It is our belief that few things set good companies apart from great companies, however, it is our Mission, Values & Cardinal Culture (“MVCC”) that is the differentiating factor. In essence, our MVCC is the guiding force behind Cardinal Group Management and our team members. It is our expectation that all team members embrace our MVCC, and most importantly, live them out on a daily basis.
- Do the right thing, all the time
Give a mile, take an inch. Doing the right thing, every time, with everyone we come into contact with will pay the largest long-term dividends for what we set out to achieve. This is not always the easiest or most profitable course but it's the one we expect you to take. We are driven by human interaction, relationships and the joy of life itself, not the bottom line. Having team members, tenants, investors, bankers, contractors, vendors and everyone else we touch saying, "WOW!" we will inevitably succeed. Not to mention, it will be more rewarding and fun.
- Build an open and honest relationship with communication
Communicate openly, honestly and respectfully: Information and ideas are the most valuable currency and should be shared generously. One thing we lack at Cardinal Group is mind readers, but we make up for it with people willing to listen. If you are open and honest with your team members and those around you, not only will you be happier, but the people around you will be better-off. Remember, talk less and say more.
- Be adventurous, creative and open minded
Our business is too competitive to allow us to survive without taking chances. Look beyond the present situation and challenge yourself, your team and our company to think outside the box. Find ways to improve and look for ways to innovate. We challenge all of our employees to strive for greatness and to never let obstacles stand in the way of success. By simply believing in our vision ourselves, and taking risks to be great, we are where we are today – and we want you to do the same.
- Be a team player and respect those you work with
Everyone at Cardinal Group has a place on our team and is here for a reason. All team members should strive to create a positive team environment and encourage everyone to perform at their highest level and beyond by supporting each other. We are stronger as a unified group and we are never out of the fight. Effective leadership means serving those you lead, not commanding them.
- Embrace change and new ideas
We can't control the market but we can control how we adapt to it. "There's no such thing as a bad idea." How many times have we heard that? New, fresh and creative ideas are what drives our .company forward and keeps us relevant and successful. Do not be stagnant and set in your ways. Ideas and thoughts should be shared within the company by anyone and everyone, regardless of title. You may possess an idea that helps refine, or even redefine how we do business. So please, share your ideas and make us better! Everyone is encouraged to participate.
- Bring your best each day and create fun
BRING YOUR BEST EVERYDAY AND HAVE FUN On average, the work force spends 40% of their waking hours at work, so we want you to enjoy it! How do you expect to create 'great' if work is simply a pay check? Cardinal Group does not want to be viewed as an employer, rather a place of excitement, an engaging think-tank and a group of people looking to challenge each other to excel and become better people together. Yes, it's a place of high expectations, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun. Strive to be your best and support those around you, pretty simple.
- Pursue growth and knowledge
Curiosity is the first step towards competency and complacency has a hard time finding a home at Cardinal Group. We want people to love what they do so much that they pursue personal and professional growth and an appetite for learning. Never assume you know everything there is to know and never settle for "good enough."
- Do more with less
You are here because you deserve to be here. Cardinal Group prides itself on hiring the best and brightest with exceptional character. You have the ability to accomplish 'great' and much, much more. Your team is here to support you and understand 'great' is only possible if we work together. This company was built on the belief that hard work, motivation, teamwork and doing the right thing rule the day and allow us to achieve more with less. So before you get discouraged and make excuses of why something cannot happen, think creatively of how to solve the problem so it can and does happen.
- Be passionate and determined
BE PASSIONATE AND DETERMINED Love your job, love your life and be darn good at both of them. Passion and determination are far more important than natural ability. Never quit, persevere and thrive on adversity. If knocked down, get back up, every time! In return, we pledge our commitment to support the investment you are making with your time and effort. It's rarely the most talented or smartest who "win", but rather those who stick it out through the sheer force of will.
- Be humble
Maintain an air of uncertainty about our business - under promise and over deliver. Men and women of character never boast, if you desire to have people talk about you and the company, say little and do the right thing. Let the scoreboard do the talking.
Additionally, the Cardinal Team is uniquely structured in the sense that we provide extensive support to each community in the following areas: Accounting, Marketing, Human Resources, Information Technology, Facilities Management, Construction Management and overall strategic Management of the community. We believe removing as much of the administrative burden from the on-site teams as possible allows the on-site teams to focus on what truly matters – the residents, the community’s reputation and signing leases! Recognizing that each market is unique, the on-site team’s responsibility is to ensure the community’s vibe, culture and character fits the markets, and residents, they serve.
