CODI's Core Values
Integrity and Honesty – Constantly strive to uphold the highest professional standards. Be transparent in all business dealings and use input from stakeholders, including consumers, family members, staff, and referral/funding sources in decision making, strategic planning, and quality improvement.
Respect – Consistently be respectful of the rights and dignity of others. Accept people for who they are and for their knowledge, skills, and experience.
Customer Service – Exceed customer expectations, not merely meet them. It is through communication, inclusion, empathy, empowerment, and teamwork that we shall gain our customer's trust and respect.
Diversity and Inclusion - Sustain a dynamic work environment where people from all walks of life with all kinds of experiences come together to further CODI's Mission and Vision.
Integration and Partnerships - Ensure each program runs seamlessly and integrates with other programs and community partnerships to deliver the best possible outcomes for those we serve.
Empowerment - Nurture staff to understand we are all leaders, and as such, our job is not to get other people to follow us but to empower others to lead.
Teamwork - Strengthen and inspire a goal-oriented, optimistic CODI team with shared values and vision.
CODI is committed to upholding the highest ethical standards in all business practices. We shall carry out our mission with unquestionable integrity, which is the cornerstone of achieving credibility and ensuring public trust. The ability of CODI to achieve its mission is directly dependent on our actions as well as the day-to-day choices we make. We are accountable for creating and maintaining credibility and trust with internal and external shareholders, including consumers, board members, volunteers, and the community at large. We shall deal fairly, ethically, and honestly with funding sources, family members, community partners, referral sources, contractors, suppliers, and consultants. To maximize resources for those we serve, we shall routinely cooperate and collaborate with professionals, colleagues, and community partners.
