ENA Culture

ENA employees comprise a team driven to achieve excellence through professionalism, empowerment, and balance.

This not only defines the culture we strive to build and maintain, but also provides us with guidance for decision making, communication, and collaboration. The following three elements of the ENA culture serve as a roadmap for our actions.

We exemplify professionalism through the use of professional communication methods, customer service fundamentals, appearance, and respectful interactions.

We are all empowered to make recommendations, raise concerns, solicit feedback, and develop plans to accomplish our work. We balance that empowerment with the guidance and support of our supervisors and teams. No one individual bears the burden to make decisions that impact ENA strategically or financially, or that impact the workload of others without discussion with supervisors and other leaders.

This is the core fundamental that touches all aspects. We need to balance the personal with the professional, the commitment to work with the ability to rest and recharge, and the empowerment to accomplish our work with the guidance and mentorship to grow.

Together, these fundamentals help us maintain an enjoyable workplace and a manageable work–life balance.


Core Values Statement

In the spirit of innovation and excellence, the employees of ENA pledge to exemplify integrity, quality, and loyalty with respect to work, members, and coworkers. 

ENA employees foster a supportive and cultivating work environment that inspires teamwork and cooperation, and promotes pride, trust, a strong work ethic, and an appreciation and respect for each other’s talents, ideas, and differences.

These values are the foundation that motivates ENA employees to be the best they can be for themselves, the people they work with, and those they serve.

We at ENA commit to develop and administer effective employment policies and practices to maintain and enhance employee engagement. We believe in investing in professional development and engaging staff in new and exciting projects allowing them to grow their skillset.

The key to effective work relationships must be continuous communication and involvement, which encourages employees to seek information, make recommendations, or bring to management’s attention any condition or situation which may be of concern.
