What qualities come to mind when you think about a great company? The right product offering? Great customer service? Availability and just in time delivery? Here at Veritiv, it’s all those things and more – and we call them the Veritiv Values.
In our first year, a primary focus of Veritiv has been building a values-based culture. This commitment is paying off. We have combined two organizations and created One Veritiv with a singular vision: One team, shaping success through exceptional service, innovative people, and consistent values. Our values – Integrity, One Team, People Commitment, Customer Focus, Operational Excellence and Passion for Results – drive our actions and define our future success.
In the famous book, Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap… and Others Don’t, author James C. Collins makes this point: “Great vision without great people is irrelevant.” We know that the reason Veritiv succeeds is because of our people. Of course, we sell products and services, but those products and services are part of customized solutions, developed by a committed team of industry specialists. The Vision and Values we established a year ago ring truer than ever.
Over the next several months, we will share stories of our Values in Action, showing how our employees are shaping success every day for our customers, our investors, our suppliers, and for each other.
Subscribe to this blog (over on the right) for regular updates on our Values journey, and make sure to follow Veritiv on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. We’re excited to share with you stories about the people that make Veritiv a good neighbor, a great place to work, and the right place to do business.
