Taurean is dedicated to protecting its clients and eliminating cybersecurity threats around the world. Taurean's main objective is to "Find work. Create jobs. Change lives -- For the glory of God!" While never losing focus of what is expected on a daily basis, at Taurean there is a vision that goes beyond the day to day hustle and bustle. Taurean's culture was established on five main tenets:
Family First, Dream Big, Have Fun, Achieve Forward, Give Back
Inspired by Zappos and their employee satisfaction levels, Jeff Jaime decided to incorporate one facet of the Zappos corporate culture: The Culture Book. Every year Taurean Team Members diligently put together a tangible collection of memories from the recent past. There are 5 key Core Values from which the Culture Committee schedules events for Team Members to volunteer, share a meal, and spend quality time together.
Below the five Core Values are described in more detail by our CEO, Jeff Jaime.
We cannot be the best version of ourself as a company if our people are not the best versions of themselves as individuals.
We dedicate resources to helping identify, plan, and accomplish their dreams
