Schaefer Advertising Talent Philosophy
Every job in the world comes with a certain set of expectations. But at Schaefer, we set the bar unapologetically high. Exceeding expectations is a great place to start. Every job matters, and whether it's behind the scenes or in front of our clients, performing each task with excellence is what sets us apart.
Every Schaefer employee is responsible for positively contributing to the length and breadth of our culture. We have a responsibility to each other and to our clients, so we will be our best, healthiest selves. That doesn't mean we're all the same; we're a diverse collection of personalities, preferences, tastes and talents. We will be patient. We will be kind. We will be respectful and compassionate. We will put others first. We will always tackle conflict with respect.
Good work is expected. Great work is rewarded. We all play a role in advancing this company forward, and each person?s path will be clearly defined based on their responsibilities, performance, capacity to grow and drive to learn. We invest and reward employees who consistently demonstrate a drive for company and personal growth.
We will provide a clear path for all employees through training and experiences to develop the skills and characteristics needed for advancement. We value transparency in the form of open and honest dialogue across every position in the company. We want to understand your career aspirations ? and we will be transparent with you as that relates to your opportunity for growth and advancement.
No one's perfect. And no one's an island. If we're going to meet our high standards and lofty goals for growth and achievement, we all need accountability. To us, this isn't a looking down but a coming alongside of one another as we all pursue excellence. You have a responsibility to yourself and to the agency to do what you say you are going to do, when you said you were going to do it. And help hold others accountable to doing the same.
