Rocket’s efforts at community-building aren’t confined to the walls of our offices, however. Our guiding document, the Rocket Community Bill of Rights, codifies the emphasis we place on respect, honesty, and inclusion when working with the broader Rocket community of partners and customers. As always, I’m extremely proud of the high quality of service and professionalism that Rocket employees deliver on a daily basis. But what I really want to highlight and commend this month is how Rocketeers are contributing to their communities around the world.
On December 7, more than 1000 Rocketeers from all around the globe are going to be giving back. From Waltham to Campbell, from Chelyabinsk to Dalian, from Bangalore to Yokohama, we will be making our Rocket mark on the communities in which we live, work, and serve. I couldn’t be prouder to be a Rocketeer. After all, one of our company core values is “Rocketeers are the Difference,” and as a global, connected community, we are empowered to solve problems of all kinds. We take our commitments seriously. And we never let each other fail—ever.
Building community requires consistent and concerted effort from everyone. Though it’s often hard work, all of us can reap the rewards of community involvement, both in business and in society. On December 7, we are bringing our values to life and bringing our values to you. And afterwards, we will all get together, as One Rocket, in each of our offices, to share our stories of humanity, empathy, trust, and love with each other.
