Professional Values


We pursue our mission with honor, fairness and respect for the individual, ever mindful that there is no “right way” to do the “wrong thing.” We uphold the values of the EFNR in every action and decision. We are committed to act in good faith, to comply with the rule of law and with EFNR policies and standards.


We believe that striving to be the best in our work, our relationships, our ideas, and our services is the greatest demonstration of our pledge to customer satisfaction. We are determined to do the best at what matters most. Our success depends on our employees’ and volunteers’ ability to deliver the level of consistent excellence expected by all who rely on us.


In an effort to support our mission, we are willing to take prudent risks. We strive to be proactive, innovative and creative in all we do.


We remain dedicated to our customers and our cause. We hold ourselves to the same standards of excellence that make the EFNR a premier organization. We are committed to discovery and continuous improvement in developing and implementing our programs, research and services.


We are dedicated to a single purpose, fueled by a diversity of thought and action. We serve responsibly as members of all the communities in which we live and work. Our intent is for our members and volunteers to represent our diverse population, so we can maximize the relationship between our stakeholders and the EFNR.


We value our EFNR members, volunteers and patients and treat them with respect as individuals. We operate in a climate of openness and trust in which each of us fully grants others respect and cooperation.
