At NMS, we place high value in our people, planet and the places we work. Our business practices are built on and reflect our core values.
NMS strives to build strong relationships between the company, our clients, employees and communities. We wish to inspire and motivate those with whom we work to share their ideas, talents and workplace experiences every day because we know that our people make us who we are.
Our culture and corporate citizenship is evidenced in our commitment to safety, sustainability, diversity and community.
“The environment will be protected and sustained” – it’s one of our core values and represents a strong commitment to protecting and preserving the environments and communities where we do business.
NMS continually takes steps to ensure our business practices align with our communities’ sustainability goals. We are a Green Star® company and actively work with our clients to reduce waste and energy consumption in every area of our operations.
We’re dedicated to educating our employees on sustainable practices and promoting the well-being of our people and the planet for generations to come.
Our people are our priority. At NMS, we create environments in which all people are treated with dignity and respect.
NMS employees work together in vibrant, inclusive workplaces where diversity is actively pursued, promoted and viewed as a vital strength. Our goal is to mirror the diversity of the communities in which we work. We do so by consciously recruiting people with minority status and further enabling our employees to succeed by providing management training and mentoring programs. Today, we are proud to employ a highly diverse workforce, 65 percent of which is minority status.
NMS is also NANA’s largest employer of shareholders. From NANA shareholders to shareholders in the communities we serve, we’re dedicated to Alaska Native hire and development.
Through our involvement in community programs and partnerships, employee volunteerism and charitable contributions, NMS actively invests in the communities where we live and work. For example, we’ve partnered with SAVE High School for years to provide students with fresh fruits for breakfast, lunch and snacks.
Our community support also extends to organizations like:
- Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation
- Alaska Food Policy Council
- Alaska Oil and Gas Association
- Alaska Support Industry Alliance
- Alaska Peace Officers Association
- University of Alaska Anchorage
- Alaska Pacific University
- Junior Achievement of Alaska
