The Bay West Way of Being is born out of the Company’s Core Values. As a Best Place to Work, we will use this Way of Being to guide us in our business decisions, our interactions with our customers and vendors, and in our interactions with each other.

We seek your advice; we must hear your perceptions, beliefs, and recommendations. Employees who tactfully and supportively provide feedforward to peers, supervisors, managers, and owners are meeting one of their most important performance goals.
