No two days are the same as an ambassador at Imagine Media. We call our interns ambassadors because we are held to the same standards as a full-time Imagineer and are entrusted to fulfill and embody Imagine’s core values. Our core values are the guiding force for decision making from day one and they remain part of our daily conversation during our time with Imagine Media. Setting expectations helps us understand both what’s expected of us and how we can embody the culture of the company.
Most professionals might be familiar with core values as a list of abstract words that get posted on the wall in your office, introduced to you during your orientation and then never heard of again. At Imagine Media we approach our core values with sincerity and they are part of our daily conversations, celebrations and goals. This is why it was huge news last week when our leadership team announced that we were going to make some changes to our core values. The updates included shortening the descriptions of each core value in order to make them more memorable and changing our I-word from “Innovative” to “Integrity.” Given that we live and breathe these core values, it was very important to our leadership team to know that these were still values that resonated with us as a whole. The team was excited about these small, but mighty changes to our guiding truths. So how do we put these values into practice? Check out this list of ways that the Imagine Media team incorporates core values into our everyday processes and long term goals.
