Washington Outdoor Lighting was founded with the purpose of offering our clients a handcrafted “Wow!” outdoor lighting experience. To do this, we learned that it all has to start with our people. The core passion of Washington Outdoor Lighting is making goals and dreams a reality. This is pursued internally by providing our employees with as many tools as possible to grow professionally and personally. This is pursued externally by helping our clients fully see and experience their properties true value at night. We believe our people create our culture, our culture creates our brand and our brand creates our business. This all begins with our core values that we work hard to live by everyday.
We put quality first. When faced with a decision, quality trumps time and convenience. It trumps money whenever possible. High quality service and products will be reflected in everything we do.
We make business simple. We will be easy to find, easily accessible, and quick to respond to our clients and to each other.
Human interaction is when our brand becomes real. Service will shine most in these interactions. We ask ourselves “How can I help?” in all human interactions.
We are transparent, honest, and ethical in all of our interactions with employees, clients, consumers and vendors. We tell and receive the truth with grace. Let your yes mean yes and your no mean no.
WE DO HARD THINGS:
We use challenges to motivate us to improve both personally and professionally.
