Our beliefs are the basis for our strong culture, which connects Gore Associates worldwide in a common bond.
We believe in the individual and each Associate’s potential to help Gore grow and succeed. We also believe in the power of small teams, and through Gore’s lattice structure, Associates can communicate freely to assemble talents and diverse perspectives to quickly make good decisions and produce quality work that helps us deliver on our promise to our customers.
We also believe we’re all in the same boat. As Associates, we have a vested interest in the success of the company, and we share in Gore’s risks and rewards while having an added incentive to stay committed to our enterprise’s long-term success. As a result, we feel we’re all in this effort together, and believe we should always consider what's best for the enterprise as a whole when making decisions.
Finally, we believe in the long-term view. Our decisions are based on long-term payoff, and we don’t sacrifice our fundamental beliefs at Gore for short-term gain.
