Cross Company Culture & Value System
Since the beginning Cross Company was founded on principals of valuing our human talent and endeavoring to create a culture built on total honesty, trust, mutual respect, integrity and the highest standards of ethical business conduct. And we hold all our associates accountable to those ideals.
Because we are 100% employee owned we see our associates are business partners, not employees. Therefore we practice a servant leadership style of management whereby management provides direction, tools and resources necessary for associates to do their jobs efficiently and effectively, and provides ongoing feedback and help when needed.
Because Cross Associates are employee owners, Cross management teams offer frequent communication about how Cross Company is performing and how management is doing its job and meeting objectives so that Cross Associates can hold management accountable.
We strive to create a friendly, fun and family oriented environment, so that Associates enjoy coming to work every day plus we celebrate our successes with fun activities!
