Focus Point Technology, Inc. Core Values
At Focus Point Technology, Inc. we recognize the importance of credibility, integrity and trustworthiness to our success as a business. We are committed to upholding high ethical standards in all our operations, everywhere in the world. We believe in the principles of honesty, fairness, and respect for individual and community freedoms.
Living up to both the letter and the spirit of this commitment is not always an easy task. As a large and diverse corporation working globally, we recognize that while there is some level of agreement the world over on what constitutes honest and ethical business practice, there can also be valid differences of opinion.
In our working lives, we often experience situations where the ‘right thing to do’ is not immediately apparent. Loyalties – to our fellow employees, to managers, customers and suppliers, to our families, our communities, the environment, the corporation as a whole, and to ourselves — may seem to conflict. When we’re faced with a complicated situation, it can be difficult to decide where the ethical path lies.
Focus Point runs in great part on the support and “out of the box thinking” of Member Partners and next the other suppliers, partners or agents. Member Partners are special and they have a clear say and strong role as the “steering committee” for the Focus Point Brand. In fact the Member Partners actually create their own rules for Membership and for Membership retention. This is not an easy task as most business have grown around self-interest, self-promotion and “me against the world” mentality. Focus Point moves all toward a “Musketeer” philosophy of “One for All and All for One”. In reality small and medium business rarely become big business so the strength of the Focus Point Brand fosters and facilitates the Member Partner’s power and success by consolidating and centralizing much common business interest under the FPT Brand while the Partner grows it’s revenue in a more effective and if possible a geometric fashion.
