Our core values at Research Square Company represent what we believe and what we value as a team. They are also important in how we live out our mission of working toward a faster and fairer publication process that allows all researchers to contribute. We employ our core values in all that we do so that we remain true to ourselves as an organization and as individuals who are part of something greater.
As Patrick Lencioni writes, "Core values are the deeply ingrained principles that guide all of a company’s actions; they serve as its cultural cornerstones. They can never be compromised, either for convenience or short-term economic gain."
Our Core Values are standards of behavior that are important to our team at Research Square Company. We see them as our compass—a navigation tool—for all of us. When we're in doubt or facing an important decision, these values guide our way.
