Honoring Our Values

One of the most important job requirements for any leader is to put purpose into people’s lives. When people believe what they’re doing truly matters, they’re motivated and fulfilled knowing that every task they undertake is part of something larger. To help illustrate this at RPM, we often recite a story that reflects how we want everyone to feel about working here—like cathedral builders. 

Transparency, Trust and Respect

RPM’s founder, Frank C. Sullivan, set out to create a culture built on transparency, trust and respect. This is the foundation of our corporate philosophy, The Value of 168, which represents the number of hours in a week and serves as a reminder that each of us has a limited amount of time – and a duty to use this gift wisely and productively.
