The spirituality pillar was formed because at a time President and CEO Joe Steier was going through a difficult personal event, he was embraced by the love and support of stakeholders around the company praying for and loving him and his family. At that point he made a commitment to build a company where stakeholders of many faith traditions or of no faith tradition could work in an environment of love and support. Since 2007, the Spirituality pillar has become one of the 3 pillars of the revolution interwoven throughout the operations.
The Spirituality Pillar strives to work with operational partners to build on the underlying need that all humans have, that is to find purpose in their lives. At Signature leaders are expected to embrace core values known as the Sacred Six. The Sacred Six; Compassion, Team Work, Respect, Integrity, Patience and Positivity are the backbone of the major religions in the world.
In today’s world there is so much strife because people find it difficult to talk to, listen to and learn from people who are different. Signature strives to be a beacon of light avoiding judgement of people regardless of their faith tradition and or no faith tradition and embracing people regardless of their race, gender, orientation, nationality. By embracing our differences, we are able to build cohesive teams that embrace the Sacred Six and are equipped to be successful in the challenging healthcare environment today.
The Spirituality Pillar reinforces the principle that all stakeholders are encouraged to support each other in unconditional love and the power of prayer the way Joe received it, then the people who have asked us to serve them find a sense of peace because they are served by people who have a deep sense of purpose in the work.
