan and design the future; we are looking for more Cool, Smart, Talented People. Our employees have the unique character and vision that make Sanderson Stewart projects ridiculously good. And award-winning. We understand that every team member brings not only expertise, but a unique perspective and insight, and we appreciate and encourage every contribution, quirk, and insight.
BEING COOL, SMART, AND TALENTED ISN’T ALWAYS EASY.
Sometimes you need a field guide to remind you of where you are going, and to help guide you in the right direction. At Sanderson Stewart, we are driven by purpose and guided by values. Our vision of Ridiculocity is only achievable if we are all boldly going in the same direction.
There is a big adventure out there and a whole world to make better. We use this trusty guide when we get out there!
CULTURE FIELD GUIDE FOR CSTP
BE WORLD CLASS
At Sanderson Stewart, our expectation is to deliver nothing less than extraordinary results. Everything. Everywhere. Every time. Ridiculous levels of service and quality without compromise. World class doesn’t mean uppity or expensive. It means we set the bar by which others are measured.
CSTP thrive on growth. Growth is what creates energy, vibrancy and opportunities. Growth requires optimism. Growth comes in many forms: growth of revenue and profit, growth of skills and abilities, growth of knowledge, mindset, perspective and wisdom. With growth comes challenges, but challenges are opportunities, not threats. So we will not be complacent and we will not be satisfied with the status quo. CSTP innovate and pursue growth with purpose, and a sense of urgency.
MAKE YOUR OWN BED
To be successful, we must hold ourselves accountable to do the things we say we will do. Personal responsibility is one or our highest ideals. If it’s yours, then own it. Even if it’s not yours, own it for the sake of the team. CSTP take the initiative, solve problems when we see them, even the ones we didn’t cause. We believe that no one owes us anything. At the end of the day, we chart our own course, and our success or failure lies in our hands and no one else’s. Make your own bed, pick up after yourself and make your mother proud.
TAKE THE HIGH ROAD
CSTP always take the high road. We carry ourselves with a quiet confidence, and we let our character speak for itself. Don’t be a jerk. Taking the high road will always pay off. It may take a while, but we take the long view. And even if it doesn’t, we will sleep well and our kids will be proud of us. Reputation matters. Lead by example and always keep it classy.
RIDE FOR THE BRAND
To be a CSTP is to be part of a proud team. Our pride is a selfless pride: the success of the team comes before our own. When we win, we win together. When we lose, then we’ve lost together. We will do our individual best, for the sake of those depending on us. CSTP teammates, in all our diversity, support one another, trust one another, and take pride in our teammates’ accomplishments. We boost each other up. Never do we pull someone down. This is a team sport: superheroes and prima donnas need not apply.
YOU GET WHAT YOU GIVE
At Sanderson Stewart, we know that we are here to serve someone or something other than ourselves. We are here for our CSTP teammates; we are here for our customers; we are here for the greater good of our communities. We are compassionate. We know that if we take care of others, then good things will come to us.
KEEP SANDERSON STEWART WEIRD
Sanderson Stewart is different, and we like it that way. Sometimes we’re a little bit goofy. Not crazy or irrational, just moderately goofy. We’re a little bit irreverent too, but professionally irreverent. We are skeptical of conventional wisdom and a this-is-the-way-it’s-always-been-done attitude. So we’re weird sometimes, but fun-loving, and never, ever one of the sheep. Weird is good.
NEVER FORGET THE GARAGE
Never forget where you came from. The corollary: don’t get too big for your britches. Remember, Sanderson Stewart started in a garage. The adaptable, bootstrapping, entrepreneurial spirit that was alive and well in that garage, is equally important for our future. Success never comes easy. It takes tenacity and grit. And CSTP know that ‘Do more with less’ eventually means we will have more, not less.
WORK HARD. PLAY. GO HOME.
At Sanderson Stewart, we know that people aren’t robots. CSTP are actual humans and we bring our whole selves to work…and sometimes our dogs. We work hard, really hard, because we know that accomplishing hard things builds character and pride and success. But play is good also, good for the body and good for the soul. Family and friends are important too. So is a little ‘me’ time. At Sanderson Stewart we support and care for our CSTP in all their wonderful dimensions. It’s never ‘just business.’ It’s people.
Celebration is an unalienable right. If it’s not, it should be. At Sanderson Stewart we celebrate. Small things. Big things. Successes. And as long as it didn’t kill us, even some of our failures. Why? Because life is hard, and we need to let our hair down and enjoy the good stuff when it happens. CSTP take their work seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Have fun! Ring the bell! Let’s get this party started!
