We are honored to announce that after a rigorous evaluation process, Govig is officially certified Evergreen. Evergreen businesses are purpose-driven organizations that are built to create a lasting impact within their industries. By upholding Evergreen values, we have created a positive business ecosystem for our employees, customers, and families to thrive.
According to the Tugboat Institute, Evergreen companies are aligned by the following values:
Purpose: Being passionately driven by a compelling vision and mission.
Perseverance: Having the ambition and the resilience to overcome obstacles and keep pursuing the purpose indefinitely into the future.
People First: Engaging a workforce of talented associates who excel as a team and are motivated by the purpose and the culture, as well as by total compensation, in the belief that, by taking care of them, they will take care of the customers, suppliers, partners, communities, and their families.
Private: Taking advantage of the ability of closely-held private companies to have a longer-term view, greater confidentiality around strategies, and more operating flexibility than public or exit-oriented businesses.
Profit: Not mistaking profit as the purpose of the business, but recognizing it is essential to survival and independence, and the most accurate measure of customer value delivered.
Paced Growth: Having the discipline to focus on long-term strategy, balance short-term and long-term performance, and grow steadily and consistently from year to year.
Pragmatic Innovation: Embracing a continuous improvement process built around taking capital-efficient, calculated risks to innovate creatively within constraints.
We are elated to now join a class of other purpose-driven organizations within the Evergreen community. To learn more, visit: https://www.tugboatinstitute.com/what-is-evergreen/
