Our Core Values
Values: We Practice What We Preach
"What would you tell your children are the core values that you hold at work and that you hope they will hold when they become working adults? If you awoke tomorrow morning with enough money to retire for the rest of your life, would you continue to live those core values? Can you envision them being as valid for you 100 years from now as they are today?"
- James C. Collins and Jerry Porras, Harvard Business Review
Values are at the core of everything we do for our clients. Thus, they are extremely important to everyone who works at the Prouty Project. Every one of us can recite them with energy and passion. And, we intentionally and actively use them in our hiring practices, our performance evaluations, and how we interact with each other — and our clients — daily.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“The Prouty Project has provided us with exceptional insights from having seen many other companies and executives in similar circumstances.
