Living the core through our mission, values, and competencies


To positively impact our team members and the communities we serve

So “What does Live the Core mean?” The core of Thompson Thrift encompasses our Mission, Core Values, and Core Competencies. These three aspects make up the culture of Thompson Thrift—why we do what we do, our guiding principles, and the behaviors we are all striving to achieve.

At Thompson Thrift, our Mission Statement isn’t something that we simply put on the wall. We live it every day by making a positive impact and serving our communities in our work and personal life. As a company, we are successful due to our individual and collective efforts and by Living the Core!


The growth that we’ve seen over the past decade at Thompson Thrift has been incredible and really speaks to our core principles and values, and makes everyone excited to show up to work every day knowing there aren’t really many projects out there that are too big or too difficult for us to do.

Instills Trust

Here at Thompson Thrift, instilling trust is as simple as having confidence in one another. When trust is present, team members can admit weaknesses and mistakes, ask for help, accept feedback, take risks, and give one another the benefit of the doubt. These are the essential ingredients for growth, progress, and innovation. As a company, we aim to embody this competency in every aspect of our business, internally and externally.

Communicates Effectively

We believe that effective communication is essential in all aspects of life. Whether you're speaking to a broad audience, small team, colleague, family, or friend, clarity is key to ensuring your message is being received and understood. Communicating effectively also includes the approach or the tone in which you communicate. Treating others with dignity and respect, attentive listening to questions, concerns and interests, and being open to new ideas or change, are all part of effective communication.

You are aligning with your team's goals, determining strategic action steps, holding yourself accountable, being honest with yourself and others, evaluating progress early on in the process, and often—all these actions are vital to driving results at Thompson Thrift.
