Core Values

ADS-I sense of purpose stems from what we believe and what we value. Our core values are defined by knowing who we are and why we’re here, but most importantly, who we serve.


ADS-I believes that having a clear understanding of who you are, including strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, beliefs, motivation, and emotions allows you to understand other people, and how they perceive you, your attitude and your responses to them in the moment. Our continued self assessment and internal review of who we are and what we stand for happens every day. Before we can build trust based relationships with others, we must know our own identity and what separates us from anyone else.

Integrity and Ethical Behavior

ADS-I believes character matters! Integrity and acting ethically means doing the right thing in any given situation. We believe ethical behavior follows moral principles like honesty, fairness, equality, and respecting the dignity, diversity, and rights of other people. Everything we do is a choice, so integrity and ethical behavior is always choosing the right thing to do no matter what the context is.

One of the most elusive concepts in business is accountability. At ADS-I, accountability is the acknowledgment and assumption of responsibility for actions within the scope of a role or position, encompassing the obligation to report, and be answerable for resulting consequences. We believe that when goals and objectives are understood, benchmarks are set, feedback is provided, evaluations are accomplished and success is celebrated, you’ve created an environment for accountability. At ADS-I, everyone is accountable, regardless of position and or role.

Mutual Trust and Respect

ADS-I is committed to forging relationships built on trust, believing that our word is our bond and that once we give it, then we must honor it, even if it cost us personally. Establishing a corporate culture on the cornerstone of trust enables everyone to know what the standards are and the expectation for doing business. Our trust is built on the core values of integrity, honor, commitment, and respect. Our culture reflects our belief that we must be loyal to each other, and to the customers we serve. We commit to seeking the well being and best interest for each other, to deal with each other and our customers in fairness and honesty, and to invest our time and personal commitment to excellence. Personal responsibility and accountability are our watch words and they create an environment that fosters professional judgment that is anchored by our highest values.

Solid Communication

At ASI, we knows that a common thread found in companies with strong organizational cultures is solid communication. ADS-I practices this at every level from its executives to our employees, we create an open and transparent environment that encourages everyone as a stakeholder to share ideas, quickly resolve issues and concerns and seek opportunities to strengthen lines of communication between each other and our customers.

Optimal Performance

ADS-I believes that performance begins with understanding our clients’ complete needs from their biggest picture to their smallest details and the urgency for getting excellent results. One of ADS-I’s greatest strengths is its ability to quickly understand our customers’ needs and determining the best approach to meeting them in a responsive manner. Our ability to analyze the environmental factors, assimilate data and information, construct solutions, evaluate risk, and deliver success quickly is a hallmark driven by our leadership and all of our employees.

Diversity and Inclusion

ADS-I draws on the wisdom of a workforce that reflects the population we serve and we are better able to understand and meet the needs of our customers. Corporate-wide, we have make important progress toward hiring a workforce that truly reflects America’s diversity, and we will continue to pursue that goal. But merely hiring a diverse workforce is not enough; we make our workplace more inclusive as well. ADS-I was founded on the ideal that from many, we are one, a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. When we tap this knowledge, when employees are trained in team building, decision making, problem solving, and conflict resolution, we not only uphold the principles of our company, we get better results. ADS-I leadership culture and best practices to recruit, hire, include, develop, retain, engage and motivate a diverse, results-oriented, high-performing workforce demonstrates our commitment.
