Additional Culture Details
At EDSI, we feel the special combination of the 3 P's - People, Process and Perspective, make us unique:
People - EDSI representatives embody our mission. They see through the customer's eyes. We want to understand the most important aspects of any project and exceed prescribed goals and expectations. We want to make a difference. We want to be there, when we are needed the most, for people and companies in transition.
Process - Process has always been extremely important to us at EDSI. Dating back to the first time we received our ISO certification, more than 20 years ago, we acknowledge that what gets measured gets improved. The standard processes establish a baseline of behavior that is continuously improved.
Perspective - We believe the best decisions can be made by listening to different perspectives and incorporating the very best ideas from local, regional and national perspectives. Our local offices know they can call upon experts that are available to assist their efforts. You see things differently when you work ON local efforts, as opposed to IN the local office environment. The combination of those two perspectives leads to powerful solutions.
Show Up
- I always arrive on time. I am the best me I can be today, I use my judgement and take initive. My word is my bond.
I wonder. I am self aware. I treat my colleagues like customers. I am part of the solution,
I live my professional life in service for others. I love other people's perspectives, I do what's best for the blocks. I talk with people not about them.
