Our knowledgeable, highly collaborative and adaptable teams produce content experiences that deepen the relationships with our customers, foster engagement across multiple media formats, and offer marketers unique ways to engage with enthusiasts and professionals in our categories.
Our Core Values
We treat others fairly, honestly, and with respect. We always strive to act in ways that are consistent with all our values.
We believe diversity enriches our endeavors and are committed to creating an inclusive workplace. We seek diverse voices to share through our core content channels, and foster communities of interest to which everyone is welcome.
We believe that by working collaboratively we can combine our talents and experiences to create better products and services than we can by working alone.
We strive for excellence in the products we make and the services we provide. But we keep the efforts we expend in balance with our customer's sense of value.
Through our products, we teach our customers fundamental techniques and principles that empower them to create, improvise, and get better at the activities they pursue. In the same way, we value, honor, and promote creativity in our work at Taunton.
We expect curiosity and value the desire and ability to question the status quo - not for the sake of being contrary, but because independent thinking can lead to better ways to serve our customers and conduct our business.
