Our Values – the How of Done Right

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

This is the first in a series of posts with the purpose of giving some background on Done Right, who we are and what we do. Today, focus is on our values.

These basic principles were put on paper before we even began working on our business plan, and they are truly the core of Done Right. We carry them in our hearts at all times, letting them guide us in decisions and help us find our way when we are lost. There is a story to each value which deserves to be told – but for now, here they are in brief:

  • It’s not about the money. We target our operations on innovation and progress, not growth. In our decisions, profit must never take priority over our principles.
  • Independence means freedom to act. We accept money from neither investors nor organizations, and we never let rules and regulations compromise our values.
  • Information wants to be free. We recognize sharing, teaching and collaboration as the key to success for ourselves as well as everyone.
  • The environment is a stakeholder. We strive to be net givers, not takers, both in the community in which we act, and the world as a whole.
  • Quality beats quantity. Quality is essential in our choice of materials, tools and processes, and must never be compromised.
  • Action speaks louder than words. We’re putting our money – and our lives – where our mouth is, to do the things we love, the way we feel is right.
