Core Values

Core Values

It’s not just what you set out to do. It’s how you go about getting it done.

Graycor operates within a set of core values that frame our strategy and culture. Our people, capital and reputation are our most valuable resources. Our values provide our people with standards of behavior necessary to maintain and enhance that reputation. Without attempting to rank them, we can say that our actions are consistent with these values:

Long-term Perspective

We believe the business has a perpetual life, but only if it is well managed. We know that actions today can impact the business for years to come, and that long term business success must be earned in a competitive and rapidly changing marketplace. We must embrace change of many kinds, but we must not lose sight of our core values in the process.

Integrity & Honesty

We will always try to do what we say we will do. Our actions will always be guided by an effort to do the right thing. Our dealings with customers, colleagues, suppliers and others will be conducted with honesty at all times.

Health & Safety

We believe that a healthy lifestyle and avoidance of unsafe behaviors are essential to our individual welfare and to the success of our business. We believe that injury can be avoided by safe work practices, accountability and leadership.


We recognize that the Graycor family is made up of individuals with diverse backgrounds, talents and interests and we strive to embrace those differences. We also recognize the critical importance of family relationships and strive to achieve a healthy balance of work and family life.

Continuous Improvement

We must never become complacent. We constantly seek improvement in all that we do – in the safety and quality of our services, in our people and in how we compete for business.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We recognize the value of diversity and fostering a workplace where people have equal employment and development opportunities while feeling safe, welcomed, valued and respected. We are committed to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion through our culture, employee development efforts, trade partners and communities.


We value relationships with others and always strive to earn their trust. We recognize that strong relationships are based on mutual trust and professionalism. We know that free and open communication is essential to a healthy organization and to effective business performance.


We seek to provide services that add value for our clients. We seek to obtain business based on more than price alone.

What sets Graycor apart from the rest

We place greater value on partnerships over profit, and we operate within a set of core values that frame our strategy and culture, including maintaining a long-term perspective, upholding integrity and honesty, demonstrating safety leadership, emphasizing relationships, creating value, striving for continuous improvement, and achieving a healthy balance of work and family life.
