“Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do.” – Potter Stewart.
While each of the values set forth in our slogan are extremely important to us, it’s likely that “Ethical” entails the most weight and responsibility. “Experienced” and “Established” help to communicate the unique value that we feel we provide as a direct result of having cultivated Randahl Construction over the past few decades, and also serve as a reminder to hold ourselves to a higher standard. “Ethical,” on the other hand, is the central tenet of our business, as well as a way of life. Under no circumstances, no matter how unique or desperate, can the value of ethical business practice be compromised.
Why Ethics is Important in Commercial Contracting
The importance of being ethical lies in a number of reasons. One of these reasons is that committing to being ethical often results in a positive “domino effect,” causing ripples throughout the business that lend themselves to a better customer experience, a higher quality of work and greater overall satisfaction amongst all parties involved. For example, a commitment to being ethical means that a client will never be overcharged for work that is completed. Doing so would be an automatic violation of a true commitment to being ethical. It also means that the professionals carrying out our work are treated fairly and with respect, which in turn helps to ensure that the work that is done is of the highest quality, no matter the size of the project. The end result? A customer that has the pleasure of seeing their vision come to life. That is how a commitment to being ethical has led to a successful, sustainable business plan.
Doing the Right Thing in Construction
Another reason is that, put simply, we really just want to do the right thing. The feeling of satisfaction that accompanies the completion of each and every project we do would be non-existent if it we were to do it without fairness and the customer’s best interest in mind. Owner and founder Randy Olsen
holds the virtue of being ethical in particularly high esteem not just because it’s sound business practice, but because doing the right thing is a lifestyle, not something that gets left at the door when he walks in the office. Interestingly enough, we find that when we prioritize ethics first and treat our customers with the respect they deserve, we tend to find success as a business as a result. Who would have thought?
