Our culture is defined by our core values.  As a company, core values are the genetic DNA that makes up our corporate structure, and are required to embodied by everyone within that structure.  Our core values reflect how we think, act and communicate.  They are the framework from which we make all of our decisions.

Bring Passion to Work

We always go above and beyond what is expected and are willing to fight for the client’s best interest. We are always engaged in the moment and remember why we are here.

See It, Own It, Solve It
We each make a difference in the company by holding ourselves and each other accountable. As individuals we are all problem solvers. When an individual sees a problem, they don't wait for someone else to fix it – they own it, they make it theirs and find a solution. When we see opportunity, we embrace it; we follow through with the solution to the end. At T1M, we encourage each other to take action and help team members with issues when they bring them to the table.
