In 2016, we began a journey to craft a new set of values that represent the best of who we are and the best of what we will be. We wanted values that help us create and sustain an environment where we can all be our best—every day. So instead of gathering a handful of execs to write our values in a remote conference room, we asked our people—all of them—to describe their optimal environment. Our CORE4 values are the result of those first steps, but they are by no means the end of our journey. We want everyone—in every HireRight location—to be able to see themselves in these values. And we expect everyone to live them. After all, the action is what makes them real.
