Our Culture.

Our culture is centered around our core values, which represent who we are as an organization and what we strive for every day. Every member of the Accel team plays a valuable role in this and must be personally committed to each of these five values.

The Accel Group - Core Values
The ‘Accel Way’

The Accel Way is our ‘motto’ of sorts and represents how we live out our core values every day. It means we demonstrate an unwavering commitment to do the right thing, even when no one is looking. We strive to make our name synonymous with professionalism, high quality, and one of a kind customer service. We must learn to get comfortable being uncomfortable in order to grow and evolve. We also empower each other to do what is necessary to take care of our customers each and every day. And lastly, we remember that laughter renews our spirit and keeps us energized.

The Accel Way also accepts diversity and the strength it brings to productivity, innovation, and community. This includes being more intentional in our awareness and understanding of how diverse teams contribute to the organization’s success. It is the result of our growth mindset, willingness to evolve, and ability to seek out diverse viewpoints and experiences. And it supports finding the good in others and providing a safe, comfortable, and welcoming work environment for all.

Check out how we are cultivating our culture…. The Accel Way!

I enjoy working for The Accel Group because my job offers a real feeling of helping people. In addition, the organization understands the importance of a strong work/life balance. As a parent of 3 young boys, it’s important I have that balance.

The best part of working at Accel are the relationships I’ve been able to build with customers and co-workers. I know if I have something exciting to share in my personal or professional life, my team and customers will be there to share in the excitement with me.
