Additional Culture Details
UWM celebrates their people and all of their accomplishments through various events throughout the year. Every Thursday at 3 o’clock, UWM hosts a dance party for all team members to participate in. It is 15 minutes dedicated to get away from the desk and have some fun. Being a family-oriented company, UWM often focuses events around their team members as well as everyone’s families. Every summer UWM hosts a fair, now in their parking lot, completely devoted to team members and their families. Each team member is provided with tickets to use for rides, games and food. In October, each team within the company decorates their area in a theme for Halloween. Then, UWM hosts, “Boonited,” an event where all team members are invited to bring their children in to see all of the decorations and trick-or-treat throughout the building. No matter how big or small, there is always something to celebrate at UWM.
Values
Pillar #1 - People are our greatest asset
Our people are the secret to UWM's success. That's why we invest in them with continuous and real-time training so that can continue to set the standard.
Pillar #2 - Service is everyone's responsibility
Some call it customer service. We call it Younited to Wow. It means making sure every interaction is meaningful, magical and memorable.
Pillar #3 - We are relationship driven, not transaction driven
Our long-term reputation is more important than short-term gains. We place a premium on creating lasting relationships above all else.
Pillar #4 - We are thumb pointers, not finger pointers
If something doesn't go as planned, we don't play the blame game. We own it. Improve it. And learn from it.
Pillar #5 - Continuous improvement is essential for long-term success
If you're not moving forward, you're standing still. We continuously invest in our people, introduce new technology and innovate solutions.
Pillar #6 - Our path is paved with fun and friendship
We are big believers that work can (and should) be fun. It's about finding your passion and purpose -- but always leaving time for play.
