We seek to honour God by impacting the lives of our employees, students, and the community. We believe that God owns this business and we are simply His stewards of it for a season. We want to make sure that all we do in and through the firm honours Him. We believe this is our ultimate goal.
Cornerstone is dedicated to delivering service with integrity, helping people to advance in their career. We are also a diverse institute seeking God in all things and working to expand knowledge in the service of humanity through learning, justice and faith.
This statement is short but is full of meaning. First, it obviously references advancing/changing, reflecting the career development business we have chosen. But it goes much deeper than that. We want to take employees, students, and those in the community and we want to “change” them from their current position (or circumstances) to a better place. Regardless of where they are in life (financially, professionally, emotionally, etc.), we want to move them to an improved situation.
We do what is right even when no one is watching. This core value comes first for a reason. Without integrity, we will not have the impact that we desire. We take this very seriously. We will extend grace when it comes to mistakes and errors, giving people a chance to grow and improve in their jobs. We are not as tolerant of violations in this area. We need to know we can trust our coworkers without question.
We are constantly redefining our goals, expectations, boundaries, and potential. Our team’s talents and performance vary from person to person. That is normal. We only believe that regardless of your ability or performance today, you should want to be better tomorrow. We want teammates that are always striving to learn and grow, improving every day!
We endeavour to create an atmosphere that inspires and enables people to reach their full potential. As a company, we want to meet our employees where they are as they strive for excellence. Our goal is to provide the resources and inspiration required to “advance” them forward on their path. Sometimes this means they advance within our company and sometimes it means they move on to other opportunities. Either way, we want to help!
We provide the opportunity for all to know God and make Him known. No one who works in our company is required to believe what we believe. However, we make it clear early that God owns this company. Therefore, all that we do centres around Him. We will not force anyone to believe, but they will certainly have opportunities to hear.
We use our talents and treasures to make a difference in those who need it most. We believe we are part of the community in which we work and therefore have the responsibility to give back to that community. Whether through benevolence or sponsorships, community service or fundraising, we are going to take the time and energy to give to those who need it.
