Character

The culture at Share On Purpose is built on character and integrity. We firmly believe you must be able to “walk the talk.” We look for this quality in each person who joins the team as well as the clients we choose to partner with. 

Bob Prince, our Manager of Digital Media, is one such employee who exemplifies the principle of character. He stated, “I want people to know that when you throw the ball to Bob, I’m going to do my best to catch it. It’s my personal pride. I want to be everything I can be.”

His work ethic and commitment to excellence was instilled in him early on. “I’ve had a fairly independent life,” Bob said. “I had to make difficult choices from a pretty young age. I’d watch others make choices that didn’t turn out well and I didn’t want to follow that path. I always made the best choice I could, and I can proudly say that I have no regrets.”

Bob’s personal standard of doing what’s right is reflected in the work he produces at Share On Purpose. When asked to define character he stated, “It’s your currencyand if you don’t maintain the value of your own personal currency then what you contribute is worthless. You have to have something you value, which is yourself.”

Share On Purpose seeks employees who take pride in their character but also work to nurture it. “Share On Purpose is a people-centric business,” said Bob. “I love that we do things that make an impact. It’s hard to put that into words, but even in small ways we do things that improve people’s lives. There’s enough negativity out there and I want to be on the positive side of things. Share On Purpose makes me a better person because of the standards we set. I try my best to meet those standards and then model them for other people. For example, authenticity is very important at Share. I want to be authentic in my personal life as much as at work. That means, I say what I mean and mean what I say.”

If you ask Bob or the leadership at Share, they’ll be the first to admit having strong character doesn’t mean being perfect. It’s about committing to truth and being open and honest, even when you fail.

We ask ourselves hard questions. We wrestle with both perceptions and reality to uncover truth, and we face facts even when it’s painful to do so.

This commitment to character means that we will fire clients who treat team members poorly, and conversely, we will terminate team members who don’t care enough to serve each other, or our clients, well.

We also admit mistakes as soon as we find them (which is never soon enough) and will change what doesn’t work.

We pick ourselves up when we fail and use perspective to look for the good in ALL things.

That’s the beauty of an authentic commitment to truth: it’s not about being perfect, but rather understanding that character is indeed a window (people can see in), and we must walk the talk.

Working at Share On Purpose means that our leaders won’t be perfect but are committed to the pursuit of excellence. We will question everything because we want to win at serving, rather than selling.

If you’re ready to commit to being your best self and want to work with a team committed to the same, come join us.
