Our Culture

The GBI Way

We believe that one of the keys to our success at GBI is our core beliefs that have been established over the 100+ years of business. To ensure consistency of that belief system as we continue to grow and expand, we have identified 31 Fundamentals that are the foundation for our unique culture—what we call “The GBI Way.” These values are all part of a legacy that started in 1914 and continue to be a significant part of our culture today.

  • Think Safety, Work Safely
    We know and practice safety procedures at all times. We watch out for the safety of our teammates as well, for we’re all part of the GBI family. We never take shortcuts that compromise our safety or that of our teammates. Everyone goes home safely at the end of each shift.
  • Deliver Legendary Service
    We do what we say we are going to do when we say we’re going to do it. This includes being aware of our schedule and on time for all phone calls, appointments, meetings, and promises. If a commitment can’t be fulfilled we notify others early and agree on a new deliverable to be honored. We produce what we promise.
  • Align Expectations
    We create clarity and avoid misunderstandings by discussing expectations upfront. We set expectations for others and ask if we're not clear of what they expect of us. We end all meetings with clarity about action items responsibilities and due dates.
  • Value Partnerships
    We get to know our clients and coworkers on a more personal level. We talk more and email less. We send information via email but resolve issues verbally. We understand what makes others tick and what’s important to them. Strong relationships enable us to more successfully work through difficult issues and challenging times.
