Corporate Social Responsibility

Thank you for taking an interest in Great Northern’s Corporate Social Responsibility program.

We would like to call your attention to three elements that really speak to our commitment to taking care of our team members and community.

Our Values. Great Northern was founded on four core values that drive our culture. They’re not just words; they are part of every team member’s DNA. We are all empowered to help our customers succeed, and when they do well, we’ll do well and share that success with our team and the communities we serve. Our four core values are:

Integrity – doing the right thing
Opportunities for Growth – bringing out our best every day
Entrepreneurial Spirit – innovative thinking and embracing change
Shared Future – committing to a future where we all win

Our Tagline. Great Northern’s tagline is Great Expectations, and it really sets the tone for what our stakeholders can expect from us. We have high standards for ourselves and our teammates. It drives us to be better, and to take care of each other.

Our Great Northern Cares Program. Great Northern Cares supports community initiatives that improve the quality of life for the communities where we work. This program demonstrates our team member’s commitment to a shared future for all when we donate our time, talents, and financial support to community organizations.

Great Northern exists to serve its customers and the communities in which we work. We are proud of our social, environmental, and economic initiatives that unite us and ensure a better future together.
