Our Core Values
Core Values that define who we are as a company and expectations we have for each individual member of our team, both inside and outside of the workplace.
Live with Integrity and Respect showhide
“Live in such a way that you would not be ashamed to sell your parrot to the town gossip.” – Will Rogers
Remember to always live by the “Golden Rule” – treat others the way you would want them to treat you. We hold the door open for others, we say “please” and “thank you”, we don’t engage in office gossip or say hurtful things to others. We treat each other as family. At Overture, we genuinely believe it is important to adhere to the highest moral and ethical standards.
This commitment to truth and mutual respect is displayed throughout all levels of the company, as well as across our supplier and client partners. The Overture culture is not only about how we behave towards each other within our walls, but also how we represent ourselves in the general community every day.
Work Hard, Play Hard showhide
“I work hard, and I tend to play hard. I very seldom rest hard.” – Jacqueline Bisset
We believe that this is what defines and separates us as a company. We all have to work to support ourselves and our families… why not turn this necessity into fun?
We set aggressive (but realistic) goals, then work hard to meet and even exceed those goals. The key is to make sure that you don’t get so consumed in your work that you forget what is truly important: enjoying life, having fun and loving whatever it is that you do.
Some may suggest we’ve perfected the art of celebration, we think we understand that proper work-life balance is the key to evolving and not burning out. Life is not all about work and every conversation doesn’t need to be about business. Having this balance is what deepens our relationships and guides us in our pursuit of happiness.
Be Significant. Be Big showhide
“Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star.” – W. Clement Stone
We believe that whatever it is that you choose to do in life, you must strive to be the very best at it. We’re not an average company and neither are our people. Don’t settle for mediocrity.
Be a difference maker. Have a positive impact on everyone around you through your words and actions.
Be bold. Raise the bar and grow from your mistakes. Push your limits to reach all your goals.
Be a global citizen. Consistently give your time, money, or resources to help those in need.
Be Significant. Be Big.
Weird is Cool showhide
We love weird. It’s what comprises each and every one of us. We encourage weird. It’s what makes our company what it is today. Being creative, taking chances, and trying things no one else has ever done before is what defines our personality.
We are the unusual thinkers, the pioneers of new ideas every day. Sometimes we are great and sometimes we make mistakes. But our ability to learn from setbacks and head in a different direction than everyone else is the key to our success.
Take Ownership and Accountability showhide
“He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.” – Benjamin Franklin
We believe that the best teams work well together because each individual member takes personal responsibility for their role and is always there for their teammates. The best team members take initiative when they notice issues so the team can succeed. The best team members will voluntarily step in and help out when they see a teammate overwhelmed, in return only wanting to see the team succeed.
As a team, it is important that we commit to an open and honest environment that fosters learning and growth. If all of us are accountable for our actions and take ownership of our roles and responsibilities, we will build a championship team through the combined force of our strengths.
Do More With Less showhide
“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.” – Zig Ziglar
Make it happen, period. Overture was born with 3 employees, a small office space and little money. It was the positive attitude and lack of excuses from each and every person in the company along the way that helped take Overture to where it is today: one of the largest promotional product agencies in the United States.
We believe in innovation, change and creative ideas. The key to success is taking these ideas from concept to implementation. Sometimes you may be the only person working on a project, sometimes you’ll have tight deadlines and sometimes you’ll have skeptics and cynics. Regardless of the obstacles ahead, we keep a smile on our face and make it happen.
Live Proud, Maintain Humility showhide
“Believe in your flyness, conquer your shyness.” – Kanye West
We take pride in our appearance, what we do, the company we represent, and the people we work with. We remain humble, whether we are a top performing sales-person, part of the executive management team or an entry-level employee.
We strive to always be enthusiastic about our mission and go above and beyond the call of duty for the company and our clients. We build bridges – never burn them – through our work ethic and superior service levels. The relationships we establish are deep and lifelong. Never overpromise, always over-deliver.
