“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” This tried-and-true principle stands the test of time and is the foundation upon which our Company was built. Mary Kay Ash believed that treating each other with mutual kindness and respect is not only required, but naturally leads to a strong, fair and healthy working environment.
Mary Kay Ash once said, “It’s so simple, yet makes such a difference. Pretend that every single person you meet has a sign around his or her neck that says, ‘Make me feel important.’” At Mary Kay, this is a reality – from being recognized for a job well done to people taking an interest in you.
Mary Kay Ash coined this term to describe the selfless pursuit of the greater good, a dynamic team spirit of helping others which is found throughout the halls of our offices around the globe. As she once said, “When everybody is motivated to serve others, everyone benefits.”
We recognize the importance of building a balanced life. In fact, Mary Kay Ash often shared her personal priorities of faith first, family second and career third. Following this tradition, encouraging employees to find the proper balance of priorities in their lives has remained a vital part of our culture around the globe. At Mary Kay, we understand that a successful career is just one part of a balanced life.
