We care.We've worked hard to create products that are honest and authentic, just like us. They reflect the culture that really exists within our walls — not flashy or fancy, but highly dedicated to doing the right thing for our brand and our loyal consumers. Burt's Bees is a company that cares about its consumers, the environment and the community and, equally as important, we care about each other.
This culture of caring drives our core values of steadfast commitment to The Greater Good, harmonious tension, passionate teamwork and embracing change. It also drives our everyday behaviors and activities. In the stewardship of our brand and the environment, we set high standards, build for the future and never compromise quality. We are dedicated to a debate and decide process, where we confront issues head on, challenge each other constructively and resolve issues amicably. We embrace a can-do attitude where we all roll up our sleeves to pitch in and take ownership, break the mold and celebrate action. And an incredible passion for people exists here, where we always give others the benefit of the doubt, celebrate excellence every day and invest in our growth.
Our culture of caring also influences how we re-inforce our values through our commitment to health and the environment, our development and recruiting activities, how we measure and reward employees' performance and how we communicate and celebrate our achievements.
Yeah, we're a little quirky. We have an extremely diverse group in experience, backgrounds and ways of working, which makes for an engaging and positively challenging environment. People feel free to express and be themselves around here, which makes for very few dull moments.
We are a very fast-paced, nimble company that, because of our size and entrepreneurial spirit, is able to get things done very quickly.
