Mission Values & Guiding Principles
Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone’s task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it. Viktor E. Frankl

Our Values & Guiding Principles
It’s not simply about hiring or recruiting, or having the power to decide who gets hired, or about being the boss. Those things are in fact easy. What’s hard is building sustainable relationships, and the integrity by which we choose, earn, build and keep those relationships.
Personal Excellence & Accountability
Personal excellence is about deciding each day to be the best we can be in service to others. We believe what comes to us matches us and we take absolute responsibility for this. We show up and do what we say we will do, stand up when tested on what we believe to be right, and stay until the job gets done, right. For that we are accountable.
Business and personal life are not mutually exclusive, likewise business and spirituality. We enthusiastically embrace the interplay of personal and professional growth in our work, enjoying every aspect of this journey to build a dynamic, rewarding and fun place to work.
Trust & Collaboration
We are nothing alone. Ashton & Associates is an alliance partner with a group of highly conscious business professionals who strive to continuously raise the bar in executive search, recruitment and human resource services by responsibly delivering people-first results to employers and job seekers alike.
Building trust is about doing what we say we’re going to do and communicating openly and clearly – genuinely listening and responding in truth and clarity – saying what needs to be said,in the tone that it needs to be said, without attachment to the outcome.
Transparency & Fair Play
It’s not ‘who’s right’, it’s ‘what’s right’. And that means wholeheartedly seeking solutions for the greatest good of all parties.
Fair play means honoring our agreements and expecting the same from others.
Transparency means there are never any hidden agendas.
To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, — that is genius.Ralph Waldo Emerson
