Core values – define as principles, standards, or qualities considered inherently worthwhile or desirable-are the bedrock of HIALEO-AFRICA & U.S.A; they are a pervasive set of understandings about how we work together and treat each other. Clearly articulated values usually answer the question “What is most important to us?” and provide guidance for day-to-day decisions and behavior. Values describe how we go about the business of achieving our mission and vision.
