Because how we do things is as important as what we do, we've developed a set of core values that drive our corporate culture and define how we act and what we expect from one another at every level of our business. Our values are critical to how we successfully conduct business and are central to how we work together and with our customers.
We guide the continuous improvement of our business to meet the needs of our customers. We challenge the status quo and create new solutions. We strive to be an entrepreneurial culture where innovation is encouraged and supported by readiness for change.
We empower our employees and trust them to exemplify the Align Technology brand with one another and with our customers. We place a high priority on open and honest communication, building respectful and trusting relationships. We act with integrity and fairness. We are honest and ethical.
Exceeding the expectations of our customers is our top priority. We lead by example. We execute with excellence in all aspects of our work. We are a performance-driven culture with regard to our people, our processes and our products. We recognize performance and acknowledge those who go above and beyond their duties to reach new levels of excellence.
We hold ourselves and one another to the highest standards of accountability with regard to our work, our professionalism and our outcomes. We are willing to look at areas of improvement and take action to ensure customer benefit and future success. We own our results and do not blame others.
We listen to and build partnerships with our internal and external customers. We communicate openly and value the input of others. We operate from a place of common goals. We engage one another and work together collaboratively across the business to deliver results.
We believe in helping our customers and their patients achieve healthy, beautiful smiles—through our Invisalign and iTero brands and through our corporate giving and community outreach efforts. Through our corporate sponsorship of organizations such as Operation Smile Feeding America, America's Tooth Fairy, The Second Harvest Food Bank, and the The Red Cross, as well as volunteering and fundraising efforts of our employees around the world, we work to help causes that support:
- Building a better world for children
- Ending local hunger
