The IFP Compass

1. Create the WOW

Make IFP the Favorite Company of each supplier, customer, and employee we touch.

2. Add  Value for Customers

of our suppliers and our customers. Integrate to make customer’s processes easier and their
products more competitive.

3. Think Growth and Scalability

Do what is necessary today to build success tomorrow. Each process, policy, and person
must support the growth rate to double in capacity every five years.

Take the initiative and look for ways to increase our sales, control our expenses, and improve
gross margin.

Become a greater expert on IFP tech. Be ambitious to keep learning new things for your

Respond to every situation by looking for how we CAN do it. With resourcefulness, creativity,
and tenacity, there is most always a way to say YES.

7. Act with Integrity

Do the right thing in every action you take and in every decision you make. Own your
mistakes, apologize and make them right. Keep your word.

12. Honor Commitments

Be reliable by doing what you say you’re going to do when you say you’re going to do it.

20. Embrace Change

Be excited about the new technologies and methods we will utilize to stay competitive.

21. Work as a Team

IFP allows flexible schedules individually because we share information and work together in teams to produce results on time. Help each other succeed.

22. Create Great Impressions

The appearance of our facilities makes a statement about the quality of our work. Take responsibility to see that it is clean, neat, organized, and professional.

23. Plan Proactively

Make time to set priorities, plan, and hold yourself accountable to progress toward the goals that matter.

24. Keep it Fun

IFP should be a fun place to work, and while IFPs work is essential, remember to make time
to enjoy the important things in your personal life.


25. Build Relationships

Talk more; email less. Use a positive attitude to engage personally with dignity and respect.

26. Make a Difference

Your time, effort, and, where appropriate, your money can make a difference in your community. Improve the lives of those with whom you interact.
