Many companies view their mission statements as self-congratulatory slogans. At HGL, we believe ours is an imperative. Written via a collaborative effort by our employees, it’s a kind of litmus test for our daily operating culture and core values. It is discussed in meetings and shared throughout the company.
Sticking to our principles rarely means choosing the easiest or cheapest solution. But we are willing and do make the hard decisions when we have to. Ultimately, even the hard choices can lead to something better - to a climate of greater integrity, innovation, and opportunity for our clients and our associates.
Simply put, we’re on a mission to deliver our best while building to a higher level.
