As you meet new Mayo Clinic colleagues, have any shared Mayo Clinic’s primary value: the needs of the patient come first? Maybe they even described “RICH TIES” – Mayo Clinic’s core values of respect, integrity, compassion, healing, teamwork, innovation, excellence and stewardship? If so, it’s not surprising – Mayo Clinic’s values are highlighted in Mayo Clinic Orientation, focused emails, recognition events, and featured stories on our intranet and external blogs. Our environment provides additional reinforcement; walk around our campuses and see prominent posters reflecting our values, along with the values icons on our emails and website. These are constant reminders of what binds us as a community – a shared commitment to our patients.
Look for monthly emails from the Values Council sharing stories about and tips for living the Mayo Clinic Values.
