Click to learn more about some of the ways we approach the important work of building our team culture and improving ourselves:

  • Team Huddle – Our department gets together twice per month (except during the summer) for approximately 60-90 minutes of team building and culture enhancing activities
  • Quote & Question – We discuss an empowering quote and question every week
  • Book Studies – An optional but growing part of our culture, we conduct book studies 3 or 4 times per year around topics that support our values and personal development
  • Our mantra – Rather than a “mission” statement, we crafted a two-word mantra we identify with and rally around
  • Our values After several discussions, we all agreed on three core values, which provide the foundation of all of our efforts
  • Kudos Korner – Our teammates receive a great deal of praise & wanted to share with the world
  • Special Guests – Special guests periodically spend time with us to improve our ability to enhance education and lead better lives
  • Where is Springy? – We acknowledge the special people and work performed in DTS by passing our “Spring In Your Step” award
