Company Culture

Corporate culture refers to the beliefs and behaviours that determine how a company's employees and management interact and handle outside business transactions. Often, corporate culture is implied, not expressly defined, and develops organically over time from the cumulative traits of the people the company hires.

A positive company culture has values that every employee knows by heart. Great company cultures support involvement and provide positive, fun ways for their employees to get together for personal and professional development activities, both within and outside normal company hours.

Culture guides discretionary behavior and it picks up where the employee handbook leaves off. Culture tells us how to respond to an unprecedented service request. It tells us whether to risk telling our bosses about our new ideas, and whether to surface or hide problems. Employees make hundreds of decisions on their own every day, and culture is our guide.

Every day at Nothers The Award Store, we celebrate our greatest asset, our team of experienced and talented employees. One of our Core Values is “People” and together we “Develop, train, coach, respect, inspire and reward performance.”

Our social committee organizes and executes activities for their fellow employees and management on a regular basis including an old-fashioned company family picnic, monthly “pot-luck” lunches where we all eat together as well as year-long fundraisers for local service organizations to name a few. Every birthday and personal and professional milestones are celebrated and recognized, whether in the board room at the shop or at someone’s home.

The employees are also stakeholders in the company. Our strong teamwork is recognized quarterly through the Nothers Ownership Thinking program, a performance driven, profit sharing benefit for all employees.

The Nothers focus on culture has become it’s guiding principles. People know Nothers for this. It is reflected in the standard procedures from which we operate. Employees live by it. It can help to get us through difficult times. It keeps all employees working on the same company mission.

While we work successfully as a team, we endure as a happy family.
