Our Values
Making up the building blocks of the TRI culture, our values represent our commitment to “how” we work together.
Be Yourself

We bring our full selves to work every day. Our diverse views, history, personality, character, and experiences are invaluable to TRI and Toyota.

Respect One Another

We celebrate everyone’s differences, opinions, and perspective. We practice mutual respect and act with integrity.

Assume Best Intentions

People are good. We trust and give them the benefit of the doubt. We assume they act the way they do because they believe it’s best for TRI.

Think Globally

We don’t work or think in silos. Our work impacts people within TRI, Toyota, and our communities around the world. We always make it about collaboration.

Make it Happen

We are proactive, not reactive. We push boundaries because we’re not afraid to fail. We succeed together.

Embrace Diversity

We believe diversity makes us stronger, including diversity of ethnicity, gender, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, personality, skills, experiences, and knowledge.

Always Learn

We believe in constant improvement and advancement of ideas and beliefs. We embrace Hansei and Kaizen. We are on a journey to explore, experiment, and learn together.

TRI is fueled by a diverse and inclusive community of people with unique backgrounds, education and life experiences. We are dedicated to fostering an innovative and collaborative environment by living the values that are an essential part of our culture.
