Core Values

Belief In People
We are relentlessly optimistic about the power of human potential. We believe that each individual—be it a client, employee or vendor—is intrinsically valuable. Each person, each relationship offers distinctive opportunities to learn, prosper, teach or serve.

Mid-State serves a higher purpose to empower others. Guided by a “servant’s heart” we promote a philosophy of H.O.P.E (Helping Other People Excel). With a strong belief in people as our foundation, we recognize that each person possesses special talents and strengths. We foster a positive environment where each person can discover, improve and express their gifts to enhance the lives of their families, coworkers, vendors and community.

Extraordinary stewardship of valuable resources is the essence of Mid-State’s code of responsibility. We seek deep understanding to wisely shepherd the precious assets we are entrusted with to carefully manage, develop, protect and preserve. We marshal our collective strengths to serve; we strive to unleash creativity and innovation to unveil the “acres of diamonds” in each individual and organization.

Uncompromising integrity is our guiding light. We pledge to be straightforward, credible, and honest in all of our business practices and relationships. We earn trust by responsiveness and reliability. We earn credibility by keeping promises.

Without purpose, without a compass or a map, we wander aimlessly adrift. Our team approach emphasizes working together to achieve common goals. Shared focus on clear objectives ensures success. It is our purpose that gives us Passion!

Passion fuels purpose, stewardship, integrity and belief. Passion is enthusiasm and excitement; passion is energy and fervor. We harness and deliver passion as a key ingredient to every action or service.
