The Seven Core Values of Mission Springs Water District

Values are the pillars upon which an organizational culture is built. Values must be intrinsic to the individuals who make up the organization. Values must surpass “concepts” and translate into guiding convictions that are embraced first by leadership and then passed through to every level of the organization by example. We live by the values of:

Professionalism: MSWD employees conduct themselves with professionalism. Professionalism describes the standards of conduct, performance, knowledge, and skill necessary to perform our specific role within the organization.

Accountability: MSWD employees take ownership of our decisions and accept responsibility for our actions. We are accountable to the public we serve.

Respect: We respect all people on the basis of their human worth. In order to earn respect we must first give respect.

Integrity: MSWD employees operate with the highest degree of integrity. We are honest and hold ourselves to consistent moral principles and ethical standards.

Servant Attitude: MSWD employees consider the other person as more important than one’s self. This Servant Attitude considers the impacts of our actions on others and the organization before self.

Excellence: MSWD employees strive for excellence and are conscious of our performance at all times. We are committed to continuous learning and innovation ensuring that our services exceed expectations.

Stewardship: Stewardship embodies the ethical behavior of accepting responsibility and management of a resource – water. We operate the District as a public trust as stewards of this precious resource.
