CARE stands for Communication, Accountability, Respect and Engagement

 

Unyts promotes a culture of honest and respectful communication. We are held to a strict standard of quality which can only be achieved through individual and organizational accountability. Respect is so important to us that it is included in our mission statement and permeates everything we do.
 
We strive to create an atmosphere where employees feel engaged, meaning they are devoted to achieving objectives and organizational success.
 
Professionalism
Becoming a part of the Unyts’ family requires that, in addition to your technical skills, you demonstrate the CARE principles with donors, colleagues and community partners. We are unique. We are WNY’s ONLY organ, eye, tissue and community blood center. We are tightly regulated and require employees to be conscientious and demonstrate superior levels of professional decorum. We care about how we do things, what we say and how we treat people.
We don’t get a second chance to make a good first impression. First impressions mean a lot to our donors and their families.
 
We adhere to a business casual dress code. What is business casual? Business casual is crisp, neat and looks appropriate even for a chance meeting with a CEO. It should not look like cocktail party or picnic attire. It’s not tight OR baggy. Business casual is NOT a suit; it tends to be classic rather than trendy. Casual business attire includes: dress slacks, a dress shirt with a collar, dresses, skirts, sweaters, turtlenecks and dress shoes. Whether you are in business casual or scrubs, we expect our employees to look groomed at all times. While we can appreciate artistic expression, tattoos must not be visible while at work. Piercings are limited to ears. No facial piercings.
 
We look for employees that demonstrate the above qualities in addition to bringing a high level of commitment, loyalty and enthusiasm to champion Unyts’ mission.
