Values

Devoted to Our Principles

Imagine an inspirational poster designed in a collaborative effort by Salvadore Dali, Sir Isaac Newton and Freddy Krueger. It would be an interesting way to describe our inspiration … but we still wouldn’t put it on our wall. We don’t need a poster. Our values live in our bones.

I am because
we are.

Momentous is made up of several smaller companies, all of which add value to the Momentous brand. Individual numbers in the equation may increase or decline, but the sum is always Momentous.

We’re a team, not a family.

Family is important, but don’t tell us you’ve never wondered how you wound up with yours! We know how we wound up with our team, and we know how we will continue to bring in winning players. We’re like a professional sports team: we want the best, and not everyone can make the team. We’re about winning, not whining.

Drifting along is what a log of wood does.

Ok, this one is simple: Get by = Goodbye. What are you capable of achieving? …So why don’t you?

Don’t forget
your ABCs.

Attitude. Behaviour. Competence. All 3 are crucial. But they aren’t arranged that way to help us practice the alphabet; they are placed in order of importance. Competence is still important to us, but it will only get you through the door. Great attitude and behaviour are what will keep you moving forward.

The game can change at any time. Bring it!

We are always readying ourselves, either to execute on a brand new idea, or to improve quickly upon emerging opportunities. This is how we choose to work. Not everyone can keep up. The next great idea can come from anyone, so we’re always listening.

We’ve got more balls than Ikea.

We’re going to take risks that others won’t. Risks don’t scare us, and neither do people who believe goals we set and projects we undertake are impossible. All we hear when people tell us we can’t is that someone else WON’T. And that’s just one less competitor when we do.

We say "hi".

Don’t be shy. We value two-way conversations, whether they take place in our hallways, on social media platforms, or via traditional communications. Being open, approachable, and outgoing are traits that we proudly embody every day. We are happy to start the conversation; we want you to feel the same way.

Just Do It.

Yup. That’s it. Don’t put it off and let it grow dust. Don’t focus on whether it’s your job to do it; figure out how to get it done. …Is it done yet?

The effort goes to where the profit comes from.

Mostly, it’s about making a smart evaluation of where to spend time and money, based on the greatest potential payoff.

We drink. We swear. We don’t fucking smoke.

We tell it like it is. Always have…always will.
