WHO ARE WE?

Taurean is dedicated to protecting its clients and eliminating cybersecurity threats around the world. Taurean's main objective is to "Find relevant work. Create meaningful jobs. Transform 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



The Annual Taurean Culture Book

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.

    It’s that simple. Our families’ needs are our first priority, whether it’s our family at work or at home.
    Inspired by Matthew Kelly’s The Dream Manager, we harness the power of dreams by partnering with our Team Members to build a bridge between their NOW and a better FUTURE.
    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
    Who said it has to be all work and no play? A fun workplace increases happiness and positivity, helping each Team Member become the best version of themselves, forging bonds, and creating an environment that encourages excellence.
    The best investment one can make is in themselves. Our Team pursues excellence through reading, training, and collaborative discussions. As individuals and as a Team, we expand the boundaries of what we can accomplish and create a better version of ourselves for a better tomorrow.
    We harness the power of business to contribute to our surrounding communities through year-round “Give Back” and “Green Initiatives” as part of our commitment to deliver a positive impact on society and the environment.
