Our culture of caring sets us apart from the rest. Southern advocates for diversity, equity and inclusion. We strive to create a safe place and positive experience for all team members at all times.
At Southern, we stand for what is important in a team environment: empowerment, support and sincerity. We encourage open, productive conversations because connection is at the center of everything we do. And we never shy away from a learning opportunity, no matter how big or small.
Southern follows the Three Rs: doing the right things, in the right ways, for the right reasons. And we prioritize the Three Ms: My Mission, My Team and Myself — in that order. We aren’t perfect. But by placing the Three Rs and the Three Ms at the center of our business, we believe we’ll always find a way to get it right.
Your opinion matters. Our team member suggestion program, onboarding and offboarding questionnaires, and engagement surveys are designed to monitor the ever-evolving needs of our teams. We know how important it is to be happy at work and Southern strives to make this a reality every day.
There’s more to work than just work. While our jobs may be in different departments, locations or capacities, it is important to remember we are all part of the same Southern family. Our engagement efforts help team members take a break, connect with one other and form relationships that last a lifetime.
Your opinion is valued. All team members — brand new or tenured, housekeeper or director — are encouraged to share ideas and suggestions. Our culture is one of diversity, inclusivity and empowerment. We’re people, caring about people.
We put our money where our mouth is. Not only do we give back as a company and encourage team members to do the same, but we also find and create ways for our teams to contribute without losing their well-deserved time off. Many of our community service initiatives offer passive contribution options or occur during working hours, so team members can do good for the community and for themselves.
Southern was built on the principle that everyone, regardless of role or tenure, deserves the respect of their superiors, an ability to forge their own path and the chance to learn something new every day. This appreciation begins at the top, because leading by example is the first step to ensuring the message makes its way to the front lines. Southern wouldn’t exist without you, and we know it.
