About Schmidt Associates
For more than four decades, we have described the way we work as “Servant Leadership” to ourselves, to our clients, and to our community. We are proud of our unique culture of Servant Leadership here at Schmidt Associates and trust that when someone walks through the door, they will sense the difference. We have a genuine interest in the career and aspirations of every team member. We want them to feel good about the work they are doing, understand how their work fits into the big picture, and for them to have confidence that we will assist them with any training and educational needs to achieve their goals. And that all begins on day one! We strongly emphasize and encourage professional and personal development through our extensive orientation program; through Schmidt Academy; through on and off-site training seminars; and through our tuition reimbursement program. Our office is built on continuous learning, entrepreneurial spirit, and teamwork.
Our number one priority is to lead through service and excellence to others – employees, clients, and the community alike. We build relationships by emphasizing the importance of making a journey together. Our employees are not units o...f production and our clients are not units of income; we imagine together, we work together, and we succeed together!
We believe our greatest asset is our people because of their enthusiasm, creativity, technical expertise, professional experience, social skills, and passion for lifelong learning. We champion, reinforce, and support excellence in service and design. Everyone makes important contributions as individuals, but we are more powerful as a team working together. We believe a transparent communication style promotes mutual understanding and trust that resonates throughout the organization. We are committed to an environment that allows for a healthy balance between our professional endeavors, family lives, and community contributions. It is our responsibility to be an economic, intellectual, and social asset to our community
