CIVIC Statement

Town of Wake Forest employees share a dedication and commitment to being C. I. V. I. C. leaders:

  • Community
    Provide a high level of trust between our community and one another. By accepting accountability, conducting ourselves responsibly and demonstrating loyalty, we preserve an environment that supports sincerity, honesty and ethical behavior.

  • Innovation
    We recognize that every employee can improve themselves professionally. While it is important to remember the past, we should accept and understand a changing work environment as the town continues to grow. Professionalism begins with dedication to the empowerment of competent well-trained employees. Our work environment encourages innovative ideas and solutions, growth of self-esteem, and pride in our work and accomplishments. Our demonstrated integrity provides positive role models for our community.

  • Valued Employees
    Each employee has a valuable contribution to the town. Creating a quality work environment is important for all employees. By providing support and treating our fellow employees and citizens with respect which we, in turn, expect; by showing consideration for one another’s time, priorities, work responsibilities and individual contributions to the Town of Wake Forest, we strive to ensure an attractive and effective work environment.  

  • Importance of Core Values & Common Goals
    Staff’s dedication to the town’s core values of caring, commitment, integrity and innovation fosters a collaborative organizational culture that promotes teamwork and celebrates the achievement of common goals. While always respecting the value of each individual or departmental goal, we recognize the importance of the common good of our community and organization. With flexibility, support, competent leadership, fairness and respect for cultural and social diversity, we cooperate in an atmosphere of interdependence, all the while acknowledging that success can only be achieved through the collaboration of all employees, at all levels.

  • Communication
    Effective communication can be best achieved through listening and understanding. We recognize that this is the cornerstone of a progressive and successful organization. By maintaining and projecting an approachable, open-minded attitude and respecting appropriate confidentiality, we ensure open, two-way communication.
