What Does it Mean to Have Integrity?
Former Harvard Business School professor Michael Jensen sheds light on the true meaning of integrity in his research paper, “Integrity: Without It Nothing Works.” Jensen says that integrity is the practice of honoring your word and never giving your word to two or more things that are mutually inconsistent. Therefore, having integrity is a necessary condition for maximum performance; it’s also a pathway to being trusted by others.
Integrity is Business at Gemstone
Here at Gemstone Media, it’s important for us to interpret Jensen’s writing in a business context. We say “integrity has a critical effect on our business: and it is in the form of increased performance.” We think of integrity as a law, like the Law of Gravity. When the Law of Integrity is respected, you’ll experience enormous performance increases. We have experienced a 300% increase in our business because this concept is fundamental to our operations and our relationships.
Gemstone Media’s Commitment to Integrity
We value integrity. It’s not just an abstract idea to us, but rather a critical part of our DNA, a lifestyle; a practice; a way we keep ourselves accountable to our clients at all times. The media production industry can be fast-paced and even cutthroat when competition inevitably emerges. Amid this environment, we still choose to operate upon integrity – always – while many other companies are missing that link and instead prioritizing shiny numbers over you. We have seen many agencies and production companies who made promises that they couldn’t deliver and who didn’t operate with integrity collapse and disappear over the last decade and a half. While we have been steady in our practice and retained more that 96% of our clients.
At Gemstone Media, we give our word, we honor it. That’s why we offer a 100% satisfaction money back guarantee. Everyone who has dealt with us from clients to vendors to contractors would whole heartily agree. So, when we say we prioritize our clients and exceed expectations, we do. When we say we’ll meet your deadlines, we will. When we say our advice is rooted in decades of expertise, it is. When we say we’re committed to using only the best equipment and design the strongest strategies to meet your needs, we are. We we say “world class customer service”, we mean it and you can expect it! We put you on the red carpet everytime!
We feel our integrity bridges the gap between impersonality and authenticity. Because we bridge that gap, our clients know they’re not numbers to us; they’re a part of our Gemstone family. The positive results of this symbiotic relationship can be seen in the beautiful professional quality of our productions as well as the smooth as glass production process itself. You can count on us.
