iHire core values - accountable

iHire’s Core Values Series: Accountable

At iHire, our eight core values – growth-focused, transparent, collaborative, accountable, innovative, committed, optimistic, and inclusive – are embedded in everything we do. Find out what being "accountable" means to the iHire team in this video – the first in our Core Values Video Series.



“We do what we say we will do and proactively communicate if a commitment cannot be met, along with a plan for how and when we will resolve the situation.”

Why is accountability important to our culture? It’s how we measure and report our progress. It’s how we take ownership of projects and processes. It’s how we respond when things don’t go as planned. It’s how we take responsibility for our actions (or our non-actions).

Want to strengthen the accountability of your own team? Here are some of the strategies we follow:

  • Set goals and measure your progress
  • Hold yourself accountable and find a colleague to do the same
  • Reward yourself – celebrate your wins and your coworkers’ successes
  • Be honest and realistic about what you’re able to accomplish – learn to say “no” when necessary
  • Recognize your strengths and improve your weaknesses
  • Give feedback to others and ask for feedback in return

Stay tuned as we continue our series on iHire’s core values.
