Mary Kay Ash was on to something. The corporate culture she created began with practices such as imagining that everyone she met wore a sign that read "Make me feel important" and identifying the selfless pursuit of the great good as the Go-Give® spirit. She steadfastly believed in keeping one's priorities in balance, with her personal priorities of "God First, Family Second and Career Third" as well as always doing what is right, honorable and ethical with hard work and fortitude.
We continue to honor the culture our Founder created by carrying on this extraordinary legacy today. Walk through the halls of Mary Kay in any of our markets across the globe, and you'll experience an atmosphere of teamwork and respect where working relationships are built upon trust, honesty and kindness. We're all a part of the Mary Kay family.
At Mary Kay, we're not just enriching the lives of women around the world, we're helping our employees develop their full potential through a variety of training, leadership and mentoring programs. We do this with a spirit of encouragement and positive support.
Our employees also enjoy tangible rewards, such as a competitive benefits package and exciting recognitions and prizes for jobs well done. And we never miss an opportunity to celebrate. Our employees recognize birthdays, anniversaries, successes and milestones, both personally and professionally. Ours is truly a company that celebrates people. Mary Kay once said "You can take away all of our assets, leave us our people, and we can do it again because people are our most important asset".
As a Mary Kay Family, we take great pride in our legacy of caring. Giving was a way of life for Mary Kay, and we've been taught as well to understand the importance of giving back. The Golden Rule isn't just a smart business principle; it's an extraordinary way of life. And it reaches into every corner of our business around the globe.
Mary Kay is changing the lives of women and children around the world with efforts that range from providing reading resources to girl is Taiwan, to supporting children's charities in Kazakhstan, to partnering with Habitat for Humanity® to build homes for families in need in the United States. We're also proud to support The Mary Kay FoundationSM as it funds research on cancers that affect women and strives to eliminate domestic violence against women and children. These causes were close to the heart of Mary Kay Ash, and at Mary Kay, you can help make a difference every day.
