More than 17,500 strong, our employees are united by a shared set of values and ethics known as The CCA Way. These guiding principals define how we act. They keep us accountable to each other, our communities and the inmates we serve. They maintain our commitment to the important public service we provide. And they strengthen the trust and camaraderie that unites our best and brightest.
The CCA Way means we’re on the same page when it comes to being the best full-service adult corrections system in the nation. Each day, CCA employees do their best.
The American Correctional Association, which represents the nation’s highest standards in corrections, plus G.I. Jobs, Forbes and Corporate Responsibility Officer magazines have recognized the strength, commitment and capabilities of our national work force. Many of our correctional facilities, too, have received local, statewide and regional awards for their professionalism.
We operate with integrity.
We respect each other and the work we do.
We cultivate trust between each other because, without it, the stakes are high.
We have loyalty in our purpose, the service we provide and the many who rely on us.
We understand that safety and security is the core function of corrections.
We are committed to maintaining quality in all our endeavors.
Accountability keeps us responsive to the public, government, inmates and others.
Being service-driven means we provide excellent service at all times.
Our cost-effectiveness combines the benefits of business with the standards of government.
Teamwork is the cornerstone of our operations; being a solid team is greater than the sum of our parts.
Communication is not a one-way road; instead, we know it’s a two-way street.
Innovation keeps us ahead of the curve.
That’s the CCA Way.
