At Modus Operandi, our core values define the very heart of our company’s identity. We believe that the code of behavior defined by a shared value system is vital to a healthy culture. Our core values provide a solid foundation for delivering exceptional value to our customers.

We believe certain values should go without saying … things like producing quality work, acting with integrity, being honest…. Our guiding beliefs – our Ethos – go beyond these basic expectations. We demonstrate our core values in:

  • Working toward the greater good
  • Our dedication to do what is needed to support our customers and our company
  • Fearlessness in taking on challenges and supporting the mission
  • Acquiring, maintaining and demonstrating outstanding skills
  • Our willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty
  • Acting in the spirit of All for one and one for all
  • Doing what is right

We express this code of behavior in a single core value …

               Act with the Ethos of a Musketeer.

Musketeers are most familiar to us through the fictional works of Alexandre Dumas, however his characters were based on real historical figures. Later, well after the publication of Dumas’ novels, we have the example of an American hero, the Marquis de Lafayette, who started his military career as a French Musketeer. Musketeers were dedicated to the service of their King their country, and their units, as we are to our customers, our company, and our colleagues. They continuously honed their skills, were fearless, and highly loyal to each other, and countless times went above and beyond the call of duty in service of the greater good.

The Musketeers embodied all of the behaviors found in the ethos of the people of Modus Operandi, and they are a fitting namesake for our core values.
