Core values support the vision and shape the culture of a company. They’re the essence of a company’s identity. Our values define how and why we started Proofpoint. They’re central to our beliefs–both in business and in life. They’re how we measure ourselves at the end of every day, and the qualities we seek in our employees, vendors, partners and clients. Our values give us purpose and drive our passion.
Every Proofpointer wants to go to sleep at night knowing they’ve done everything in their power to have a positive impact at work. For our clients, this means we will always make decisions in your best interest. For our team, this means we will always put the wellbeing of the entire company above any individual. For our partners, this means we will always treat you with respect. For our community, this means we will give back and provide value as much as we can.
We operate in a very open, straightforward and honest manner. We don’t keep secrets for the sake of keeping secrets. We don’t talk behind people’s backs. And we also don’t sugar coat things. Instead we tell it like it is with courtesy and respect. For our clients, this means you’ll always know what we’re working on, why it’s important and how long it will take. For our team, this means you’ll always know exactly how the business is doing and what you can do about it.
We will always try to put ourselves in other people’s shoes, give the benefit of the doubt, allow for second chances and assume positive intent. For our clients, this means we’ll always strive to understand your point of view and your optics. For our team, this means we’ll be understanding and accommodating to your personal and family needs. For our partners and our community, this means we’ll strive to be there to help whenever you need us.
We don’t know what we don’t know, but we’ll always strive to learn and know more. We pride ourselves on in-depth research and the ability to stay ahead of industry trends. For our clients, this means we’ll continuously push to test new strategies, tactics and channels and bring you innovative ways to do things better. For our team, this means we’ll continuously educate each other and prioritize the test-and-learn approach. For our partners, this means we’ll ask you a lot of questions, and in return we hope you’ll learn something new from us.
