Core Values



Be Optimistic

Everything we do begins with attitude. And at WPS, we choose a positive outlook. Optimism is what allows us to persist, to be resilient, and to inspire those around us.

Show That You Care

Little things can make a big difference. A little help. A little pat on the back. A little extra effort. Because we genuinely care about our colleagues and about those we serve, we show it—in everything we do.

Build Relationships That Last

We’re a family-owned company, a place where people can build a career. We play well with others. We value people and cultivate lasting relationships with employees, vendors, authors, customers, and advisors.

Challenge Yourself to Grow and Learn

We believe in continual improvement—personal and professional—and we’re secure enough to acknowledge that there’s always room for it. We seek out knowledge and have a thirst to learn more.

Strive for Balance

We enjoy the satisfaction of working hard and the pleasure of relaxation. As a family company, we understand the importance of spending time with loved ones and the happiness we derive from that. It is this happiness that propels our passion, our enthusiasm, and our hard work.

Be Resourceful and Take Initiative

We pursue ideas with vigor and take personal ownership for solving problems. It’s our responsibility to create our place on the team and to make a contribution that counts.

Collaborate Openly and Honestly

No individual has all the answers. We solve problems by communicating with each other and working together. We listen, we ask questions, and we approach our collaborations with compassion, empathy, and trust.
