The company’s mission, "Making A Positive Difference” is the foundation that The LaurelRock Company has built their reputation upon. Striving to positively influence the lives of their clients, employees, and business partners, The LaurelRock Company’s culture is built on a shared belief in its Core Principles which are based on “E.T.H.I.C.A.L.” practices, which translates to Embrace Teamwork, Think Creatively, Honor the Client, Invest in the Community, Continuously Improve, Act with Integrity and Listen, Learn, and Lead.
“Our success has been enabled by our ‘Making a Positive Difference’ mindset, because it permeates through to all of our 54 team members,” adds DeMarche. “We continually strive for our employees to embrace teamwork, share their time and talents within their communities, aim to always improve, and have fun along the way.”
