All companies are different. But we like to think we're a little different to most. You see, as one of the worlds leading privately-owned businesses, we enjoy unusual levels of freedom when it comes to how we operate. It allows us to do business in a freethinking kind of way, and it means our culture is open and collaborative. We make it easy for good people to make great products. Here our associates can work with fewer restrictions while carrying more responsibility. They're free to take educated risks, and to act quickly and decisively. This is the basis for the global success of our products and the extraordinary achievements of our people.
