DLS is an international corporate citizen in a constantly-changing world, but our core values have remained the same over our 29+ year history.

Corporate Responsibility

Throughout our 29 years of expansion in service offerings and locations, our core values have remained the same. These values are simple yet important: being the best service provider; developing employees; and helping communities become healthy, prosperous, and safe. How we incorporate these values into our daily business practices is not simple; we toil daily with decisions about our operational strategy, human resource policies, and philanthropy, and how these align with our corporate responsibility.

We contribute to a number of organizations and foundations that are important to the DLS community, including:

  • 4R Soldiers Retreat
  • Wounded Warriors
