Forum Communications Co. holds strong these core beliefs, which form the foundation of an employee culture we all can be proud of.
Success has not and will not come from one newspaper, one department, nor one person alone. We need a true spirit of collaboration to move forward in a way that’s sustainable. That means finding the common ground with our fellow employees and relying on each other’s strengths and talents to create a stronger and well-rounded company for the future.
The more passion you have for your job, the more you are likely to enjoy it. The more fun you are having, the more successful you will be and the more successful we will be. Fun means different things to different people, but at the heart of it is positivity. Express yourself in a way that is real to you, and don’t be afraid to laugh out loud.
Work hard but work smart, too. When the day is done, go home and do the things that bring you satisfaction. Forum Communications Company recognizes that our work demands a great deal of time away from our loved ones, but we will strive to help with the balance and integration of work and family.
It’s simple: All employees are valuable and all employees deserve respect. This company was built on that virtue. We create a culture of respect through honest and direct communication and through compassion for our fellow employee. At Forum Communications Co., there is no place for arrogance or rude behavior.
It’s important to be invested in your job and to find passion in what you do. When you take ownership of your work, you are more likely to succeed. You also are more likely to have fun.
Our company has a strong tradition which we aim to build upon. But to move forward in a new media world, we have to be willing to stretch our minds and our ideas beyond what’s comfortable. That’s where innovation comes in. To be innovative, we need to challenge each other and never refuse to make time to brainstorm new, creative ideas.
Listen to others
Every employee has a voice. No matter how big or small the issue, we are committed to listening. This is essential in creating a culture where employees feel valued. It’s also essential to making our environment a place where people feel safe and supported – all of which are necessary as we move forward.
