Our culture and values


Our future is only as strong as our culture

We wouldn’t be where we are today without our people and the shared sense of purpose they gain from our Market Based Management® (MBM®) philosophy. This provides the confidence and the will to look beyond established wisdom, and not only meet but often far exceed expectations. We always question what could be done better, then work together to achieve it. This means being receptive to new ideas and insights, and communicating freely and openly about challenges as a team.

This mutually beneficial way of working has been shown to be more efficient and productive, and it helps explain our motto – See What’s Possible™

MBM Guiding Principles

Market-Based Management® (MBM®) is the engine that powers the Guardian Industries family of companies. MBM is an holistic approach to management that integrates theory and practice and prepares organizations to deal successfully with the challenges of growth and change.

The theory of MBM is rooted in five dimensions:

  • Vision: Determining where and how the organizaiton can create the greatest long-term value.
  • Virtue and Talents: Helping ensure that people with the right values, skills and capabilities are hired, retained and developed.
  • Knowledge Processes: Creating, acquiring, sharing and applying relevant knowledge, and measuring and tracking profitability.
  • Decision Rights: Ensuring the right people are in the right roles with the right authority to make decisions, and holding them accountable.
  • Incentives: Rewarding people according to the value they create for the organization.

When these dimensions are applied in an integrated, mutually reinforcing manner, they create continuous transformation and positive growth.

‘’What differentiates us, what nobody else has, is our unique culture and management philosophy called Market-Based Management‘’
