At their recent off-site continuous improvement session, the NNSA Livermore Field Office (LFO) in California unveiled their new set of core values:

  • Integrity – Trustworthy, Reliable, Ethical
    • We are responsible stewards of federal resources
  • Collaboration – Communicate, Support, Team-Focused
    • We work together, communicate clearly & help each other achieve our goals
  • Accountability – Ownership, Personal, Commitment
    • We accomplish our work by taking ownership, admitting mistakes, & meeting our commitments
  • Respect – Professional, Courteous, Compassionate
    • We value each other
  • Excellence – High Quality, Sense of Urgency, Dedicated
    • In all our actions, we seek to achieve the best within us

These core values were developed by the LFO Leadership Advisory Working Group (LLAWG), with input from all LFO employees. The LLAWG was established in December 2014 as the result of an earlier off-site continuous improvement session. The purpose of the LLAWG is to provide advice to Leadership in the management of LFO and to develop initiatives to achieve management and operational excellence. In addition to developing the new LFO core values, the LLAWG is working with LFO Leadership on a number of efforts, including succession planning and improving performance management.
