Our Core Values

The foundation we're built on is our commitment to you

  • Customer Focused - We seek the best for our customers and strive for their success.

    The definition of a successful project is defined by the customer. We deliver on our commitments, and strive to be clear in setting and meeting expectations. We are quickly accessible to our customers regardless of other activities going on. We strive to be trusted advisors to our clients, and gain this high level of trust by looking out for their best interest at all times. Trust can take a long time to build, which AXIOM is committed to engender. With every successful project, we increase the level of trust our client has in AXIOM, which sets the stage for a desired long term relationship with them.

  • Be Curious - We desire to listen, to learn and to understand.

    Through listening and asking questions we learn what is driving our customer, other vendors, and fellow team members. We seek to be open to hearing what others are really saying, and not letting preconceived notions cloud our judgement. Every interaction is a chance to learn more about the business of our customers and how we can help them be more successful. Curiosity leads to a deeper understanding, which serves as a foundation for a successful project and deeper relationship with a customer. Being curious can be considered a vocation at AXIOM. Employees who are the most successful here are those that enjoy learning a wide variety of technologies and business areas.

  • Integrity - Our moral integrity is our guiding light.

    We do what is right even when no one else is looking. As consultants we provide value to our customers from our experience. The quality of our advice is why we are in business. When we see situations where things can be improved, we do not hesitate to recommend a solution to the customer

  • Teamwork - Together, we succeed with mutual respect and kindness.

    Success does not happen in a vacuum. It requires great people working together. We routinely drop everything to help a co-worker in need because we genuinely want all of us to succeed, making choices that put the team before individual performance.

  • Employee Centric - We care for one another while honoring our differences.

    At the heart of every company is its people. Without us the company would simply not exist. Supporting us are our families and friends. Without that support system we would not be able to do the quality work we continually do for our clients. We are constantly humbled by everyone’s commitment to the company. We genuinely care about the well being of each other, knowing the price for one’s families and friends that is exacted by having a job in the IT industry. We strive to keep work at work to allow for a great work - life balance.
