Business Principles and Standards:
MU’s Athletes’ interests always come first.
Our experience shows that if we serve our athletes well, our own success will follow.
MU’s Assets are our Athletes, and reputation.
If either of these is ever diminished, the last is the most difficult to restore. We are dedicated to complying fully with the letter and spirit of the laws, rules and ethical principles that govern us. Our continued success depends upon unwavering adherence to this standard.
MU takes great pride in the professional quality of our work.
We have an uncompromising determination to achieve excellence in everything we undertake. Though we may be involved in a wide variety of activity, we would rather be best than biggest.
MU stresses creativity and imagination in everything we do.
While recognizing that traditional ways of recruiting may still be the best way, we constantly strive to find a better way to promote our athletes. MU prides itself on creating many new innovative practices and techniques that will soon become standard in the industry.
MU makes an unusual effort to identify and recruit the very best person for every job.
Although our productivity is measured by the amount of athletes we help get to the next level, we select our people one by one. In a servicing business, we know that without the best people, we cannot provide the best service or be the best recruiting company.
MU offers our people the opportunity to move ahead more rapidly than is possible at most other places.
Advancement depends on merit and we have yet to find the limits to the responsibility our best people are able to assume. For MU to be successful, our representatives must reflect the diversity of the communities and cultures in which we operate. That means we must attract, retain and motivate people from all backgrounds and perspectives. We believe that being diverse is the only option for success.
MU stresses teamwork in everything we do.
While individual creativity is always encouraged, we have found that team effort often produces the best results. We have no room for those who put their personal interests ahead of the interests of the Mercury Universe and its athletes.
The dedication of our people to the company and the intense effort they give their jobs are greater than one finds in most other recruiting organizations.
We think that this is an important part of our success.
We consider our size an asset that we try hard to preserve.
We want to be big enough to undertake the largest project that any of our athletes could contemplate, yet small enough to maintain the loyalty, the intimacy and the dedication that leads to our athletes’ success.
We constantly strive to anticipate the rapidly changing needs of our athletes and to develop new services to accommodate those needs.
We know that the world of recruiting will not stand still and that complacency can leave our athletes at home with no scholarship.
the recruiting business is highly competitive, and we aggressively seek to expand our athlete’s relationships with the most suitable organizations.
However, we must always be fair competitors and must never slander other companies.
Integrity and honesty are at the heart of our business.
We expect our athletes to maintain high ethical standards in everything they do, both in their sport and in their personal lives.
