A big part of what guides Calibrex as it designs and builds communities across Ontario is our core values. Curated by our leadership team, this set of core values drives the company’s decisions. They are inclusive, aspirational and at the heart of everything we do.
The entire team believes in the importance of core values and practices them. From designing homes, to sales, marketing, constructing and framing, to helping homeowners select their finishes, our professional team embodies these values. Every core value guides our path, tells our partners and clients about who we are and what’s important to us, and provides clarity when we are working towards a goal as an individual or a team.
Excellence is defined as the quality of being outstanding or extremely good. You often hear companies say they are ‘striving for excellence’ and at Calibrex, we have reframed that so that we put excellence of the forefront of everything we do.
Our mandate is to make the very best. Our customers have entrusted us with their home and they deserve our very best each day. We do not strive for good, we strive for great.
Excellence is essential at Calibrex. From looking at a floor plan from the homeowner’s perspective, to offering the highest caliber of finishes and designing communities that stand above the rest – we do it all at a superior level because excellence is essential.
Honesty is our policy. All of our relationships are based on honesty, from our internal teams to partners and tradespeople, to our relationships with our homebuyers. We know that buying a home is one of the biggest investments one makes in their lifetime and we want it to be smooth and memorable. In our experience, timelines can change when new homes are built from the ground up, so we focus on honest communication at all touch points throughout the sales and construction processes to keep our home buyers informed and up to date on the progress.
When the Calibrex team is honest and communicates their level of work, as transparent as possible, that’s when excellence and true growth is possible.
At Calibrex, we value each and every team member’s contribution to the company’s success and we celebrate them individually and come together as a team regularly to take in those special moments. However, we don’t rest on our laurels. We also stay humble, knowing that after every celebration, there is more work to do and more bars to raise.
We never want to take any opportunity for granted and we consider it a special opportunity to be able to design and build communities and homes for our customers. By staying humble, we remain open to opportunity, able to exceed expectations and avoid capping the level of our success.
We do things a little differently at Calibrex. Our team is very hands on and always ready to assist when needed. Our management team encourages and empowers all employees, partners and trades to take initiative, solve problems and help each other out.
Taking initiative in a well-run company and during the home building process can be intimidating, but we strive to create an atmosphere of openness and innovation. When someone takes initiative, they are applauded for it and it often makes our team better for it. We consider the team a family and like a family member we are all happy to lend a helping hand when needed.
This core value is important at every level within the company. Our leadership team is committed to growth and nurtures their own personal growth through mentorship programs, coaching and sharing knowledge with our team members.
All Calibrex employees, partners and trades are encouraged to continue learning, whether it be through taking courses, updating skills and participating in mentorship programs. We believe in lifelong learning and know it enriches everything we do at Calibrex.
We encourage our team members to lead with actions instead of words. Guiding others with the intention of inspiring them to copy behaviours so that the outcome is positive and collaborative.
On site with our team members and partners, we always encourage everyone to be thinking and acting in a manner that they would be proud to repeat and have duplicated. This fosters the best of relationships between team members, and our trade partners working on site. It also transfers to our relationships with our home buyers, because they see leaders in action and feel confident in our ability to deliver a dream home.
As we grow as a company, we will continue to reflect on our core values. The six showcased here are the ones our team embodies day in and day out, while working with customers, on site constructing homes and with our partners creating communities that will leave a lasting impression.
At Calibrex, our core values play an integral role in our company’s success. More than a mission statement, these values define how we work as a team and how we work to succeed every day. They influence our identity, our integrity and the way the world views us and guide our team in reaching for new heights in everything they do.
