NYSID recognizes the broad range of stakeholders who have an interest in how we manage and operate our business. In March 2018 NYSID’s Executive Team and Board of Directors developed a statement of Core Values. All Employees, volunteers and Directors should know the Core Values and operate in the spirit of the Core Values on behalf of NYSID.
Diligence. We work tirelessly on behalf of individuals with disabilities to discover new, as well as expand, existing employment opportunities and other quality of life measures.
Integrity. We act with the highest levels of honesty, transparency, fairness and ethical conduct in all business decisions to earn and retain the trust and confidence of our peers, members and oversight agencies.
Collaboration. We engage staff, members, and community partners in our efforts to uncover and synthesize the best ideas in our work to improve the lives of the individuals we serve.
Innovation. We embrace and manage change through responsive leadership and data informed decision making that aligns with our vision.
Partnerships. We value our relationships with our customers, members and key stakeholders which are based on shared missions and mutual goals.
In January 2019 the NYSID Board of Directors amended the NYSID Corporate Compliance Plan to include our Core Values and place an emphasis on the Compliance of NYSID Members and Corporate Partners.
