Our Values

Throughout history, ethical philosophers have focused on four core virtues: Courage, Wisdom, Justice and Temperance. From the earliest writings of Plato and Aristotle, through the teachings of the world’s great religions, up to present times, these basic moral and ethical principals have remained constant. Rather than create our own unique list of corporate values, Hickok Incorporated has adopted these time-tested virtues as the underpinnings of our corporate culture. We strive to live by these core values in everything we do, every day.

Courage

  • Having the strength to do the right thing, especially when times are tough.
  • Exhibiting moral fortitude at all times, even when no one is watching.
  • Living by our principles, with an attitude of positive resilience.

Wisdom

  • Making decisions based on facts, within the context of our professional experience.
  • Striving for intellectual growth, with a focus on honesty and integrity.
  • Maintaining a thoughtful, reasoned and open-minded approach to our work.

Justice

  • Demonstrating fairness to all stakeholders, including our shareholders, customers, co-workers and communities.
  • Keeping our promises to others, inside and outside of the organization.
  • Respecting the importance of all people, in an authentic and compassionate manner.

Temperance

  • Maintaining self-control, regardless of the inevitable ups and downs of daily life.
  • Performing our duties with a disciplined, methodical and practical approach.
  • Acting with moderation and humility under all circumstances.

 

Community Involvement

At Air Enterprises, we strive to actively demonstrate our core values through community engagement. We are currently engaged in the following projects:

  • We volunteer our engineering and project management expertise in support of Inclusioneers, a partnership of volunteer engineers formed to assist Summit County businesses, organizations and public agencies in the creation of an inclusion-friendly community.
  • We sponsor a vehicle for the “Adopt-A-Car Workshop” which makes electrical and mechanical modifications to battery powered ride-on cars for children with mobility needs.
  • We support the 16th annual SummaHealth Sapphire Ball, to benefit the Williams Center for Breast Health and other clinical areas.
  • We participate in the “Holiday Toy Room Program” to donate toys that foster families give to the children in their care.
  • We support the University of Akron College of Engineering “Winter Break Experience” by providing factory tours and mentoring to engineering students so they can experience the life of an engineer in a manufacturing environment.
